The Publishing Industries sector includes establishments that print, publish, and distribute books, magazines, directories, and software. These establishments are called publishers. They issue copies of works for which they have copyright, which may be in traditional print form or proprietary electronic networks. They may also publish original works created in-house, or works for which they have obtained rights from a third party. Services & Software is included in this category due to its similarity to other intellectual products.
The workforce of software publishing establishments is relatively young. The average age range of software publishers is 25 to 44 years old. This rapid growth has created opportunities for young workers with technical skills. As a result, employment growth in this sector should be strong. Further, job opportunities should be good as the demand for software will continue to increase. In addition to a steady stream of jobs in the software industry, publishers will enjoy great job opportunities.
As information technology continues to evolve and become a more crucial part of our daily lives, there will be an increasing demand for software publishing services. Organizations and individuals alike will invest in software to increase their productivity, maximize the return on their investment, and remain competitive. However, the publishing industry will be affected by the broader impact of these changes. The industry will need to provide software that can serve the needs of businesses and individuals alike.
Software as a service is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. SaaS is also known as “on-demand software” and Web-based/Web-hosted software.
