How Vendors Are Ranked

The 2016 Federal IT Rankings categorize and evaluate technology providers based on calendar year revenues from government institutions for hardware, software, and/or IT services.

Two categories of companies are ranked:

  1. Federal IT Rankings: Top 100 – vendors that derive more than one-third of their revenue from government institutions.
  2. Federal IT Rankings: Enterprise 25 – enterprise companies serving multiple industries that derive less than one-third of their revenues from government institutions

NOTE: Revenue from sales of telecommunications, electronic exchanges, and data services are EXCLUDED. Survey respondents that derive revenue from excluded technology categories (e.g. market data providers) will be considered for these rankings only if they have revenue tied to applicable revenue categories. For such survey respondents, the revenue attributed to excluded technology categories will be used to qualify the data providers to meet the one-third participation hurdle for the Federal IT Rankings, but only the qualifying portion of hardware, software, and IT services revenue will be included in the final ranking revenue evaluation.


For questions regarding the 2016 Federal IT Rankings, please contact Shawn McCarthy, Research Director, IDC Government Insights.

"The Federal government today has its choice from literally hundreds of IT solution providers. But finding the key players in this market can be a challenge. The IDC Government Insights Federal IT Rankings is an ongoing endeavor to establish a solid industry standard that assists both government IT managers and IT suppliers in their efforts to make the best choice for their institutions."
