Thomas Reuters has published its debut Top 100 Global Technology Leaders list, naming Microsoft in the number one spot, followed by Intel and Cisco.

The list uses a methodology that analyses 28 factors across eight key performance criteria to determine the placement of each technology leader.

These include; management & investor confidence; legal compliance; financial performance; innovation; risk & resilience; people & social responsibility; reputation; and environmental impact.

“Applying the intelligence, technology, and human expertise of Thomson Reuters, we have identified industry leaders poised to thrive at the intersection of regulation and commerce,” Thomas Reuters said. “The result is the Thomson Reuters Top 100 Global Tech Leaders.”

Alongside Microsoft, Intel and Cisco, the other firms that make the top 10 are Apple, Alphabet, IBM, Texas Instruments, TSMC, SAP and Accenture.

Both Facebook and Amazon did not place in the top 10, but both featured amongst the remaining 90 firms that were not specifically ranked.

“According to the list, 45 percent of these 100 tech companies are headquartered in the United States. Japan and Taiwan are tied for second place with 13 companies each, followed by India with five tech leaders on the list,” Reuters said.

“By continent, North America leads with 47, followed by Asia with 38, Europe with 14 and Australia with one.”
