Research Germany - List of the Largest Software Companies in Germany

In which cities are most software companies in Germany located?

In terms of the number of software companies per city, Munich is the clear number one in Germany. There is no other city where so many software developers have their headquarters in Germany. The list of the top 7 also includes the major cities of Berlin and Hamburg. In addition, the technologically strong cities of Karlsruhe, Heidelberg, Stuttgart and Nuremberg are among the German cities with the most software companies. This is due in part to the universities there and the large technology companies in the region, which produce suppliers and spin-offs. For example, the presence of SAP makes Heidelberg an interesting location for IT companies.

Why ResearchGermany is the first port of call for high-quality industry lists and address databases

Market and competition analyses are essential for successful companies. However, in the past it was not possible to obtain high-quality and at the same time inexpensive databases of the most important companies in a sector. Address databases were often outdated or incomplete. The own research of potential leads was connected with hours of effort. At this point ResearchGermany entered the market to support you sustainably. Our experienced research team uses modern technologies and web crawlers to track down relevant players in an industry. Our databases are then manually checked and enriched with valuable information to ensure high data quality. Our data sets can be easily purchased from our online store and are available as Excel lists. Our databases include numerous sector lists of German industry, such as the list of the largest trading companies, the list of the top chemical companies or the list of the largest industrial companies. Should you not find what you are looking for on our website, we would be pleased to receive your message regarding an individual list creation.

Frequently asked questions about our list of the largest software companies in Germany

The most important questions about our list of the largest mechanical enigneering companies Germany

The companies included in the list can be found through various sources: Internet research, public registers, analysis of relevant news, investigation of relevant transactions, our extensive personal network. Hundreds of hours of detailed, high-quality research flow into each of our lists. All data points that we can enter via publicly available sources are included in our lists.

Every data point for which there is publicly available information is filled out in our lists. However, if we do not have an e-mail address or we do not know whether a company is investing in a particular area, we fill this field with an “n.a.”. In most cases we achieve a data coverage of over 90%. If you want to know the exact coverage of the list – e.g. how many e-mail addresses are available – our team will be happy to help you.

Our lists are always delivered as handy Excel files. On request we can also send you the list as a CSV file.

After purchasing the list, you can immediately download the list as an Excel file when paying by credit card or PayPal. You will also receive a download link by e-mail. Future free updates will also be sent to you by e-mail. If you pay in advance, you will receive the list after the amount has been credited to our account or you have sent us a bank transfer receipt.

We have noted the last update date in the product description at the top of the page. We update our lists regularly. Our customers receive free updates and additions to the list for at least 12 months.

Our lists contain – if publicly available – address, telephone number, e-mail addresses and management names of the listed companies. For privacy reasons, we may only include information that is publicly available or provided by the companies. If no data points are available, there is an “n.a.” in the corresponding field.

Due to the DSGVO our lists do not contain personal e-mail addresses and telephone numbers. Our lists contain publicly available contact data or contact data provided by the companies (e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, names of directors).

Our lists do not contain any personal contact data that is specifically protected by the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our lists always contain publicly accessible data points (official registers such as the Commercial Register or the Federal Gazette, Internet, company websites) or data provided voluntarily by companies and are therefore harmless.
In Germany, contact is regulated by §7 UWG. Thus, postal advertising in the B2B sector is generally permitted. Contacting by telephone is permitted if the business contact is presumably interested. This can also be accepted for e-mail contact, as long as the contact is made once and the contact is not included in newsletters without being asked.
Important note: We are not lawyers and cannot make legally binding statements. If you have any open questions, please feel free to contact us.

The companies included in the lists can be contacted in various ways – by telephone, postal letter, e-mail, networks such as LinkedIn, jointly attended trade fairs. In order to establish successful contacts, it is particularly important to work on individualized addresses tailored to the respective companies. Mass letters are rarely successful. Instead, our customers are most successful when they adapt to the companies included in our lists, obtain information and then address them in a customized manner. Another successful approach is to contact them via LinkedIn, for example, by selecting the right contact person from our list and then addressing them via a consistent starting point. Intros” that are mediated via shared contacts are also a good step towards establishing contact. Also possible: at trade fairs visited together, you can use the trade fair lists to search specifically for companies included in the lists and make appointments for meetings.
In general: the more effort is put into the individual approach, the more successful it is. Think about what suitable starting points are, how you can deliver added value and show the addressed companies that you put a lot of effort into the contact. Many of our customers have already built up valuable and successful business relationships.

    The list provides a great overview of the largest software companies in Germany. Since the banking software sector is of most interest to me, I very much welcome the filter option. The entries are all of very high quality and very well presented.
