New Apps Run The World Super Site – Updates and Ranks World’s 500 Biggest Cloud Applications Vendors By Revenue


Dublin, Calif. – September 21, 2015

APPS RUN THE WORLD, a leading software market research firm, today announced the update of Apps Run The World Super Site and the release of an annual study that analyzes the explosive growth of the world’s 500 largest enterprise applications vendors ranked by their Cloud subscription revenues.

Both developments will provide software buyers, vendors and investors with an indispensable research tool that puts the dynamics of the Cloud applications market into sharper focus. Updated annually, the rankings in the study are based on 2011-2014 Cloud subscription revenues of more than 3,000 enterprise applications vendors in its proprietary database.

According to the study, the Cloud applications market, which covers more than 10 functional areas like ERP, Financial Management and HCM as well as 21 verticals like Banking and Financial Services, Healthcare and Insurance industry-specific applications, is projected to reach $73 billion in Cloud subscription revenues by 2019, compared with $38.5 billion in 2014. Its compound annual growth rate of 13.7% through the forecast period stands in sharp contrast to the conventional on-premise software market, which is expected to decline 10% from $148 billion in 2014 to as low as $133 billion by 2019.

Since 2011, the Cloud applications market has more than doubled from $16 billion to $38.5 billion, now accounting for 20% of the overall enterprise applications space. Four years earlier, it was 10%. By 2019, Cloud applications subscription revenues could make up 35% of the total addressable market opportunity.

Of the 500+(See FAQ why) Cloud applications vendors listed on the new Super Site, more than half posted at least 27% growth rate in their Cloud subscription revenues in 2014, suggesting that above-average growth rates are widespread as many are still at an early stage of rapid expansion in terms of new bookings, recurring revenues as well as their own employees.
