SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - Sitecore, a leading web content management and customer experience management software company, today announced its inclusion in Software Magazine's Software 500 ranking of the world's largest software and service providers. Sitecore attained the rank of #358 on the 2012 list. In its first year on the list, Sitecore has also earned two distinctions, among the top 10 companies in the $30-$50 million in revenue category and in the top ten overall in revenue growth rate.
"Customers interact with companies in so many different ways today -- over the web, via mobile and social apps, and offline," said Michael Seifert, CEO, Sitecore. "Those customers expect relevant, personalized and meaningful interactions. With Sitecore's customer experience management software, every interaction becomes unique, more relevant, more engaging and more compelling to the customer. That's what delivers measurable results -- and what drives people to keep coming back. The result is happy customers, who engage, buy more and ultimately become lifetime customers. Our inclusion in the Software 500 validates the strong growth our company has sustained over the years, and the value of the software that we deliver to our customers and partners."
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 2012 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was again healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $643.6 billion worldwide for 2011, representing approximately 17 percent growth from the previous year's list," says John P. Desmond, editor, Software Magazine. "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."
The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2011. This includes revenue from software licenses, maintenance and support, training, and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. The financial information was gathered by a survey prepared by Rockport Custom Publishing, LLC and posted at www.softwaremag.com, as well as from public documents.
