  • “Our initiative to move from Jive to SharePoint had a strong ROI business case but was complicated due to the short window for migration completion during the end of year holiday season.  We needed a technology partner who could get the job done predictably in that short 6 week period.  Additionally, we required the new SharePoint Intranet site to look and navigate like the legacy Jive site in order to not disrupt the field sales and service teams across the country who rely on the system daily for operations.  ThreeWill not only met but exceeded our expectations in completing the migration on time and under budget!”

Industry

Industry is the production of goods or services within an economy. The major source of revenue of a group or company is the indicator of its relevant industry. When a large group has multiple sources of revenue generation, it is considered to be working in different industries. Manufacturing industry became a key sector of production and labor in European and North American countries during the Industrial Revolution, upsetting previous mercantile and feudal economies. This occurred through many successive rapid advances in technology, such as the production of steel and coal.

Following the Industrial Revolution, perhaps a third of the world’s economic output is derived from manufacturing industries. Many developed countries and many developing/semi-developed countries (People’s Republic of China, India etc.) depend significantly on manufacturing industry. Industries, the countries they reside in, and the economies of those countries are interlinked in a complex web of interdependence.

Industries can be classified in a variety of ways. At the top level, industry is often classified according to the three-sector theory into sectors: primary or extractive, secondary or manufacturing, and tertiary or services. Some authors add quaternary (knowledge) or even quinary (culture and research) sectors. Over time, the fraction of a society’s industry within each sector changes.

Main article: industry classification
Below the economic sectors there are many other more detailed industry classifications. These classification systems commonly divide industries according to similar functions and markets and identify businesses producing related products.

Industries can also be identified by product, such as: construction industry, chemical industry, petroleum industry, automotive industry, electronic industry, meatpacking industry, hospitality industry, food industry, fish industry, software industry, paper industry, entertainment industry, semiconductor industry, cultural industry, and poverty industry.

Market-based classification systems such as the Global Industry Classification Standard and the Industry Classification Benchmark are used in finance and market research.
