Technology As A Competitive Advantage

Many organizations list a technology as one of their upper hands. Is this substantial? At times yes, however In many cases no. Technology creates along two ways – a transformative way and a progressive way. A progressive technology is one which empowers new businesses or empowers answers for issues that were already impractical. Semiconductor technology is a decent illustration. Not exclusively did it bring forth new ventures and items, yet it generated other progressive innovations – transistor technology, coordinated circuit technology, microchip technology. All which give a number of the items and administrations we devour today. Be that as it may, is semiconductor technology an upper hand? Taking a gander at the quantity of semiconductor organizations that exist today (with new ones shaping each day), I’d say not. What about chip technology?

Once more, no. Bunches of microchip organizations out there. What about quad center microchip technology? Not the same number of organizations, but rather you have Intel, AMD, ARM, and a large group of organizations building custom quad center processors (Apple, Samsung, Qualcomm, and so forth). So once more, a sorry upper hand. Rivalry from contending advances and simple access to IP mitigates the apparent upper hand of a specific technology. Android versus iOS is a decent case of how this functions. Both working frameworks are subordinates of UNIX. Apple utilized their technology to present iOS and picked up an early market advantage.

In any case, Google, using their variation of Unix (a contending technology), made up for lost time generally rapidly. The purposes behind this lie not in the fundamental technology, but rather in how the items made conceivable by those advances were conveyed to market (free versus walled plant, and so on.) and the distinctions in the vital dreams of each organization. Developmental technology is one which incrementally expands upon the base progressive technology. Be that as it may, by its exceptionally nature, the incremental change is simpler for a contender to match or jump.
