Europe’s largest technology companies

This year the European technological leadership goes hand in hand with SAP, whose acronym represents Systems, Applications and Products, with 111.29 in market capitalization and in assets 44.28 expressed in billions of euros. Followed with a considerable distance by Deutsche Telekom and Accenture with a very even stock market capitalization of 74.66 and 70.52 respectively.

At first glance we can see how the top 3 is led by the technology sector, unlike the top 10 that the balance is more toward the Communications sector.

Unlike other continents, one could say that Europe is a more scary country as far as innovation is concerned. The high unemployment rate, such as the rigidity of the labor market in countries such as Spain and Italy, is nothing more than impediments to favor innovation and entrepreneurship.

Next, we expose the largest technology companies in Europe, (the data are in billions of EUROS), ordered by their stock market cap as of March 30, 2017 and their total assets as of December 31, 2016:
