• CONCLUSION
CONCEPT OF SOFTWARE
• System software allows the user to run computer software
or hardware and is responsible for managing their
interaction with each other.
• It perpetually runs in the background to maintain the basic
functionalities and the hardware of the computer.
• It essentially acts as a mediator between the computer and
the user to facilitate operations.
WHY NEED OF SOFTWARE?
• Software is needed for a variety of reasons, including:
1.Automation: Software can automate repetitive and mundane
tasks, allowing users to focus on more complex and strategic
work.
2.Efficiency: Software can increase efficiency by streamlining
workflows, reducing errors, and improving accuracy.
3.Scalability: Software can be designed to handle large
volumes of data and users, making it easier to scale as a
business grows.
4. Innovation: Software can enable new products and services
that were previously impossible or difficult to achieve.
5. Communication: Software can facilitate communication and
collaboration among team members and with customers,
partners, and suppliers.
6. Decision-making: Software can provide data insights and
analytics to support informed decision-making.
MEANING OF SOFTWARE.
• Software is a set of instructions, data or programs used to
operate computers and execute specific tasks.
• It is the opposite of hardware, which describes the physical
aspects of a computer.
• Software is a generic term used to refer to applications,
scripts and programs that run on a device.
• It can be thought of as the variable part of a computer, while
hardware is the invariable part.

  • 6. MEANING OF SOFTWARE. • Software is a set of instructions, data or programs used to operate computers and execute specific tasks. • It is the opposite of hardware, which describes the physical aspects of a computer. • Software is a generic term used to refer to applications, scripts and programs that run on a device. • It can be thought of as the variable part of a computer, while hardware is the invariable part.
  • 7. TYPES OF SOFTWARE • SYSTEM SOFTWARE • APPLICATION SOFTWARE • PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE • OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE
  • 8. SYSTEM SOFTWARE • System software allows the user to run computer software or hardware and is responsible for managing their interaction with each other. • It perpetually runs in the background to maintain the basic functionalities and the hardware of the computer. • It essentially acts as a mediator between the computer and the user to facilitate operations. System software is of four types, which are as follows-
  • 9. • Operating System – The operating system is a collection of software that helps execute programs and offers a computer application’s general services. There are various types of operating systems, such as iOS, macOS, Windows, Unix, Linux, and Ubuntu, among others. • Device Drivers – Device drivers handle the operations of the hardware devices connected to a computer. They act as a software interface for the hardware devices so that applications and the operating system of a computer can run the hardware functions without having the knowledge of the hardware’s exact specifications. • Firmware – Firmware is embedded in the read-only memory of a system and is a type of permanent software that offers low-level control for certain device hardware. • Utility – Utility software functions to configure, maintain, and offer support in the analysis and optimization of the computer.
  • 10. APPLICATION SOFTWARE • Application software or application programs are end-user programs that serve specific functionality to help users accomplish certain tasks. • This includes graphic designing, researching online, drafting documents, watching movies or playing games, and managing finance among others. • Developers keep creating software applications based on the evolving needs of users. • There are various types of application software, which are as follows-
  • 11. • Word Processors – Word processor software, as the name suggests, is designed for making notes, typing data, and documentation. Users can also format, store, and print their data and documents respectively using word processes. • Database Software – Also known as Database Management System (DBMS), database software allows users to perform various operations on quickly retrieved data, such as creation, management, organization, and modification. Some popular examples of DBMS are MS Access, dBase, MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and FileMaker. • Multimedia Software – Users can perform certain actions on their computer, such as playing and recording music and video files as well as creating images with the help of multimedia software. This type of software has a massive application in the field of graphic designing where users create gifs, images, animations, and edit videos. Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Windows Movie Maker and Media Player, Corel Draw, and Picasa are some common types of multimedia processors.
  • 12. • Web Browsers – Web Browsers are used for browsing the internet and their primary function is to allow users to fetch data across the web and also position the data. In simpler terms, you would access the internet with the help of web browsers so that you find the information that you need. Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, and UC Browser are very commonly used web browsers. • Freeware – Freeware software is made available free of cost for a lifetime and it can be downloaded from the internet. This type of software is generally created by companies to improve their reach and gain more popularity. Some such software that is available free of cost for different purposes are Skype, Audacity, Zoom, Adobe Reader, WhatsApp, etc.
  • 13. PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE • Proprietary software is owned by an organization or an individual, as opposed to “public-domain software,” which is freely distributed. • The explosion in the use of the Internet has expanded the reach of public-domain software since it is now much easier to transmit these programs. While many commercial software developers have developed software that has become the de facto standard (e.g., Microsoft’s Windows programs), proprietary software that is based on proprietary protocols, or standards, can create obstacles for application development and usage.
  • 14. OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE • Open-source software is the opposite of commercial ones as it can be downloaded from the internet along with its source code. • Since users can download the source code of the software as well, they can work on the codes and make changes to the software. • While some open-source software might be free of cost, some may also be sold at retail prices.
  • 15. CONCLUSION It is crucial to have a good understanding of software, its types, how it works, and other aspects pertaining to it for developers and other experts who maintain software. While hardware is extremely important, the software of a system is designed to execute commands and provide users with output. Without software, it is virtually impossible to use your system.
