[WEBINAR] Application Acceleration: Faster Performance for End Users


Definition - What does Liteware mean?

Liteware is a type of software utility with more reduced functionality than the full and paid version and is freely distributed to end users. It allows software developers and independent software vendors (ISV) to try the lite version at no cost before purchasing the actual software.

Liteware is also known as shareware.

Techopedia explains Liteware

Liteware provides the same visual interface, icons and components of its full software counterpart. Depending on the developer or vendor, certain features may be disabled, unavailable or partially available to users. Liteware may have limited developer/vendor updates and support. Like trial software, liteware generally does not have an expiration date.

Although limited and incomplete, liteware is designed to provide sufficient functionality for full evaluation by a user prior to purchase. Once a user purchases the full version, liteware may be upgraded, unlocked or replaced by the newer version(s).
