CNews Top 100: Russia’s biggest IT companies

Summing up 2005

The leading positions changed little. The top three are Merlion, NCC, and IBS. Lanit came fourth, showing a 50% growth and moving R-Style and TechnoServ A/S further down. Two more companies entered the top 10: Ultra Electronic, who for the first time presented its data to CNews Analytics and Kvazar Micro, formerly Ukraine's biggest integrator bought by AFK Sistema in 2005.

There is also a number of newcomers, such as Netlab (16), INLINE Group (31), Fun (32), and Stack (35). All four had a dynamic growth in receipts by tens of percents.

Unfortunately, some companies refused to provide information on receipts and are not mentioned in the rating. These are usually companies with low sales volumes. Here are the biggest of them: CBOSS and Alion, who took 11th and 12th places in 2004, Alliance Marketing Group (16th place), RRC (21st place), and Rover Computers (24th place). The full list of companies not included in Top100 2005 is listed below.

The lower limit of company's receipts in the top 100 increased by 97% since 2004, i.e. from 115 mln rubles in 2004 to 227 mln rubles in 2005. This reflects the positive trend of the Russian IT-market. The situation would be much the same in 2006, experts say.
