second position in the notebook segment, in both cases displacing IBM to No. 5 in desktops and No. 3 in notebook satisfaction. Market Impact No news is good news for Dell [NASDAQ:DELL]. Dell retains its position at the top of the TBR rankings. Sometimes, you try and you try, but you do get satisfaction. Compaq [NYSE:CPQ], with its recent efforts toward improving customer service and satisfaction, has pulled away from the rest of the pack and stands alone with rival Dell. Dell & Compaq are also virtually
How Do You Categorize Notebooks?
The notebook computer market has become one of the remaining battlegrounds for computer manufacturers. Our purpose here is to define the notebook market
25, 2000 Overview The notebook computer market has become one of the remaining battlegrounds for computer manufacturers. The Intel-based server market has consolidated to four major manufacturers (Compaq, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, and IBM). The desktop PC market, although highly competitive, has seen similar consolidation, and the breadth of offerings has narrowed in recent years. The nearest thing to vitality here was the advent of two products: (1) the Internet/Information appliance, which is still in its

as being ideal for notebook computers and other mobile systems that require long battery life. In addition to the battery life issue, Crusoe utilizes Mobile Linux , a scaled-down version of the increasingly popular Linux OS, and something Transmeta calls Code Morphing software, which allows the processor to be compatible with x86-based applications. Microsoft does not expect the Tablet to ship until 2003 Market Impact This is interesting on a number of levels. If these products ever become a reality,

Previously, company representatives limited the exposure of internal data to outsiders and bridged the communications gap. But four trends arising from the nature of e-business expose and aggravate data quality issues, threatening revenue growth, online collaboration and relationships. It's important for businesses to understand these challenges and the

Affairs announced that a notebook computer containing the names, birthdates, Social Security numbers and limited health information of 26.5 million veterans and active-duty military personnel had been stolen. It took Veteran s Affairs officials more than two weeks to publicly disclose the breach. The laptop, stolen from the data analyst working for VA, became part of the largest data breach in U.S. history. The theft prompted a series of hearings in the U.S. Congress that criticized the VA s data

As for the rising importance of mobility investments, 70 percent of surveyed enterprises said that their mobility investments are transitioning from tactical to strategic. What performance gains did these organizations experience as a result of their enterprise mobility investment? From frontline worker productivity, to reduction in

every modern PC and notebook but also on more compact equipment such as Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) and even cellular telephones, it is possible to exchange information from any imaginable place, at any time. To extend the power of enterprise applications beyond the few, enter extended ERP solutions. Key Tenets Organizations should be prepared to collaborate, organize and extend their business systems. Some key tenets-intended to support those decisions: keeping everything in one central database
The Greening of SaaS
Traditionally, the advantage of software as a service (SaaS) is that it reduces the costs involved in installing, deploying, and supporting stand-alone software
a desktop computer or notebook PC. A Web-browser-based processing model generally falls into the thin client category, which consumes much less energy than running code on work machines, accessing local servers or other data center resources. Instead of the initial upfront acquisition costs, followed by annual renewal fees typical for traditional stand-alone client/server software, SaaS costs are usually structured at recurring periodic intervals. Not only does this help to make costs more regular and

one below the current notebook/portable segment. Part of the focus is on lowering TCO 1 , since some estimates place TCO of networked Windows PCs at approximately $10,000/year. Although Gartner estimates Palm TCO at an unexpectedly high $2700/year (a figure we question), this figure is still significantly lower than for the traditional desktop. The ability of a Palm device to link with enterprise-class applications such as ERP 2 or groupware, if successfully implemented, means the Palm can now move
Transmeta to Intel/AMD: Eat Our Dust
Transmeta’s CEO says his company has a five-year lead on Intel’s and AMD’s technology. Reality or hype? And does it matter?
they're presently targeting the notebook segment, but we're not sure where they'll go beyond that. Ditzel is (presently) content to stay out of the server and desktop market, and focus on the notebook and mobile devices. We think Crusoe will have greater success in the notebook market - mobile devices (Palm, Pocket PC, and the like) have a number of processors already available, and it's unclear that the extra battery life is a big selling feature for the smaller devices.

Fundamental Shift in Computing: Cloud 1 vs. Cloud 2 Salesforce.com is the first solely cloud-based company to exceed US$1.4 billion in revenues with over 77,300 corporate customers of all sizes. Possibly the best example of the pace of change in technology would be that even the Amazon.com, Google , and eBay metaphors of the early 2000s look a bit dated today in comparison

counterpart in the Armada notebook line should allow easy transport of data between the notebook and appliance. Compaq is also focusing on deployment speed (how quickly a customer can be up and productive) and extended product life (up to a year vs. the typical 90 days for a Celeron CPU), although we do not necessarily see the one-year timeframe as being a killer benefit. On the negative side: Compaq announced this product as an Internet Device, but this appears to be just a stripped-down PC. For
