In the last decade, enterprise IT revenue was more than $200 billion. The revenue was generated by just eight organizations and they have been dubbed as mega-vendors of the decade by a notable analyst firm. Microsoft stood out from its rivals and they had generated over $50 billion in the channel and retail sales. This revenue was taken into account after any sales made from 2009 and Amazon is behind Microsoft at over $30 billion. Figures revealed by Synergy Research Group showed that the eight players in the mix increased their annual revenue by over $10 billion in the last decade. Salesforce, Dell, Cisco, and Huawei were also part of the list. Adobe and Google were described to be achieving exponential growth but they did not surpass $10 billion. Synergy stated that the figures don’t represent ranking but it showed who contributed the most for the market’s growth. The analyst firm was startled from the growth because it was unrecognizable when compared to 2009.
John Dinsdale, Synergy’s chief analyst stated that ten years ago Google and Amazon did not have any significant presence in the enterprise sector and Salesforce was just starting out but now in 2019 collectively the three companies are responsible for $60 billion in revenue.
