Application Software


The application software industry includes companies that engage in the production of various products and services, including personal computer operating systems, office productivity suites, network security applications and payroll processing services. The industry is highly competitive: software companies compete on factors like price, performance quality and convenience. Although software products have robust demand, the software industry is slightly more cyclical than industries like health care and utilities. Despite this, the fact that information technology plays a key role in the daily lives of business gives some cushion during market downturns. Companies in this industry include Microsoft Corp. (MSFT), Oracle Corp. (ORCL), International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) and Accenture PLC (ACN).
