Internet

The Internet is the primary way to deliver content of all kinds direct to consumers and a platform on which applications of all kinds and their users depend. Trying to define a line between the Internet and other software technology segments Corum tracks is hard to do. The Internet is infrastructure and applications and content. The companies Corum has placed in this market segment are essentially those that could not exist without it.
