The Software Division provides a forum for companies developing the applications, services, infrastructure and tools that are driving the software and services industry forward. Through the division, executives of member companies meet to brainstorm, collaborate, and discuss the industry's latest challenges. The division's many programs offer excellent vehicles for companies to develop partnerships, boost their profile, and gain strategic insight on key issues.

Working Agenda
Through the Software Division, executives from companies large and small, public and private, come together in various working groups, committees and forums to address strategic issues facing their companies. The results: industry-leading best practices, guidelines, case studies, standards and development opportunities. The working agenda evolves in conjunction with industry trends and at the direction of members.

Networking & Partnerships
The Software Division members encompass the entire breadth of industry's ecosystem, creating an environment that fosters networking and ultimately the partnerships that drive business. In no other locale do companies find such a range of potential partners. SIIA staff can make key introductions as appropriate.
