The Top Ten Software Companies in India

Today the software industry has become the backbone of companies around the world. With technology advancing in leaps and bounds, there is no stopping IT professionals from around the world to bridge the gap between huge untapped markets and its customers, as well as creating an opportunity for innovation.

The companies that dominate the software industry are those which look out for these opportunities and provide instant solutions. The Indian software industry has arrived, and the companies that are dominating this industry, based on their turnovers, are:

Rank Names Sales 
(in Rs mill)
1 TCS LIMITED 97,272
2 WIPRO LIMITED 82,330
3 INFOSYS TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED 71,297
4 SATYAM COMPUTER SERVICES LIMITED 35,209
5 I-FLEX SOLUTIONS LIMITED 11,386
6 TATA INFOTECH LIMITED 9,743
7 CMC LIMITED 8,074
8 MPHASIS BFL LIMITED 7,657
9 MASTEK LIMITED 5,670
10 NIIT LIMITED

3,984

 

These companies have one thing in common; they offer a variety of services. These services range from consultancy services to Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) units to customized solutions in the IT domain.

With TCS Ltd featuring in lots of major deals during the year 2005, it will probably continue with its favored status and dominance over the software industry in India. Though when it comes to the most respected company of India, among the pool of all industries, it is no real surprise that Infosys Technologies Limited is number one, with its reputed work ethic and social responsibility factor.

TCS is the largest software services company in Asia, ahead of other Indian software service providers like Infosys and Wipro. Earlier, it became the first Indian software company to cross the coveted US$ 1 billion revenue mark. The company has a wide range of offerings and caters to industries like banking, insurance and financial services (41% of revenues), manufacturing (17%), telecom, (15%) and retail (7%). TCS was one of the pioneers of the much-acclaimed global delivery model and the same has helped it to post good results in the past and will help with future achievements as well.

The software industry has become a part of everyday life, be it providing solutions for business or entertainment. Ample opportunity does not ensure that the companies listed in the top ten will remain there as tough competition from the ever-increasing number of software companies can completely alter the list. There are organizations like Visualsoft Techonologies Limited, Tata Elxis Limited and Geometric Software Solutions Co. Ltd waiting in the wings. The key to survival in this industry is providing solutions a click away and creating and inventing products before someone else does.

The Android juggernaut is unstoppable: Accenture research

Based in Ireland, Accenture is one of the largest consulting firms in the world. From time to time, the company releases studies or surveys focusing on technology market and mobile computing, offering precious insights into the evolution of the complex world of technology.

One of Accenture’s most recent presentations took place at MWC (Mobile World Congress) and focused on Android’s growth rate compared to Apple’s progress over the past few years.

I know what you’re thinking, MWC concluded more than a month ago, so why is this guy bringing us such old raggedy news? Well, we here at Android Authority felt it was necessary to let you know that things aren’t as dark and gloomy.

Back at the MWC, Accenture mobility analyst Lars Kamp presented several interesting charts that speak volumes on the evolution of our favorite mobile operating system. Due to lack of space and my reluctance to bore you with too much statistical data, I am only going to focus on three of those charts.

First of all, what we have below is the shares in the total smartphone market, which, as you can see, has been dominated by Android ever since 2010. Google’s operating system runs on half of today’s smartphones, while Apple’s iOS only powers about 30% of worldwide devices.

One million Apple IDs leaked online, hackers claim

The group AntiSec also claims to have access to more than 12 million other IDs, which it has not released, as well as account holders’ personal information.

The personal information is said to include user names, device names, telephone numbers and addresses.

According to experts this information could be handed to spammers and potentially used to infect computers and steal credit card details.

In a statement published online the group said that it had published the information to bring attention to the FBI apparently using the details to track Americans.

While the personal information has not been releaseed, the hackers claim that a significant number of users will be able to search for their device, using their Apple device ID.

The statement said that the laptop “was breached using the AtomicReferenceArray vulnerability on Java. During the shell session some files were downloaded from his Desktop folder.”

“One of them with the name of ”NCFTA_iOS_devices_intel.csv” turned to be a list of 12,367,232 Apple iOS devices including Unique Device Identifiers (UDID), user names, name of device, type of device, Apple Push Notification Service tokens, zipcodes, cellphone numbers, addresses, etc.”

Graham Cluley, a computer security expert at Sophos said that the hackers may have chosen not to release personal information, to make it more valuable to criminals.

“That is obviously information that has a real value. It could be abused in several ways. By publicising the Apple ID details what they are doing is saying we have got all this data- we can prove that we have got it and Apple can test whether these device numbers are correct or not.

“They probably either want to exploit [the details] themselves or they might for instance want to sell it on the computer underground to spammers who can send a targeted campaign to those email addresses.”

“Maybe it would be claiming to come from Apple, maybe it would contain malicious links or be designed to infect people’s computers and potentially steal information such as credit card details “

AntiSec, or the Anti Security Movement, is opposed to the computer security industry. Experts say that hacking is a worldwide problem and has become much more visible in the last couple of years, because of the rise of so-called ‘hacktivism’

This mixture of hacking and activism is designed to discredit and embarrass large scale organisations.

AntiSec said it will not provide further statements until a photo of a writer at a US-based gossip website is featured on the site’s front page dressed in a tutu. Adrian Chen is a writer at Gawker who has criticised hacking groups in the past.Hackers claim to have leaked 1m Apple device IDs obtained from an FBI computer

Apple declined to comment.
