  • Slideware are slides usually made in Power Point to illustrate a software workflow - meant to mimic how the software would actually be used. This is usually done when software is in a beta format and is considered not reliable enough to show to a customer.

    ex: We had better use the slideware to show the new version of the software because the beta version is still too buggy.
