Software development brings product designs to life. Developers create and maintain software applications for end-users, and automate business processes which improves efficiency. Most developers fall in one of two groups: back-end developers and front-end developers.
Product people are responsible for the conceptualizing and creation of digital products and tools. They talk to stakeholders (management, users), design features, and come up with easy to use interfaces. Their work is converted by the development team into functional software.
Marketing brings in revenue and can be inbound or outbound. Digital marketing is the art and skill of convincing potential clients to pay for your service or use your software through the web. It's about properly communicating the value of your solution to your clients.
