Research and Markets: 2012 Report on the $250 Billion US Computer Software Market Featuring Microsoft, Oracle, IBM Software, Symantec, and Cognizant
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2zqm2f/computer_software)
has announced the addition of the "Computer
Software" report to their offering.
The US computer software industry involves about 60,000 companies with
combined annual revenue of about $250 billion. About 60 percent of
industry revenue comes from software publishing; custom programming
accounts for the remainder. Large companies include Microsoft, Oracle,
IBM Software, Symantec, and Cognizant (News - Alert) Technology Solutions. The US
packaged software segment is concentrated: the 50 largest companies
generate about 70 percent of revenue. The US custom programming segment
is highly fragmented.
A significant majority of computer software is developed ovrseas,
particularly in fast-growing countries throughout the Asia/Pacific
region. Major companies based outside the US include Nintendo (Japan),
Infosys (News - Alert) Technologies (India), and SAP (Germany).
The US economy heavily influences business spending for software
products. The success of programming companies depends heavily on strong
technical expertise. The success of packaged-software companies depends
on technical expertise and good marketing. Small software companies
compete mainly by developing packaged products in small niches or
producing custom products for individuals. Many small companies form
alliances with larger ones to market their products.
The packaged software industry is capital-intensive: average annual
revenue per worker is about $560,000.
Products, Operations & Technology:
Packaged software products are generally programs that can be installed
and operated by the customer with little or no assistance, such as an
operating system. Custom programming either creates a new software
product from scratch, or, more typically, customizes an existing
software product for customer use.
