ABC hardware isone of the most important clients of the organization, and the organization wants to keep theclient happy at any cost. The X Company has an agreement with the developers of that softwarethat the company would not install it in any of its client computers. The computer programmer isconcerned about the agreement that has been made with the software developers. So, he raisescomplaints about it. But the supervisor is not ready to follow the agreement and wants to installthe software in the computers of ABC Hardware.Answer2If the concerned organization installs the software in the computer of ABC Hardware, it willviolate the agreement that has been done between the company and the developers of thesoftware.
