What Is Software?

According to Wikipedia, Software is a collection of data or computer instructions that tell the computer how to work. This is in contrast to physical hardware, from which the system is built and actually performs the work. In computer science and software engineering, computer software is all information processed by computer systems, programs, and data. Computer software includes computer programs, libraries, and related non-executable data, such as online documentation or digital media.

To run a computer system, software functions have an important role. And below are some functions of computer software that can be concluded, including the following.

  • The fundamental function of the software is to detect hardware devices on a computer and then arrange hardware devices to work together.
  • The other function of the software is as a medium to connect other software with computer hardware.
  • In addition, the function of the software is also a program identifier and translator of other software in order to work together.

So Basically, Computer hardware and software require each other and neither can be realistically used on its own. The software works by formalizing and writing down causes and effects. For Example, I’m thirsty now and a little bit sleepy (cause) so I’ll go and make myself a cup of coffee (effect). Actually making a cup of coffee is what the programming does 🙂 .
