TIBCO Software Inc. [NASDAQ: TIBX] today announced that it was ranked as one of the world's largest software and service providers as part of Software Magazine's annual Software 500 list.

Year to date, TIBCO revenues are up 20% and operating margins continue to expand. In Q2, shares jumped 11 percent and have returned 85 percent during the past 12 months, outperforming the S&P 500 Index by nearly 70 percentage points.

"The 2010 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $491.7B billion worldwide for 2009, representing virtually flat growth from the previous year," says 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.

"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. And the online version, to be posted soon at www.Softwaremag.com, is searchable by category, making it what we call the online catalog to enterprise software."

The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2009. 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.
