World's Top 10 Software Companies

  • Microsoft (MSFT
    Microsoft Corp
    ): The world leader in software companies, Microsoft continues to maintain its dominance with total revenues of $77.85 billion in 2013. Of this, $65.7 billion, or 84 percent, was from its software stream. Microsoft’s software revenues exceed those of its next two competitors combined.                                                                                                       
  • Oracle (ORCL
    Oracle Corp
    ): Oracle surpassed IBM in 2013 to gain the number two spot in software revenues. Its software revenues were $29.7 billion in 2013, out of a total revenue of $34.74 billion.                                                                                                                                         
  • International Business Machines (IBM
    International Business Machines Corp
    ): The large conglomerate offers a wide range of products and services, including both hardware and software. It consistently derives 25 to 30 percent of revenue from software. Of the total revenue of $99.75 billion for 2013, software contributed $29.1 billion.                                                                                              
  • SAP (SAP
    ): The Germany-based multinational software giant generated $18.9 billion in revenue from its software stream, out of the total revenue of $22.87 billion. Software represents 83 percent of its business. (SAP’s official report gives revenues in euros. For this article, we converted euros to U.S. dollars using the December 31, 2013 exchange rate of 1.36.)                                                                                                                                              
  • Symantec (SYMC
    Symantec Corp
    ): Nasdaq-listed Symantec, the global leader in software security solutions, generated $6.4 billion in software revenue from total revenues of $6.9 billion.          
  • EMC (EMC): NYSE-listed EMC takes the number six spot with $5.6 billion of software revenues out of total revenues of $23.2 billion. (EMC also owns the software company VMWare which is number eight on this list. The companies are listed as separate entities on the New York Stock Exchange. For that reason, this list treats EMC and VMWare as two separate entities.)                                                                                                                          
  • Hewlett-Packard (HPQ
    HP Inc
    ): The global giant is mainly known for printing products and solutions. From its total revenue of $112.298 billion, it derived just $4.9 billion from software. Although this is a small percentage of Hewlett‑Packard’s total revenues, it still makes the company the seventh largest software company.                                                                         
  • VMWare (VMW
    VMware Inc
    ): VMWare, owned by EMC, remains separately listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Its software stream revenues for 2013 were $4.8 billion, out of total revenues of $ 5.2 million. If the software revenues of EMC and VMWare considered together, the company would be the fifth largest software company in the world.                      
  • CA Technologies (CA
    CA Inc
    ): Nasdaq-listed CA Technologies has $4.2 billion from its software stream, out of total revenues of $4.643 billion.                                                             
  • (CRM
    CRM Inc
    ): Ironically, the NYSE-listed promotes itself with the motto, “No Software.” The company sells software through the software-as-a-service model. In 2013, it saw $3.8 billion in revenues from software, out of total revenues of $4.07 billion.
