A Short Introduction to Software Economics - Java Günlüğüm
What follows is a part of my master thesis that I wrote on the conditions of the competition in IT industry in Turkey. Before delving into the details of the topic I wanted to give a short account of software economics. Most of the time people understand the internal economical analysis of a software project when the topic is considered. That’s quite reasonable but there is another aspect of software economics, which is about its macroeconomic conditions in a market and for example how those conditions affect the behavior of a software house that strives to exist in a very unstable market such as the one in Turkey. So ... market research, surveys and trends

The Economics of Information Technology - Cambridge University Press
During the 1990s there were three back-to-back events that stimulated investment in information technology: telecommunications deregulation in 1996, the “year 2K” problem in 1998–99, and the “dot com” boom in 1999–2000. The resulting investment boom led to a dramatic run-up of stock prices for information technology companies.    Many IT companies listed their stocks on NASDAQ. Figure 1 depicts the cumulative rate of return on the NASDAQ and the S&P 500 during most of the 1990s. Note how closely the two indices track each other up until January of 1999, at ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

    The superior performance of the U.S. economy in the late 1990s has led many commentators to speculate that a "New Economy" has emerged in which heavy investment in information technology (IT) has led to an era of sustained economic growth. Although the recent economic slowdown has dampened some of the enthusiasm for the idea of a New Economy, a fundamental question remains: can the output growth experienced in the late 90's, which was significantly higher than that observed in previous decades, be traced back to IT?      This paper addresses this question by looking at ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
