Application Stack

Definition - What does Application Stack mean?

An application stack is a suite or set of application programs that help in performing a certain task. These applications are closely linked together and data can be exported or imported among them with minimum steps. Many office applications include word processing, spreadsheets, databases and email utilities in one application stack.

Techopedia explains Application Stack

An application stack is a group of software programs that work together to achieve a common goal. Typical application stacks include closely related software applications that aid in the completion of a certain task. It is important not to confuse software stacks with application stacks. An application stack offers application programs which can ease workflow and help manage tasks, whereas a software stack provides infrastructure software, instead of typical applications. A software stack offers minimum interaction with the software, on the other hand, an application stack provides an environment to work in.
