Software characteristics are classified into six major components.

• Functionality: Refers to the degree of performance of the software against its intended purpose.

• Reliability: Refers to the ability of the software to provide desired functionality under the given conditions.

• Usability: Refers to the extent to which the software can be used with ease.

• Efficiency: Refers to the ability of the software to use system resources in the most effective and efficient manner.

• Maintainability: Refers to the ease with which the modifications can be made in a software system to extend its functionality, improve its performance, or correct errors.

• Portability: Refers to the ease with which software developers can transfer software from one platform to another, without (or with minimum) changes. In simple terms, it refers to the ability of software to function properly on different hardware and software platforms without making any changes in it.

In addition to the above mentioned characteristics, robustness and integrity are also important. 

Robustness refers to the degree to which the software can keep on functioning in spite of being provided with invalid data while integrity refers to the degree to which unauthorized access to the software or data can be prevented.
