Richness or reach? The trade-off used to be simple but absolute: Your business strategy either could focus on "rich" information - customized products and services tailored to a niche audience - or could reach out to a larger market, but with watered-down information that sacrificed richness in favor of a broad, general appeal. Much of business strategy as we know it today rests on this fundamental trade-off. Now, say Evans and Wurster, the new economics of information is eliminating the trade-off between richness and reach, blowing apart the foundations of traditional business strategy.Blown to Bitsreveals how the spread of connectivity and common standards is redefining the information channels that link businesses with their customers, suppliers, and employees. Increasingly, your customers will have rich access to a universe of alternatives, your suppliers will exploit direct access to your customers, and your competitors will pick off the most profitable parts of your value chain. Your competitive advantage is up for grabs. To prepare corporate executives and entrepreneurs alike for a fundamental change in business competition, Evans and Wurster expand and illuminate groundbreaking concepts first explored in the award-winningHarvard Business Reviewarticle "Strategy and the New Economics of Information," and present a practical guide for applying them. Examples span the spectrum of industries--from financial services to health care, from consumer to industrial goods, and from media to retailing.Blown to Bitsshows how to build new strategies that reflect a world in which richness and reach go hand in hand and how to make the most of the new forces shaping competitive advantage.

Every day, billions of photographs, news stories, songs, X-rays, TV shows, phone calls, and emails are being scattered around the world as sequences of zeroes and ones: bits. We can't escape this explosion of digital information and few of us want to-the benefits are too seductive. The technology has enabled unprecedented innovation, collaboration, entertainment, and democratic participation. But the same engineering marvels are shattering centuries-old assumptions about privacy, identity, free expression, and personal control as more and more details of our lives are captured as digital data. Can you control who sees all that personal information about you? Can email be truly confidential, when nothing seems to be private? Shouldn't the Internet be censored the way radio and TV are? is it really a federal crime to download music? When you use Google or Yahoo! to search for something, how do they decide which sites to show you? Do you still have free speech in the digital world? Do you have a voice in shaping government or corporate policies about any of this? Blown to Bits offers provocative answers to these questions and tells intriguing real-life stories. This book is a wake-up call To The human consequences of the digital explosion.

In this paperback edition of the acclaimed bookThe Death of Distance, journalist Frances Cairncross ofThe Economistshows us how the world is changing with the introduction of the Internet and wireless technology. First published in 1997, Cairncross's provocative book-based on evidence from two sweeping surveys on telecommunications-argues that new communications technologies are rapidly obliterating distance as a relevant factor in how we conduct our business and personal lives. Now, the author has substantially rewritten and updated the book, with 70 percent new data, fresh analysis, and new company examples to offer a look at the economic landscape ahead. Cairncross argues that the story today is not only the diminishing importance of distance, but also the mobility and ubiquity of technology. New material covers the implications of recent events and debates including: Ø the rise and fall of the dot-com phenomenon; Ø the spread of mobile telephones and other wireless communications; Ø the wave of technology mergers; Ø the authenticity of the "new economy;" Ø diverging trends in business-to-consumer and business-to-business e-commerce; Ø the restructuring of the organization in the wake of the Internet; Ø the increasing impact of patent law on the communications economy; Ø the so-called "digital divide"; Ø and the democratizing effects of communications technology on companies, governments, and society. With an updated "Trendspotter's Guide" that offers a snapshot of the new opportunities and challenges we face in a wireless world, this timely book will help all of us envision and enjoy an increasingly connected future.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The title of this thesis might lead the cursory reader to the assumption that this is another one of countless academic works whose authors have overestimated the prospects of the Internet. However, this paper lays claim to be one of the early few that take a more rational approach to the subject by analyzing the realistic profit potential of online business models. Furthermore, future success factors for finance portals will be discussed and their respective value proposition thoroughly examined. Since the fast moving Internet hype has had to give way to an almost equally swift consolidation of the market, this will prove to be crucial information for any company of the finance industry. Additionally, when taking into account that the oncoming second wave of customers is to be divided amongst the remaining online players, the findings of this thesis will be of eminent relevance for any provider of a financial website. Towards the end of my internship with AOL I was asked to research the required success factors for finance portals as a basis for AOL s finance channel content strategy. Inexperienced Internet-users such as those of the Second Wave are likely to utilize the user-friendly and convenient service of AOL as an ISP. Therefore, it will be of vital importance for AOL to incorporate the above mentioned success factors within their service in order to increase the usage of its finance channel. At this point I would like to thank AOL, not only for the financial, but especially for the professional support, which both have simplified my task to a substantial degree as well as all others who have been kind enough to let me benefit from their knowledge in the field.
