HRchitect featured Kenexa in our May 2008 release of The Suite Life of Integrated Talent Management.
Kenexa (NASDAQ: KNXA), a global provider of talent management and retention solutions, this week announced its inclusion on the Software Magazine’s Software 500 ranking of the world’s largest software and service providers, now in its 26th year.
Kenexa was ranked No. 158, moving up from its previously held position of No. 278 in 2007, with software revenue of $181.9 million.
“The 2008 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $451.8 billion worldwide for 2007 representing 14.7% growth from the previous year,” says John P Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com “We have added over 100 new companies to the list this year. We’re seeing strong growth from more companies based outside the U.S., especially from systems integration and outsourcing services firms based in India.”
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 2007. 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.
