Third International Conference on Software Business

June 18-20, 2012, MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts

http://www.icsob.org

Theme: Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the Software Business
---------------------------------------------------------------

Advancements in the software industry have had a substantial impact not only on productivity and on GDP growth globally, but also on our daily work and life. Software business refers to commercial activities in the software industry, aimed at generating income from the delivery of software products and software services. Although the software business shares common features with other international knowledge-intensive businesses, it carries many inherent features making it a challenging domain for research. In particular, software companies have to depend on one another to deliver a unique value proposition to their customers. New developments like Apps that run on pre-existing platforms have emerged as a major force and are creating what is being labeled as the App Economy.
