There are two main types of computer software that all computers require to function - system software and application software. System software is the initial software that makes up the underlying functioning of a computer, and provides a platform for applications software to run on. Application software allows computer users to perform tasks and run programs, and could be considered secondary software that builds on primary system software.

System software is the backbone of any computer. It consists of all the files and programs that work to make your computer operate as a computer. System software is automatically provided when you purchase a computer on the high street, and is installed along with the operating system. Providers of system software include Windows and Apple Mac. These offer regular updates which can be installed for free as they become available. Examples of system software include assemblers, system utilities, tools and debuggers.

Application software utilizes the technology provided by system software to allow specific programs to run on a computer. To put it in simple terms, if system software could be considered to be a college timetable, application software could be considered the classes which are incorporated into the timetable. For instance, spreadsheets, word processors and graph templates are all types of application software. Some types of application software are readily installed when you buy a pc. Others will need to be manually installed, through disc or download. There is a limit to how much application software a computer can hold, which depends upon the memory capacity of the computer. What's more, having a large quantity of application software programs installed can slow a computer down. System and application software works closely together to make the modern computer function quickly and effectively; regularly technological improvements ensure the quality of both software types is constantly improving.

2. Application Software - software used to perform general purpose task such as word processing software which are used to prepare the next document

Thankfully, a consultant salesforce freelance is a way to go if you can't handle development on your own. They develop various software which can be useful for any enterprise.
