Oct 10, 2007 (12:10 PM EDT)


BALTIMORE, Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Metastorm, a leading provider of Business Process Management (BPM), Business Process Analysis (BPA), and Enterprise Architecture (EA) software for aligning strategy with execution, today announced its inclusion on Software Magazine's Software 500 ranking, now in its 25th year. Each year, Software Magazine ranks the world's foremost software and services providers, published as an online catalog.

"We are delighted to be ranked among the most prestigious software companies in the world," stated Robert Farrell, chairman and CEO of Metastorm. "Metastorm's inclusion in the Software 500 illustrates our continued commitment to providing our worldwide customers with the most robust and comprehensive solutions in our market. We are very proud to have helped so many companies drive value and deliver results which in turn have helped us get to where we are today."

Metastorm has maintained leadership in a highly competitive BPM software market, while at the same time delivering above-market revenue growth and profitability on a repeated basis. In addition, Metastorm has made strategic M&A moves to increase the depth and breadth of its offering as well as increase its industry expertise. Recent acquisitions include CommerceQuest in 2005 and Proforma Corporation in 2007 -- the latter of which allowed the company to expand its product portfolio to offer robust, best-of-breed Enterprise Architecture and Business Process Analysis solutions that complement its enterprise-scale BPM Suite.

The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world's largest software and services suppliers targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers and business managers involved in software and services purchasing. The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2006. This includes revenues from software licenses, maintenance and support, training and software-related services and consulting.

"The 2007 Software 500 results show that growth in the software and services industry was healthy from 2006 to 2007, the ranking year," says John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com. "The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners. It is a quick reference of vendor viability. That is content of value."
