The study, the industry's first holistic assessment of today's leading tech companies, uses a 28-point data-driven algorithm to objectively identify organizations with the fortitude for the future in today's complex business environment. The patent pending methodology, developed by the Thomson Reuters Boston Innovation Lab , is based on eight principle pillars of performance: Financial, Management and Investor Confidence, Risk and Resilience, Legal Compliance, Innovation, People and Social Responsibility, Environmental Impact, and Reputation. These companies are those whose final scores across the pillars outshine over 5,000 other technology companies around the world.

"Through our dedication to providing the most advanced technologies and solutions to U.S. defense, intelligence and federal civilian customers, ManTech is widely recognized for our role in 'securing the future' of this country, and as the employer of choice for top technical talent dedicated to supporting customers' missions," said Kevin Phillips, ManTech President and CEO.  "We are honored to be recognized for our ability to apply advanced technologies and innovation for our customers, and to carry forward a high level of operational and financial performance as we have done for 50 years - all while adhering to core values of ethics, compliance, risk management, and social responsibility."

 "Tech companies operate at warp speed confronting competitive, regulatory, legal, financial, supply chain and myriad other business challenges. Oftentimes, their financial success overshadows operational integrity, making it difficult to identify those organizations with true fortitude for future success," said Alex Paladino, global managing director of the Thomson Reuters Technology Practice Group. "With the Top 100 Global Tech Leaders, we've identified the unique data points that embody technology industry leadership in the 21 st century; congratulations to the companies that made the list."

Key Findings among the 2018 Top 100 Global Technology Leaders:
  • In addition to being recognized as the first, true valuation of global technology leaders, these organizations outperform the Nasdaq, S&P 500 and MSCI World indices in year-over-year stock price change by 3.91 percent, 4.04 percent and 7.1 percent respectively. 
  • The companies outperform these indices across other factors including YOY R&D investment, employee percent change and revenue percent change.
