SOUTHPOINTE, Pa - ANSYS, Inc today announced that it has been named to the Software Top 100™, the leading and independent online overview of the world’s largest software companies. For the 2009 list, ANSYS placed at 75.
To compile the annual Software Top 100 ranking, software companies are ranked according to their revenues coming from “prepackaged” software sales. Revenues from subscription and support activities (also called “maintenance” contracts) are included; revenues from service activities such as consultancy, training, custom software development and system integration are excluded.
The list is used primarily by the software industry for market and competitive analysis. “ANSYS first appeared in the Software Top 100 in 2007, at position 92,” said Balder Verberne, Software Top 100 editor. “The company is consistently growing faster than other large software companies; it climbed to position 79 in 2008 and position 75 in the current ranking.” For the current year, revenue growth at ANSYS was 25 percent, while the growth of all companies that made the list was “18 percent on average in defiance of the economic crisis,” the editor added.
“It is certainly an honor to be named among the world’s largest software companies,” said Jim Cashman, president and CEO of ANSYS, Inc. “Even in the face of a global recession and prolonged sales cycles, ANSYS has continued its steady performance. By turning the challenges of the last year into opportunities, ANSYS has maintained its decade-long focus on long-term performance.”
