A software house is a company that primarily provides software products. These companies may specialize in business or consumer software (either out-of-the-box or single-license software) or software-as-a-service (SaaS) products. The common definition is that the company is mainly invested in developing and distributing software products.
The goals and objectives of a software house vary, depending on the client base and a structure for software release. Some houses specialize in contractor jobs that are commissioned for specific corporate clients. Others create public out-of-the-box software to be sold on store shelves. Each specific approach requires its own design process, set of professional rules and distribution strategy, taking into account, for example, time zones, user system requirements and much more.
