Booz & Company Global ICT 50 Study

Booz-and-company-logo

 

A new report by Booz & Co provides a ranking of the top ICT 50 global firms and the digitization ecosystems.  It appears that IBM is at the top, followed by Oracle and Microsoft.

“Businesses around the world are looking to gain an edge in the race to digitize—to seamlessly incorporate new computing, communications, and collaboration technologies; to streamline their operations; and to connect more closely with customers, suppliers, and partners. To do so, they must look to the continually evolving ecosystem of hardware, software, IT services, and telecom companies. These sectors provide the products and services that make digitization possible.

Booz & Co looked at them across four critical criteria: financial performance, portfolio strength, go-to-market footprint, and innovation and branding.

“Every company in every industry has its own market value proposition: a way to play that represents the way it chooses to create value in the market, ideally matched with its strongest capabilities. Companies’ ways of playing can be grouped according to the basic foundational approach they take. By classifying each of the ICT 50 as one or more of these “puretones,” we were able to determine which value propositions seem most advantaged in the market—for now.

Venture capitalist Marc Andreessen is known to have popularize the sentence: “Software is eating the world”. Thus, some start-ups based on a new software are  disrupting whole sectors, like AirBnb with the hotel industry.

  • mobile is now changing everything,

Digital visions from WCIT 2012 in Montréal

The  18th World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT 2012) was held in Montreal.  Larry King was the moderator of a panel composed of nine experts in the information and communication technologies industries (ICT).  They shared their visions on the impacts of the digital economy.

The digital economy is enabling governments to empower their citizens. For Ivo Ivanovski, Minister of Information, in the Republic of Macedonia, “Our citizens are our real resources.  We are becoming more transparent with the use of electronic services and mobile services.  Thus, we are becoming more productive and cutting the waiting time for services. In the future, all governments will be connected to their citizens through mobile services”.

With Moore’s law, microchips are doubling in capacity every 18 months.  Microchips are getting smaller and with increased processing, almost everything will become a computer. Human aspirations and imaginations are the only limits, said Brian David Johnston, a researcher from Intel.  Using the technology at the right time and at the right place to solve business and consumers problems is critical, suggests Vivek Ranadivé, CEO of TIBCO Software.  For him, the context, more than the information will be king in the future.  Content has to find its right place in the right context.  “We need to use actual information to resolve humankind problems such as health or water shortage.”

The World Wide Web is now at his fifth generation.  The Internet network and appliances are certainly going to change but not the information system of the WWW, proposes Robert Kahn, co-founder of the Internet and manager of the Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI).  He pinpoints that in the digital economy some very important issues are private life and security.

Digital is as turbulent for media, as online music has been on the music industry.  IP technology is empowering consumers and enterprises and reduced their barriers of entry, according to Kevin Crull, Bell Media president.  Content creation is still very important, even though the user experience and availability of content has been improved by the suppliers of services. Mr. Crull is excited and is also afraid of the fast adoption of real-time content on mobiles devices. “The ICT sector is creating new business models, while some are also disappearing quickly.”

Mobile phone is a powerful education tool helping literacy around the world with mobile learning and practices.  It can also reduce crimes and protect journalists in some parts of the world, pinpoints Philippe Kridelka, director for UNESCO.  The digital economy is based on information management and collaboration suggests Mark Aboud, Senior Manager, SAP.  “We need to leverage the intellectual capital at diverse places and use it to create new things.”

Wired interview with Marc Andreesen, venture capitalist and former entrepreneur: best article so far in 2012.

The article written by Chris Anderson, Wired editor in chief about “The Man Who Makes the Future: Wired Icon Marc Andreessen” is the best article I read so far in 2012.  It covers venture capital, major internet technological trends of the past two decades, strategy and finance.  Andreesen saw five Internet trends before most experts.

 

1- 1992, Everyone Will Have the Web

 

2- 1995, The Browser Will Be the Operating System

 

3-1999, Web Businesses Will Live in the Cloud

 

4- 2004, Everything Will Be Social

 

5- 2009, Software Will Eat the World

 

In 2009, Andreessen and his longtime business partner, Loudcloud cofounder Ben Horowitz, created a venture capital firm called Andreessen Horowitz. Their vision today: an economy transformed by the rise of computing. Andreessen believes that enormous technology companies can now be built around the use of hyperintelligent software to revolutionize whole sectors of the economy, from retail to real estate to health care.”

 

Andreessen Horowitz is one of the most successful VC tech firm in the world.  They made numerous home-runs investments such as Skype, Facebook, Groupon, Zynga, Twitter, Airbnb and Foursquare.

Andreessen Horowitz’s investments span the mobile, gaming, social, ecommerceeducation and enterprise IT (including cloud computingsecurity, and Software as a Service) industries.
