1.2.2 Off the Shelf software is a mass produced system for all buyers to acquire the same system software, it is easy to get fixed and is sold in shops worldwide
1.2.3 Custom written software. Although most organisations use off-the-shelf software, some organisations will find that it just does not do exactly what they want or it doesn't work with their current systems. In this case, they might decide to have the software system they need designed and developed specifically for them.(Software designed especially for one job or a certain task)
1.2.4 An example of this is MS Word. The system doesn't need word to run however it is an application that can be downloaded
