Two giants of Telecom, one of the fastest growing industries in India, one of the fastest growing economies in the word, are Airtel and Reliance Communication. Airtel declared its yearly results on April 29th followed by Reliance Communication on April 30th. Both the results are very good with Airtel doing better thanRCom probably. • Airtel has a net profit of Rs 7,859 crores vs RCom had a net profit of Rs 6,147 crores for the year 2008-09. • For Q4, Airtel made a net profit of Rs 2,049 crores vs RCom had Rs 1,516 crores. • Overall the verdict in the newspapers has been that Airtel has come out as a big winner!
In the statements made by Airtel they have explained their strategy going forward. They are giving importance to rural penetration and high end users. Now this is an interesting strategy by a company like Airtel, which is looking for growth in customer base and generating revenues through the existing userbase as well. By emphasizing rural markets they are paving way for the future, expanding their network throughout the country further and gearing up for the next wave of users. In the last quarter they added 8 million subscribers. In the cities they are dropping the unviable schemes offering free minutes to users, allowing competition to grab these users but instead are focusing on their core stengths, their high end users! They already have a huge userbase and now they are generating the profits from them. A very good strategy indeed!
Reliance on the other hand seems slightly on a different track. They completed the world’s largest network rollout ahead of schedule, according to Anil Ambani. They also spent $2 billion creating a GSM network in major cities. They gave out lots of free minutes to users to create an existing userbase, which Airtel said they discontinued. Reliance is cutting down on Capital Expenditure since it already has the…...

...Porters Five Forces Analysis for Industry Attractiveness- Competitive Rivalry With-in the Industry- Though there are many local and international companies in the industry, namely IOCL, HPCL, BPCL (All Government Owned), and Essar but none of them operates at the scale and integration levels which RIL operates. IOCL is selectively downward integrated, in terms of utilizing Naptha product to other Petrochemical products like PTA, MEG, PP & LLDPE, however the product range is not so diverse as RIL has. RIL on one hand has even further downward integrated its PTA & MEG product to become largest Polyester manufacturer and on the other hand PP and LLDPE production of Reliance is among the Asia’s highest. In terms of downward integration Reliance has gone beyond IOCL in aromatic products and plans to be sole player in many new products like Phenol etc. Haldia petrochemicals and another state owned firm GAIL are present in the downstream petrochemical business, however their scale of operation is non-threatening, or are hindered by feed-stock complications. Lastly the prices of fuels in India are regulated hence Reliance does not compete in domestic market in Diesel category, however it has a presence in Petrol and Aviation Fuel, and in select cases it competes. International players do not compete with Reliance, as they cannot match Reliance’s scale of operations and thus operate in non-competing niche product categories. However in some cases......

Relaince on Technology

...Abstract Our technology helps us every day to complete tasks more efficiently and allows us to connect and reach out to the world around us. While it has made our lives more comfortable it has left some people complacent and has opened up more issues in our personnel lives. Some of our advancements have robbed us of basic skills that we need to retain. Teens have become so reliant on calculators that most colleges have banned them for placement tests. Some people have become so dependent on the technology around us that they will knowingly follow it and get themselves in a life or death situation such as with Global Positioning System. With the internet in almost every home and now on our cell phones we have been introduced to new issues to think and worry about. From hackers to viruses designed to break into your home computer or a company’s computer system just to get your personnel information. The internet has made it easier for thieves to steal your identity and ruin you financially taking years to fix. Our teens spend a lot of their time on internet and in most cases social media websites, which has made it easier for pedophiles and bullies to targeting our children putting them in danger. Yes, technology is a great thing but with the advancements also come a new set of problems when we get too reliant and complacent with the technology we us. As a society we have become way too reliant on the technology around us that......

Competing on Analytics Paper Review

...expectation of rapid change in work patterns and prospects. Many current British managers no longer expect to spend most of their careers with one or two companies, but rather looks for progression through moving from employer to employer. One result of this could be the much talked of British short-termism associated by many continental European business people with UK companies. Generalisation, rather than specialisation, tends to typify the British approach - with less merit being placed on pure technical ability than in some other countries. Some commentators have quoted this tendency as one of the reasons for the demise of manufacturing in the UK over the last three decades. As with many other European countries, the UK (with a heavy relaince on the Banking and Finance sector) was badly hit by the financial crisis of 2008 and faces a painful journey back to growth and prosperity. British Business Structures UK: The board of directors is the real power broker of a British company with all key decisions being made at this level. All plc's (quoted companies) must have at least two directors who are appointed by and accountable to the shareholders. The chairperson or the CEO leads the board. Many of the UK's larger companies have 'non-executive' directors who act as outside, impartial experts, as well as often providing links with government and the civil service. This usage of 'non-executive' directors has some parallels with the continental European two-tier......

...infrastructure, but may not be able to transfer the cost to the subscriber if this rule is passed through. Given this, from Idea’s perspective, if the circle license is not retained, this entire piece of revenue, although not very large may prove to have an impact on the Company’s balance sheet. (since instead of proving to be a revenue for one circle and expense to the other, in case of impacted circles – there would be no revenue realized and all the other circles will continue to show this as an outflow to another operator) Porter's 5 Forces Analysis Threat of Rivalry Today there is a huge competition from between telecom companies to be ahead of each other. There are government companies like BSNL and MTNL , private companies like Relaince, Vodafone, Airtel and Tata. Top threats come from Bharti and Vodafone whereas in the 7 circles – even Reliance could be a potential threat Threat to New Entrants It comes as no surprise that in the capital-intensive telecom industry the biggest barrier to entry is access to finance. To cover high fixed costs, serious contenders typically require a lot of cash. When capital markets are generous, the threat of competitive entrants escalates. When financing opportunities are less readily available, the pace of entry slows. Meanwhile, ownership of a telecom license can represent a huge barrier to entry. There is also a finite amount of "good" radio spectrum that lends itself to mobile voice and data applications. In addition, it......
