Accelerating the Digital Economy
Software innovation is transforming every sector of our economy and enriching every aspect of our lives.
The software industry has a profound impact on the American economy. A recent BSA study shows the software industry contributes more than $1 trillion to the US GDP, and nearly 10 million jobs, with significant impact in each of the 50 states. This expands America’s economic potential across numerous sectors.
Software enables businesses to grow through cloud computing solutions and analytics, and it allows individuals to hold the power of the internet in their pockets. Members of BSA | The Software Alliance provide cloud services, data analytics, cybersecurity solutions, and other cutting-edge products and services to businesses of all sizes across all industries. They are at the forefront of the technological promises of artificial intelligence, blockchain, and the Internet of Things.
Policies that reward innovation, allow software service providers to meet their customers’ privacy and security expectations, and reduce barriers to digital trade will accelerate society’s access to the benefits of software and the data economy.
