  3. 3.

  4. 4. January 19, 2007 www.sterliteoptical.com At the turn of the Century - The World was evolving • Predictions talked about bandwidth multiplying like transistors on PCBs • Telecom equipment majors were busy putting up capacities to cater to the humongous demands of Service Providers. • It seemed like good times were on a roll for Telecom and InfoTech.
  5. 5. January 19, 2007 www.sterliteoptical.com A Variant of Murphy’s Law: “Everything will go wrong at one point of time.” Extension of the above Variant: “That time is always when you least expect it.” www.mkschubert.de But Murphy had other plans
  6. 6. January 19, 2007 www.sterliteoptical.com Telecom Equipment Majors During the Telecom / IT Bubble Service Providers suddenly backed out of CAPEX promises. Telecom Service Providers: T: AT&T VZ: Verizon Telecom Eqpmt. Majors: ALU: Alcatel-Lucent #1 – System Integrator CSCO: Cisco #1 – Network Eqpt GLW: Corning #1 - Optical fiber Resurrection initiated Telecom and InfoTech The Boom and the Bust
  7. 7. January 19, 2007 www.sterliteoptical.com Revolutionary Ideas are either • Accidents – with no/low financial costs incurred • High R&D efforts – Million/Billion $$$ investments Key Takeaway: Be alert for disruptive ideas and technologies – you will always come across one when things have gone wrong. Teacherlink.ed.usu.edu The Eureka moment …
  8. 8. January 19, 2007 www.sterliteoptical.com Evolution to Revolution … … … • The bubble burst saw Equipment majors suffering huge losses. - This forced them to look for Cost reduction possibilities. • The Outsourcing industry and the Software cycle emerged as radical opportunities. - The IT revolution is the fastest growing contributor to the Indian GDP now. The Bust was immediately followed by a period of gains for the Indian IT majors. Bloomberg Was this sudden shift – an accident of epic proportions?
  9. 9. January 19, 2007 www.sterliteoptical.com Evolution to Revolution … … … The World is Flat • According to Thomas Friedman – YES !!! He says: - The accident happened around the millennium - Ushered in the third era of Globalization, - A revolution happened that made Beijing, Bangalore and Bethesda as next door neighbours. • Three flatteners that revolutionized the World. - The fall of the Berlin Wall succeeded by the rise of Microsoft Windows 3.0. - The Netscape browser, commercialization of open transmission standards and investment of USD 1 trillion in fiber optic networks. - The Workflow revolution - development of application-to-application talking software (middleware) which connected the PC with the deployed bandwidth. The investment in fiber optic and submarine networks linked opportunity seeking nations like India & China with loss- making/profit-seeking nations like the US. This gave birth to the Outsourcing Industry

  23. 23. January 19, 2007 www.sterliteoptical.com What does this mean for you • Technology is becoming a key differentiator between a Good and a Great Company. • Ability to manage and focus technology towards customer applications is the key role of the Company’s management. • Adaptability and flexibility in changing technological and value offerings to customer is key. • The value of a company/individual is more on its ‘knowledge capabilities’ and ability to deliver value from this knowledge – rather than only on Physical Assets.

  25. 25. January 19, 2007 www.sterliteoptical.com Key Takeaways Evolution to Revolution • Predictions on the exponential rise of Telecom and IT companies were not fulfilled. This was a boon for India and China. - Evolution of fiber optic networks in US facilitated the outsourcing revolution in India. - Opportunities need to be identified in adversity. - Companies that succeed are those who successfully adapt their business models to the prevailing situation. • Sterlite Optical has turned around successfully after the IT meltdown. - Technology and Knowledge based revolution acted as the base. - Challenge all norms and assumptions. - Focus on your core competencies. - Do not be afraid to venture into the unknown. • The Indian industry is beginning to reap the fruits of the IT revolution. - Global opportunities have changed the outlook of Indian companies. - Organizations with differentiators that focus on customers and shareholders are the most likely to succeed. - The value of an individual or a company is now more in terms of their intangible value than their physical assets.
