  21. 21. Three Openness strategies21 Copyright VisionMobile 2011 Copyright VisionMobile 2011
  22. 22. What is Google’s strategy? 1. Flatten Flatten everything that stands between eyeballs and Google inventory. This is based on the economics of complements; to increase the value of your product you need to reduce the value of your complements. It explains the Android and Chrome strategies 2. Expand Expand the footprint of Google inventory (e.g. search-based text ads) across the user journey by introducing new Google services like Gmail, GMaps, Google Voice as well as Android handsets. 3. Mine Mine the information available on every user of that inventory. Mining information helps Google to better micro-target users which directly increases the value of its inventory.22 Copyright VisionMobile 2011
  23. 23. How does Android help Google? 1. Android drives eyeballs to Google apps Drives eyeballs to Google Maps, Gtalk, and other apps bundled on Android handsets and include ads Google is also the default (and most easy to integrate) ad network for Android apps 2. Android drives a reduction in handset retail price points ..as price becomes the last remaining differentiation option for handset vendors. The cheaper the handsets, the more people will buy, and the more eyeballs for Google ads 3. Android drives more telcos to adopt flat data rates Therefore more people using smartphones, therefore more eyeballs for Google ads23 Copyright VisionMobile 2011

  26. 26. Four HTML5 and the impact of web apps26 Copyright VisionMobile 2011
  27. 27. Where are we with HTML5? …and how long will it take to fulfill its promise?27 Copyright VisionMobile 2011
  28. 28. …but what is HTML5, really? brings capabilities of web apps closer to those of native apps Emerging next generation of HTML web language –  Collection of drafts by WHAT WG that merge into W3C specifications WHAT WG - Web Hypertext Application Technologies –  W3C standard will be completed no sooner than 2013 Driven by leading web and platform players Main enhancements –  UI tools –  plugin-free video/audio –  off-line storage –  geo location –  2D graphics –  speed and communication28 Copyright VisionMobile 2011
  29. 29. High fragmentation in HTML5 support29 Copyright VisionMobile 2011
  30. 30. HTML5 has many benefactors all pushing HTML5 and web apps for their own unrelated reasons Apple looking to move the web away from Flash –  Google searching for more ways to commoditize complements –  Facebook aiming to break-down Apple/Google silos and distance Adobe –  Microsoft to leverage web innovation to Windows 8 –  Mobile operators hoping to regain control lost to native platforms –  Qualcomm working to create competitive advantage for its chips –  Brands looking use web as a low-cost way to go cross-screen –  Tool makers facilitating web-to-native hybrid development – 30 Copyright VisionMobile 2011
  31. 31. Can HTML5 compete with platforms? HTML5 is a complementary technology, not yet a full-fledged platform App platform ingredients Software Developer Monetisation Distribution Retailing foundations ecosystem HTML5 ✔ = ✖ ✖ ✖ fragmented platform always a step behind native will depend on app store complex tool-chain waiting for a leader Facebook? Google? Microsoft? Other? most appealing to those who do not yet develop for mobile complimentary tech to those who develops native apps31 Copyright VisionMobile 2011
  32. 32. “We don’t expect developers to choose between HTML5 and native apps. We expect they will choose both, just as we did. We view HTML5 as a technology, not a platform.” June 2011 http://www.insidemobileapps.com/2011/06/17/facebook-html5-mobile-platform-project-spartan/32 Copyright VisionMobile 2011
