Thomson Reuters names Top 100 tech companies

Thomson Reuters has unveiled what it claims to be the world’s 100 leading technology companies in its inaugural Top 100 Global Technology Leaders listing, a program that identifies the industry’s most operationally sound and financially successful organisations.

Based on a proprietary methodology that holistically assesses organisations to determine those at the forefront of the industry, the list honours companies that have demonstrated a commitment to leadership across eight pillars of performance: Financial; Management and Investor Confidence; Risk and Resilience; Legal Compliance; Innovation; People and Social Responsibility; Environmental Impact; and Reputation. The Top 100 Global Technology Leaders are those whose final scores across the pillars outshine over 5000 other technology companies around the world.

“Tech companies operate at warp speed confronting competitive, regulatory, legal, financial, supply chain and myriad other business challenges,” said Alex Paladino, global managing director of the Thomson Reuters Technology Practice Group. “Oftentimes, their financial success overshadows their operational integrity, making it difficult to identify those organisations with true longevity for the future.

“With the Top 100 Global Tech Leaders, we’ve identified the unique data points that embody technology industry leadership in the 21st century; congratulations to the companies that made the list.”

The leading organisations include bellwethers such as Alphabet, Amazon, Apple and Microsoft as well as newer tech entrants like HPE, Nvidia, Symantec and VMware. Global electronics manufacturer STMicroelectronics, Europe’s largest semiconductor chip maker based on revenue, was also on the list.

The Top 10 companies have been reported as follows:

  • Microsoft (US)
  • Intel (US)
  • Cisco (US)
  • IBM (US)
  • Alphabet (US)
  • Apple (US)
  • Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (Taiwan)
  • SAP (Germany)
  • Texas Instruments (US)
  • Accenture (Ireland)

“The Top 100 Global Technology Leaders are the organisations poised to propel the future of technology,” said Brian Scanlon, chief strategy officer at Thomson Reuters. “We salute them.”
