Abstract

Ratio analysis is the simplest and traditional method of performance efficiency. However, the study showed that there many limitations to ratio analysis when performance measurement is undertaken. To overcome this difficulty a nonparametric method called DEA is developed where multiple inputs and outputs can be considered to evaluate efficiency. This study has considered the Malmquist Productivity Index to measure productivity efficiency of the Indian SoftwareIndustry. The results showed that the SoftwareIndustry is consistently efficient under productivity performance. The technical efficiency component of MPI is inefficient whereas technological efficiency change is efficient under productivity performance. The hypothesis test undertaken for technical and technological efficiency difference between large and small scale companies showed that companies are producing the same level of output whereas large scale companies are more technology innovation-oriented. The further results of ratio analysis were significantly different from the Malmquist Index. This study is beneficial to understand the efficient and inefficient companies in the Software sector. The managers, shareholders would be helpful to locate inefficiencies and take a suitable initiative to improve.
