Building a smarter planet Zurich Research Lab Innovative Collaboration Varioprint AG and IntexyS Photonics What’s innovative? • Intexys Photonics and Varioprint AG Partnered with the IBM Zurich Research to develop a cost competitive, optical data transmission solution to increase the bandwidth between processor chips. 14
  • 15. Building a smarter planet Zurich Research LabDisruptive and Radical InnovationBandwidth Density of Objects All Electrical All Optical  Today, optical interconnects are used for long-distance intra-cluster connections due to high bandwidth (BW) capabilities  As BW requirements increase, optics will be able to provide a cost- IBM Federation Switch performance advantage for even copper and optical interconnect shorter distances, for backplane and versions card level interconnects 15 © 2009 IBM Corporation

  • 17. Building a smarter planet Zurich Research LabBuilding and Maintaining a Health Ecosystem  Broadly speaking, there are two foundational components of an effective keystone strategy. The first is to create value within the ecosystem […] the second is to then share the value within the ecosystem (Iansiti, 2004)  “Successful innovation requires tracking your partners and potential adopters as closely as you track your own development process” (R. Adner, 2006) Supply Chain Ecosystem Strategy Actively create and “manage” supplier base, create value for suppliers ( support adoption of the technology in an entry market). Track ecosystem risk. 17 © 2009 IBM Corporation
