SolarWinds Named to Software Magazine’s 25th Annual Software 500Software Magazine Ranks SolarWinds as one of the World’s Largest Software CompaniesAustin, TX — Oct. 16, 2007 — SolarWinds today announced its inclusion on the Software Magazine’s Software 500 ranking of the world’s largest software and service providers, now in its 25th year. SolarWinds was ranked 276th, with software revenue of $37.9 million.

“The 2007 Software 500 results show that growth in the software and services industry was healthy from 2006 to 2007, the ranking year. The industry continues to be dynamic with more than 98 new companies on the list this year for the first time,” says John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com. “The top four business sectors this year are System Integration Services/IT Consulting, Application Development, Financial Applications and Security Tools/Systems. It may be the case that the difficulty companies have in developing and keeping their own IT skilled workers, is driving demand for services firms.

“The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners,” Desmond says. “It is a quick reference of vendor viability. That is content of value.”

Some 37 percent of the 2006 Software 500 companies are privately held.

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 ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2006. This includes revenues 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.
