The Computer Hardware Industry Sector consists of businesses that manufacture computer semiconductors and other components that make a computer. This sector is different from the Information Technology industry sector in that the latter primarily provides consulting services (writing software, designing databases, data management, etc.) and business outsourcing processes.
The Industry Sector is a classification that describes the activity of an entity within the economy. The classification is based on where the relevant entity derives the majority of its revenue.
In the Collaborative Bond and Money Market Data Model the Computer Hardware Sector appears within the Industry Sector Type: Corporate.
CMDportal uses industry sector classifications both at the Legal Entity level, as well as at the Group level. At the Legal Entity level the entity is classified by their actual industry activity.
Accordingly, we classify a finance company that is part of a computer hardware corporation as a financial corporation at the entity level but at the group level as for example a “Corporate – Computer Hardware.”
