The basic rules of market penetration

The basic rules of market penetration

  • In each market segment, there is an entry barrier protecting the incumbent players.

  • For a new comer to enter and profit from the market segment, it has TWO strategies to choose from:

    • Be better at the established games

    • Re-establish the rule of the game

  • If it cannot do either of them, its return will be ZERO.

  • PRC Market Engagement Rule No. 1: Don't commit the "China Myth" fallacy.


The x86 landscape the critical success factors for the incumbent vendors

The x86 landscape: the critical success factors for the incumbent vendors

  • Horizontal specialization:

    • Application: ISVs with well-trained Windows or Linux skills

    • OS: Microsoft Windows, Linux

    • Hardware: Dell, HP, IBM boxes with Intel Chip

    • Services: Dell, HP, IBM Nation-wide service network

  • Economy of scales, delivering high quality solution & service at very low cost:

    • Application: Microsoft's back-office suite. Easy to deploy.

    • OS: Windows, Linux training organizations everywhere.

    • Hardware: relentless driving down costs in every aspects

    • Service: blex-style national service network


The unix risc landscape the critical success factors for the incumbent vendors

The Unix/RISC landscape: the critical success factors for the incumbent vendors

  • Vertical specialization:

    • Application: Highly trained ISVs for mission-critical apps

    • OS: Each vendor owns its own OS, Sun/Solaris, IBM/AIX, HP/UX

    • Hardware: Each vendor owns its own chip/box, Sun/Sparc, IBM/p5, HP/PA-RISC

    • Services: Limited service coverage

  • Very high System Performance & RAS delivered at high cost:

    • Application: ISV self-developed IP

    • OS: Solaris/AIX/UX specialization

    • Hardware: relentless driving up performance benchmark

    • Service: turn-key service by ISV/SI


Two opposing forces at the point of contention

Two opposing forces at the point of contention:

Unix/RISC vendor's DNA: strong

vendor-direct ISV support

ISV 32-bit Apps

64-bit Apps

S10x64

Apps

Open Source Linux/Microsoft Windows

Solaris

S10x64

Sparc

Galaxy

Dell/HP/IBM

X86 vendor's definite cost leadership through economy of scale


X86 market share based strategy push for hardware volume regardless of the os

“x86 market-share”-based strategy:push for hardware volume regardless of the OS

X86 vendor's definite cost leadership through economy of scale


X86 market share based strategy the 1 st sun prc opteron key account project in perspective

"x86 Market-share"-based strategythe 1st Sun PRC Opteron Key Account Project in perspective

“Hi All

XXXX finally won the xxxxxx PC-Cluster project, the final

price is about RMB 2,580,000.00.

Our final proposed price is 2,680,000.00. We have no space to

reduce our price again and again. So we lost the deal."

A simple e-mail from our Acc Mgr:

Remarks:

- we "won" the 1st bid at NEGATIVE 23% margin

- we "lost" the 2nd bid at NEGATIVE 30% margin

- how much can we afford to "win" at NEGATIVE margin


X86 market share based strategy

“x86 market-share”-based Strategy

  • Pros:

    • Rapid volume pick up

  • Cons:

    • Playing to x86 vendors' horizontal strength

      • Cost leadership

    • Need large sum of margin-relief

    • Before the volume & its associated support infrastructure reach a critical mass, we are still in a non-defensible position, i.e., can be replaced by a simple price drop from Dell/HP/IBM

    • Solaris Sparc unable to reinforce the Linux/Windows-based Galaxy position


S10x64 isv apps conversion based strategy

S10x64 ISV Apps conversion-based Strategy

- Cherry-pick top Lintel/Wintel ISVs in 14 cities and in 20 accounts

- Provide 1-on-1 sales and technical support on S10x64 design-win

- End-to-end hand-holding through design-win & go-to-market

S10x64 isv apps conversion based strategy1

S10x64 ISV Apps conversion-based Strategy

  • Pros:

    • Playing to Unix/RISC vendor's vertical strength

      • Cut the x86 market into vertical segments

      • Horizontal player become defenseless

    • One ISV/app at a time to establish defensible positions

    • Create beachhead for Solaris Sparc reinforcement

  • Cons:

    • Slow volume curve for Galaxy
