Tyler Technologies, perhaps the single largest state and local government tech vendor in the U.S., has just hit a big milestone: In 2019, the company topped $1 billion in revenue for the first time.

The company's history is largely defined by its acquisitions. Though it has existed in one form or another since 1966, Tyler really got into the government tech market in February 1998 when it acquired three companies in the space — Business Resources Corporation, The Software Group Inc., and Interactive Computer Designs.

Since then, the company has grown until it found itself with a hand in many, many areas of government work. Tyler Technologies has software for enterprise resource planning, courts and public safety, permitting and land use, education, fleet management and more.

Focusing on just the past two decades, here is Tyler Technologies' journey to $1 billion.

And here is a table of all acquisitions Tyler reported in its SEC filings during that time period:
