Network Automation Named to Software Magazine’s 29th Annual Software 500

Software Magazine Ranks Network Automation as one of the World’s Largest Software Companies.

Los Angeles, October 26, 2011

Network Automation, Inc. announced today its inclusion in Software Magazine’s Software 500 ranking of the world’s largest software and service providers, now in its 29th year. Network Automation, the premier provider of IT and business process automation software AutoMateTM 8, was ranked No. 490.

“The 2011 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $541.5 billion worldwide for 2010, representing approximately 10 percent growth from the previous year’s list,” said John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com.

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 27% of the 2011 Software 500 companies are privately held. More than 100 companies are on the list in 2011 for the first time, a reflection of the dynamic nature of the industry.

“We are very pleased to be among the privately held software companies entering the Software 500 List for the first time,” said Gary Bishop, CEO of Network Automation. “Our sustained growth is a strong reflection of the IT industry’s increasing interest in automation technology.”

The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2010. This includes revenue 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 www.softwaremag.com, as well as from public documents.
