Software Magazine Ranks HCL Technologies as One of the World's Largest Software Companies

SUNNYVALE, California and NOIDA, India, October 1, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- HCL Technologies today announced its inclusion on Software Magazine's Software 500 ranking of the world's largest software and service providers, now in its 28th year.

HCL Technologies was ranked 40th, up four spots from last year's ranking, with software revenues up 6.2% YoY.

"The 2010 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $491.7B billion worldwide for 2009, representing virtually flat growth from the previous 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," Desmond says. "It is a quick reference of vendor viability. And the online version, to be posted soon at http://www.Softwaremag.com, is searchable by category, making it what we call the online catalog to enterprise software."

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.

Some 47% percent of the 2010 Software 500 companies are privately held.

The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2009. This includes revenues from software licenses, maintenance and support, training and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on their total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. The financial information was gathered by a survey prepared by King Content Co. and posted at http://www.Softwaremag.com, as well as from public documents.
