I don't think you know how profitable software can be. Database,BI,Statistics,Reporting, Analysis tools are expensive, companies have to renew licenses after 1 to .. years for each computer these kind of software are installed. Heavy price tags for server and client sides. Which is why IBM can easily sell its pc division to Lenovo and now the server division as well.
