Computer software is a programming code executed on a computer processor. The code is a machine-level code or a code written for an operating system. An operating system is software intended to provide a predictable and dependable layer for other programmers to build other software on, which are known as applications. It also provides a dependable layer for hardware manufacturers.
This standardization creates an efficient environment for programmers to create smaller programs, which can be run by millions of computers. Software can also be thought of as an expression that contrasts with hardware. The physical components of a computer are the hardware and the digital programs running on the hardware are the software. Software is much easier to update or replace than the hardware. Additionally, software can be distributed to a number of hardware receivers. Basically, software is the computer logic used to interact with the users.
COVID-19 Scenario Analysis:
The computer software market faces significant weaknesses now during the COVID-19 pandemic, due to the fall in the economy, as a lot of companies are forced to ask their employees to work-from-home (remotely), keeping in account of the public health concerns. Due to this, there is a massive loss in opportunity for many companies that have international dealers.
Demand surged thanks to the shift towards home working, but the PC industry is still recovering from Intel chip supply issues. Moreover, the Chinese factories closed and remained shuttered for weeks during the early stages of the pandemic, this further affected the global supply chains.
The slowdown in supply met with accelerated demand, as businesses were suddenly forced to equip a new remote workforce, placing urgent orders for tens of thousands of PCs.
The pandemic led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges.
