Businessweek Infotech 100 : Surprises Galore

The 2006 Businessweek Infotech 100 ranking makes interesting reading: The list factors companies rank on four criteria: return on equity, shareholder return and revenue growth (which were given equal weight), and total revenues (which was weighted). For those trying to understand offshore players, the list gives some basis for understanding.
Of the Indian headquartered service providers, the rankings make an interesting reading (the ranking of these majors have changed over the previous year)

- Tata Consultancy Services ( Rank 34)
- Infosys Technologies (Rank 42)
- Satyam Computer Services (Rank 48)
- Wipro (Rank 57)

The other well known offshore services player also finds a place in the list:

- Cognizant Technology Solutions (Rank 84)

Of the already well established consulting majors, two find a place in the list

- Accenture (Rank 14)
- Cap Gemini(Rank 72)

While most of the technology majors find a place in the list –(Apple(4), Microsoft(37), SAP(39), HP(44), Oracle(51), Yahoo(56)), I was surprised to note that IBM & EDS do not find a place in the top 100!!. I must also say that the methodology seems to be quite number centric( while the company specific details are reasonably elaborate) & should be seen in that light. I am also wondering when we shall be getting to see something like a J.D.Power rating for the IT consulting majors service offerings – time for it considering that consulting and services revenues/marketcap are more than the GDP of several nations.
