Systems vs Software

 , October 24, 2016
Systems, or Information Systems, is a common term that organizations use for software. Technically speaking, a system is software that provides services to other software. The term system is often used to denote the complexity of software that is commonly used by organizations.
Software is a generic term for any computer code. This includes relatively simplistic software such as mobile device apps that might be written by a single developer up to the most complex systems implemented by organizations and governments.
