Many lists exist that provide an overview of large software companies, often called "independent software vendors" ("ISVs"), in the world. The lists differ by methodology of composition and consequently show substantial differences in both listed companies and ranking of those companies.

Legend[edit]

FY Company's current fiscal year
Market cap Market capitalization as of February 2017 in USD billion

Forbes Global 2000[edit]

The Forbes Global 2000 is an annual ranking of the top 2000 public companies in the world by Forbes magazine, based on a mix of four metrics: sales, profit, assets and market value. The Forbes list for software companies includes only pure play (or nearly pure play) software companies and excludes manufacturers, consumer electronics companies, conglomerates, IT consulting firms, and computer services companies even if they have large software divisions.

The top 43 companies in terms of market capitalization in the 2019 Forbes list[needs update] for the "Software & Programming" industry are listed in the following table:[1]
