Newtown, PA – September 10, 2014 – EPAM (NYSE: EPAM), a leading provider of product development and software engineering solutions, today announces its inclusion in Software Magazine’s Software 500 ranking of the world’s largest software and service providers, now in its 32nd year.
EPAM was ranked 131 on the list, with a total software and services revenue of $555 million in 2013. Following the company’s impressive growth in 2013, EPAM has moved up 29 places since the 2012 Software 500 ranking, making it one of the fastest-growing software solutions and services providers in Central and Eastern Europe. EPAM’s focus is placed on reinforcing its major business domains, strengthening its pool of engineering talent, and addressing its customers’ most complex problems, resulting in solid client trust and satisfaction, and consequently, continued inclusion in the ranks of global industry leaders.
“Being listed in the Software 500 is a strong endorsement of our business model and enormous engineering capabilities in our key industries: Banking and Financial Services, ISVs and Technology, Retail and CPG, Travel and Hospitality, and Media, Entertainment and Publishing,” says Arkadiy Dobkin, EPAM CEO and President. “We remain committed to helping our clients be highly competitive in the marketplace, and creating immense value with state-of-the-art solutions that meet varying customer needs across geographies.”
“The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers, and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners,” says John P. Desmond, editor. “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 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 ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue from the 2013 fiscal year. This includes revenue from software licenses, maintenance and support, training, and software-related services, and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware.

It is published in print as well as posted online at www.softwaremag.com as both a digital edition and a searchable database.
