About the Gartner Market Share Methodology

Total software revenue is a more-accurate measure to reveal long-term trends in the industry and also for capturing a clearer size of the revenue spending for software products over time. Evolving software markets are more-accurately represented and compared by using a long-term indicator, rather than a short-term one.

Gartner defines total software revenue as revenue generated from new license, updates, subscriptions and hosting, technical support and maintenance. Professional services and hardware revenue are not included in total software revenue.
