SD Times acknowledged Macrovision for its leadership in the software industry, along with other prominent global companies BEA, IBM, Novell, Oracle, and Sun.

"Each year, SD Times carefully considers each organization's products and services, reputation with development managers, and the new ideas and thought leadership that it has brought to the industry. Macrovision has clearly become a leading player in the software industry by offering cutting-edge Software Value Management solutions to both software publishers and their customers."

"Macrovision is focused on helping the software industry make the shift to value-based business models, in which every aspect of the post-development delivery, maintenance and use of software can be optimized for maximum value by both software publishers and enterprises," said Dan Stickel, executive vice president and general manager of Macrovision's Software Technologies Division.
