An independent software vendor (ISV) is a company specializing in making or selling software, designed for mass or niche markets. This typically applies for application-specific or embedded software, from other software producers. Examples: IBM has a comprehensive ISV program. Oracle products may be embedded in other software (Embedded Software License (ESL)) or used in other software (Application Specific Full Use license (ASFU)). Such markets may be diverse, including software for real estate brokers, scheduling for healthcare personnel, barcode scanning, stock maintenance and even child care management software.
