There’s no shortage of market researchers that will help business leaders evaluate tech companies. But one box score you may want to check is the second annual Booz & Company Global Information, Communications, and Technology 50 study (helpfully known as the ICT 50). The management consultant ranks the best of tech based on financial performance, portfolio strength, go-to-market capabilities, and innovation and brand recognition. Above are the top 20 companies on the list.
As a bonus, Booz identifies five companies that just missed the list: Chinese hardware manufacturers, Huawei Technologies, Lenovo, and ZTE, in addition to Salesforce.com and a rebounding Yahoo.
