Literature Review

Software industry can be segregated into services and products. Services would include body shopping, data processing, programming services etc where revenue is generated on the basis of time spent (time & material) or on the basis of negotiated contract price (fixed price). Software products could be niche products or mass-market products-systems software, and application software.


The domestic training segment has a fairly large number of scattered players. However, the top two (NIIT & APTECH) control around 70% of the market, which is estimated at around Rs.9.1bn. revenues are seasonal in nature, as 90% of it comes from individual training, and enrollment peaks during summer vacations. The key to profits is reducing idle time of computers and tutors, which is generally around 25-30%. Training institutes are perceived as high priced of low quality (barring a few top players). In spite of this, the segment grew by 38% in FY99, driving by emerging career opportunities for high-end software packages and increasing penetration of computers.


With IBM selling off its PC business, the world PC market is headed for a major shake-up. China’s Lenovo Group, which bought the business from IBM for $1.25 billion plus assuming $500 million IBM debt, with this single move, is set to become the world’s third largest PC maker.
IBM’s selling off of the PC business to concentrate on services and support marks the end of an era, as it was Big Blue, which pioneered the PC movement.

Who made the first PC?

Though some computers were made before IBM’s personal computer, it was the latter which made the device an item for mass consumption.

According to a Reuters report, the MITS Altair was introduced in the January 1975 issue of Popular Electronics as a home construction kit. But is caught the fancy of hobbyists who began building rudimentary "home computers”.
In 1976, Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs introduce Apple I, which was an open circuit board bolted together in a wooden case and which reportedly sold for $666.66. Apple Computer was incorporated the following year.
It was in 1981 that IBM unveiled the personal computer, the IBM-PC model 5150. It was this machine that helped set the standard for personal computers and went on sale on a mass scale.
That same year, British technical publisher Adam Osborne introduced the first popular "portable computer" weighing 23.5 pounds that came pre-installed with a bundle of software. However, the company went bankrupt in 1983.

In 1982, Compaq was founded and it introduced the Compaq Portable, the first IBM-compatible PC, a 28-pound machine the size of a sewing machine.
In 1982 again, typewriter-maker Olivetti of Italy introduced its first personal computer, the M20.
In 1983, Michael Dell, a first-year student in the University of Texas, founded Dell Computer in his college dormitory room.

What is the state of the world PC market today?

IDC forecasts say that worldwide PC shipments will grow by 10.1 per cent to 195.1 million in 2005, a year in which the global economy is expected to face a slowdown. That compares with a growth expected to come in at 14.5 per cent this year with a shipment forecast of 177.2 million units. The growth rate was 11.9 per cent in 2003 and 1.9 per cent in 2002.

That sector is expected to post 11.3 per cent growth in PC shipments next year compared with consumer growth rates of eight per cent worldwide and just 5.1 per cent in the United States. In the third quarter, growth in worldwide consumer PC shipments slipped to less than eight per cent, down from a peak of more than 25 per cent in the year-ago quarter.
Gartner forecasts PC unit growth to average 5.7 per cent annually from 2006through 2008, compared with average growth of 11.3 per cent from 2003 through 2007.


According to Mr Ajay Chowdhary, Chairman, HCL Info says that the hardware industry, though in the country for over 30 years, is not favoured by the government but we are good in software but not in hardware. Exports have overtaken the domestic industry. We need to create global scale industry in India to attract investments our country needs many more computers. A country of one billion imports only 1.5 million personal computers (PC) every year as compared to world production of 40 million. Therefore it is necessary to manufacture computers within India. We need more than 5 million computers every year. It is for the country to decide - whether we should keep on importing and how much computerization we actually need to undertake.
