  7. 7. Department of Business Administration College of Management 林玠恒 D00741002 1 Initial dominance and decline in DRAMs How would you explain Intel’s initial dominance and subsequent decline in DRAMs?Key factors to  The industry was driven by necessity to cross-licensechip price: among established players. Through the Credibility of• Shape of learning curve Noyce, Intel became part of that sharing network.• Capacity  Overestimated the entry barrier of DRAM market. expansion  Reacted too late for Moore’s Law in DRAM technology (the costs of computing fall in half every 18 months).  Lost the advantage of dominant design due to its less complementary assets  Gave up the business too late. “We understood that to gain a 10% market share in DRAMs we would have to make a $600 million investment in a new fab. We were doomed to fail because there was industry overcapacity.” --- Grove 12 October 2011 Fall 2011 MBA Management of Technology 7

  15. 15. Department of Business Administration College of Management The PC was at the center of computing during the 1990s, but if you look at the next decade, it is the Internet. The PC is still very important in the Internet era, but there are lots of other things that are important as well. People are going to access the Net off their cell phones, and more cell phones are sold today than PCs. Networking is becoming more important, whether it’s in the home, small business, or enterprise. If you want to be involved in this new era, you have to look for the new growth opportunities. That’s what we are trying to do. ---Craig Barrett (1999)12 October 2011 Fall 2011 MBA Management of Technology 15

  17. 17. Department of Business Administration College of Management 吳宣儀 D00741004 3 Becoming the builder of the Internet Why? 新官上任三把火 Intel invested a large amount in such a short time, but not matured enough for the new competition and new business. However, it could have been worse if Intel did do so. 1. There was a recession and decreasing on world PC microprocessor revenue (Exhibit 8). 2. The competition in new business was even stronger than its core business (see Exhibit 10b). 3. Internally, Intel had a series of implementation errors (p.15). 2001-2002 Intel shut down businesses ranging from Web hosting, network switching, and network appliances to Intel consumer products. Barrett introduced a back-to-basics program to achieve operational excellence.12 October 2011 Fall 2011 MBA Management of Technology 17
  18. 18. Department of Business Administration College of Management 吳宣儀 D00741004 3 Becoming the builder of the Internet Do you think that Intel should maintain these strategy moves in 2003? Yes, because the strategic position was right to the future market and demand. The lost was temporary due to ill-management and unfocused diversification strategy.32-bit Celeron (1999) Microprocessor Value-based lower prices for higher volumes Mainstream High performance 32-bit Celeron 32-bit Pentium 32-bit Xeon 64-bit Itanium32-bit Pentium (1997) (1999) (1997) (1998) (2001) Low- and mid-range Low-end consumer PC Mass PC corporate server and Corporate server workstation 32-bit Xeon (1998) Client part Network connectivity Server/data farm Convergence of computing and communications is the major 64-bit Itanium (2001) growth driver of the Internet, and we are in both.” – Craig Barrett 2002 Intel successfully pulled a generation ahead of AMD. Intel had roughly 89% market segment share in mobile CPUs. 12 October 2011 Fall 2011 MBA Management of Technology 18
