LARKSPUR, Calif., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Mindjet, a leading provider of
software for visualizing and managing information, today announced its
inclusion on the Software 500, Software Magazine's list of the world's
foremost software and services providers. The list is published as an online
catalog on www.Softwaremag.com. Mindjet was ranked 374th this year, reflecting
revenue growth of 175% since the company was first listed in the Software 500
"Mindjet's MindManager software excels at helping business professionals
and teams plan, organize and manage information-based activities," says
Mindjet CEO Robert Gordon. "Our customers find that when using MindManager,
decisions are made more quickly, meeting times are decreased, and project
planning is greatly improved -- and there is an actual improvement in the way
people work. The almost immediate productivity gains our software delivers
accounts for Mindjet's continued success, as reflected in our continued rise
in the Software 500 ranking."
The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world's largest
software and services suppliers targeting enterprise IT organizations. The
list includes both private and public companies; 30% of the 2004 Software 500
companies are privately held. The Software 500 is a worldwide list in that any
company may submit financial and product information via the annual Software
500 survey, conducted 100% on the Web.
"The software industry remains extremely dynamic, with 140 new companies
appearing on the 2004 Software 500 list. Overall results were mixed, but total
revenue for the 500 was up 14% and total employment up 8%," says John P.
Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com. "Sectors strong this
year include security, business-process management and system integration
services, including outsourcing services."
The ranking is based on total worldwide software and service revenue for
2003. 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.
