Lawrenceville, NJ — October 30, 2006 — EPAM Systems, the leading Software Engineering Outsourcing provider with delivery centers in Central and Eastern Europe, has made the top 300 of the Software 500, Software Magazine's 24th annual ranking of the world's largest software and services providers.
The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers and IT staff research and shortlist business partners. The ranking is based on companies' total worldwide software and services revenue for 2005. Although the overall Software 500 results show that growth in the software and services industry was flat from 2004 to 2005, EPAM has demonstrated strong revenue growth and made a leap to the 272nd position.
"The fact that EPAM has been recognized among the world's foremost software product and services vendors for the third consecutive year and advances to a higher position year after year testifies to EPAM's maturity in delivering high quality software engineering outsourcing services," said Arkadiy Dobkin, EPAM CEO and President. "It also confirms our ability to successfully manage the company's rapid growth while consistently exceeding the expectations of our growing customer base."
