The Biggest Enterprise Needle Movers
A total of six companies grew their annual enterprise revenue by at least $16 billion from 2009 to 2019 with no plans of slowing down growth over the next 10 years.
According to new data by Synergy Research Group, six IT vendors collectively drove a whopping $180 billion in new enterprise sales over the past ten years. John Dinsdale, a chief analyst at Synergy Research Group, spoke to CRN about the six companies who are leading the world in terms of enterprise sales growth.
“There has been a radical change in the enterprise over the decade,” said Dinsdale. “Remember in 2009 when Amazon and Google were barely present in the enterprise, Salesforce was still in its early days and Microsoft’s enterprise sales were only a small fraction of what they are today?”
The main market segments that supported enterprise growth were cloud infrastructure services and software-as-a-service, followed by unified communication, Ethernet switching and servers. Synergy’s research covers sales to enterprises and service providers, which excludes consumer and devices revenue such as mobile phones and PCs.
Here are the top six IT vendors who moved the needle the furthest in enterprise sales over the last decade.
