Dear Javaranchers,

I have the following understanding of what is meant by a product company and a service company

** Product Company
An company that develops products focussing a particular industry, say for Eg. One of the areas, AutoDesk develops products are in the construction/civil work. Eg. Autocad, 3dsMax.

** Service Company
An IT company that develops products for a client, say for Eg. Infosys developing product for a pharmaceutical company.

Could anyone please comment if my understanding is correct? Please correct me, If I am wrong.

Kind regards,
Hardik Raja

From my understanding every software is like a product. The difference between the way a company is operated is what that actually differentiates between a product and a services company.
