iPhone at IVK Case Analysis Q1: How would you advise Jim Barton to proceed? My first advise to Barton with how to proceed would be to gather the facts necessary to make an informed and intelligent decision for the business.

Apple relies on proprietary standards for their hardware, software and service product offerings, allowing Apple to control which services can be made available via their phones and the apps are available via their App Store. This also allows them to limit which apps are allowed for sale, thus locking out their competitors from Apple’s customers. For example, Apple disallowed a Google Voice voicemail management program app for the iPhone, citing privacy concerns with the app. On the positive side, however, retaining such control also ensures a level of app quality by enforcing design standards that make the user experience familiar no matter what Apple device the app is being used with. This symbiotic relationship between the App Store and the devices that can access the App Store has driven Apple’s growth and success thus far and is the core of Apple’s mobile app dominance.

Toyota employees see their purpose as threefold: making cars, making cars better, and teaching everyone how to make cars better. Toyota is integrating its assembly plants around the world into a single giant network. They can build a wide variety of models much more inexpensively. That means it will be able to fill market niches as they emerge without building whole new assembly operations. And with consumers increasingly fickle about what they want in a car, such market agility gives Toyota a huge competitive edge.
Currently Apple is a dominant force in the market of mobile, music and computers and with each generation wanting more of these Apple products, there is no sign of them slowing down.

Apple and Microsoft have collaborated in the past , when Microsoft invested $150 million in Apple and gave software to Macs while Apple in return made their mobile devices compatible with the Microsoft Windows OS. The popular search engine Google has the main goal of allowing users to search the web through their search engine for free.

On the other hand, Blue Sky will only accept such vehicle control unit on the condition that the Prime’s IP be owned by them, if not, the former will outsource other providers that would offer the whole package – the component and the IP.
