Explore the data

Analysing the changes between the current Global 100 Software Leaders and the previous ranking, published in 2014, indicates just how dynamic the market is. Both lists were compiled for PwC by International Data Corp. (IDC).

Fourteen companies fell off the current list, which means 14 are new. A churn of 28 seems like quite a bit in just two years. Four of the 14 companies that fell off the list were acquired, and one (Compuware) split into two companies.

Actually, it’s fairly easy to fall off the list. Of the bottom 12 in the previous list, 10 are gone.

  • Adobe (#11) with 23% of revenues;
  • Cisco Systems (#14) with 35%;
  • Citrix (#19) with 27%.
