ISV stands for independent software vendor. An ISV delivers a multitude of software capabilities in order to address business requirements, operational and/or technical. Using an ISV partner is necessary to navigate the ecosystem of software out there. Typically, an ISV partner will allow you to add features to your existing system by “plugging in” an extra piece of (independent) software. Seamlessly integrated to your business solutions, you can now use the new added capabilities within your current systems.
