Synopsis: Provides a systematic and quantitative analysis of the development of the software industry, drawing on an economic analysis of technological change and market structure and on the management style of innovative activities at the firm level. The volume includes analysis of exhaustive surveys, conducted between 1990 and 1997, of firms involved in software industries. The volume also compares the historical evolution of software activities in Europe and in the US and explains the differences in specialization and performance in terms of the geographical proximity to leading hardware manufacturers, the size of the domestic market, regulation, and public policies.

Book Description Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 1998. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This important book provides a systematic and quantitative analysis of the development of the software industry: the major growth industry in advanced economies of the world. It presents the results of a comprehensive set of industry surveys to shed light on the differences in specialization and performance of US and European software firms. Salvatore Torrisi analyses the development of the software industry within the context of theories of technical change. He interprets exhaustive surveys of firms participating in software industries conducted between 1990 and 1997. These reveal the main characteristics of innovation activities in software, including the characteristics of product and process innovations, the sources of technological change within firms, the instruments for the protection of innovation and the nature of innovative skills. The author also compares the historical evolution of software activities in Europe and in the United States and explains the differences in specialization and performance in terms of the geographical proximity to leading hardware manufacturers, the size of the domestic market, regulation and public policies, including property rights and anti-trust. This unparalleled book will be required reading for academics interested in industrial organisation and the economics of innovation. Seller Inventory # AAJ9781858988948
