Ranking 1: Microsoft: 😎 (Emperor)

Microsoft is undoubtedly the Emperor of software companies.Check out the world’s top 10 software companies ranked by annual software revenues, according to Global Software Top 100 list.

Ranking 2: IBM : 😘 😎 🙂 😆 (Employee)

For five years, IBMers have been working with companies, cities and communities around the world to build a Smarter Planet.

😎 We’ve seen enormous advances, as leaders are using an explosion of data to transform their enterprises and institutions through analytics, mobile technology, social  business and the cloud.

We’ve also seen how this new era is starting to create winners. They’re changing how their decisions are made. They’re redesigning how their teams work, reassessing how to serve their customers, and changing the very nature of business. It’s the ability to harness data that gives these leaders their competitive advantage in the era of “smart.” Today, conventions once universally held are giving way to new perspectives, new ways of working, and new solutions across industries. Roles are changing. And more than ever, leaders need a partner to help them adapt.

    Great post Hari!

    We’re looking at updating our Data Sources list, and was wondering if you would be able to provide a link for your data source!!

    The visualizations that you’ve created with SAP Lumira are great, and we’re looking forward to many more in the future.

    We’ll get your post out there on Twitter too!
    Don’t forget to follow us to stay on top of everything!

        I changed that, my apologies.
        I was hoping you would be able to give us a direct link to where you got the data for your visualizations! We can share it with everyone else.

        We’re creating a central list, so that people in the future can also use open data!

        Feel free to take a look at the list HERE

        Hi Hari,

        OMG Hari  50 Blogs already any more in pipeline?, when do you time to write such wonderful blogs. I don’t  have the kind of dedication  & the presentation skills that you possess to write such wonderful blogs.

        Thanks Sukant

          Hi Sukant,

          Thanks for your valuable comments. I always use to write blogs after 9 PM to 1 AM. I feel thats the right time to think. No one will disturb me, I use to think and write.

          Most of my blogs are useful for freshers. I feel like that.

          Before we exit from this world, we do share or do something for others! Thats my main motive.

          I appreciate. Once again thank you so much!

            Well couldn’t control myself on commenting on this.

            “Before we exit from this world, we do share or do something for others! That’s  my main motive.”

            Loved this Line of yours, very few people think the way you do.

            Keep up the good work Buddy. 🙂

            Best of Luck. 🙂
