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 live. Moreover there is a noticeable spillover within other industries (e.g. manufacturing) enabling new business models: companies bundle their physical products and software services into solutions (e.g. using subscription models) and start to sell independent software products in addition to physical products.Software business refers to commercial activities in and around 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. Moreover recent developments like the emerging app economy offer a variety of opportunities for entrepreneurs or start-up companies.
ICSOB 2013 addresses researchers and practitioners, who are concerned with software business in different ways as well as the start-up community, which is increasingly focusing on mobile and social software.
The International Conference on Software Business (ICSOB 2013) will be held at the University of Potsdam. Its Griebnitzsee campus is located near the capital of Germany, Berlin.
