[WEBINAR] The New Normal: Dealing with the Reality of an Unsecure World


Definition - What does Bolt-On mean?

Bolt-on software is software that can be easily attached to a client project, for example, a website. The term “bolt-on” is similar to the term “plug-and-play” that is used to describe pieces of software that are easily integrated into other larger systems. Some might also call these “add-ons.”

Techopedia explains Bolt-On

Bolt-on software is often talked about in enterprise resource planning. Experts might talk about “best-of-breed packaged solutions” that can be easily added onto enterprise architectures. For example, a third-party company might sell a specific payroll or accounting program that is better than what comes with a company’s default desktop package. A company can purchase the bolt-on software and easily connect it to their broader architecture for specific functionality.
