No matter what industry you work in, software will be a major part of it in one way or another. Just in the past five to ten years we have made huge strides in software and many businesses rely on at least one package on a daily basis.
An Introduction to software
If there is something you want to do on a computer, whether itâs something simple like designing a poster or something that pushes the boundaries like taking a video of a forest and making it appear on fire, the chances are that there is a piece of software that will help you out.
Perhaps the key use of software today is to prevent viruses. With so much of our lives revolving around a computer, there are people out there who design viruses and malware purely to damage your system â so a good antivirus is a must.
Computer viruses used to be quite straightforward, but they have become increasingly sophisticated and come in many shapes and forms. This comprehensive visual guide from Cheeky Munkey is a perfect illustration on the evolution of computer viruses.

How software has changed the face of certain industries

Kitchen design

The design world is an industry that has arguably benefited from software advancements more than any other. It used to be that a kitchen designer would have to get a pen and paper out to craft their latest ideas and then spend hours trying to paint an authentic image in the mind of their clients.
Needless to say, it was a pretty time consuming way of doing things. However, advanced CAD software like autokitchen allows designers to create an authentic 3D model on their computer. The software has endless capabilities and it will even allow you to take a picture of your kitchen and superimpose new worktops and appliances in â so you can easily see how a prospective purchase will look by the time you get it home.

Photo booth

Photo booths are often quite boring, you really only go in them when you need a photo for your passport or a job application. However, software enhancements have meant that photo booth companies can now add a bit of personality to their systems.
Through green screen background mapping software you can add almost any background to your picture. Imagine being at a party in London and taking a picture with your friends in front of the Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty â it would certainly be fun and be a good memento of the night.
Companies like Pixpod will rent out photo booths for a range of events and they are rapidly becoming a must have at any wedding or party. As a result, such companies are able to target more of a mass audience and get their products in front of a wider range of people â something that wouldn't have been possible without software!

Films

Films are a widespread area where youâll notice how the increase in capabilities of particular software has helped directors to create almost lifelike images on the big screen.
Software like Adobe After Effects let film crews record certain footage and then add breathtaking special effects in the editing phase For example, The Hobbit films used editing software to the max, large sections of the battle scenes were produced on a computer.

News media â apps, video

News media is another industry that relies heavily on software. Gone are the days where you can only get your news by reading the paper or waiting for the clock to strike 10pm.
Smart phones and tablets have changed the face of the industry and due to constant advancements in the software on these devices, news companies are able to bring the latest stories to you at the touch of a button.
Most news companies will have apps that arenât only text-based stories, youâll be able to watch videos and listen to audio as well. As a result, advancements in software have made news more accessible, meaning that the companies can target a larger section of the market much more easily than before.
