This week, IDC Government Insights announced the results of its 2017 IDC Government Top 50 Vendor Rankings. These rankings use a standardized methodology to publish the estimated IT revenue of the top vendors serving the U.S. federal government. IDC examines thousands of different federal IT contracts, and then isolates the spending by fiscal year. We send our estimates to the companies for their consideration and potential feedback.

These numbers focus strictly on estimated revenue from the sale of hardware, software and IT services. The numbers do not include things like staffing costs, business process engineering, or other non-IT spending. This approach is unique to IDC. It makes our numbers lower than what can be seen on other government top IT vendor lists, but we believe this approach is a better measure of what is truly "addressable" IT spending by the federal government.
