Why is 64-bit architecture an advantage? 4. Explain the new features of Windows Server 2008, such as server core, Virtualization, and PowerShell. What is the role of these features and how will they improve efficiency in administrative Windows? 5.
08/20/2012 IT221 Research Assignment 1 There are 7 total editions of Windows Server 2008: 3 Windows Server Editions and 4 Special Purpose Editions. The reason for these multiple editions is to serve a variety of users with a variety of needs. The first of the “Server” editions is named Datacenter geared towards supporting mission-critical applications. The significance of this version is the ability for Large-Scale Virtualization, workloads requiring high scalability, reliability, and availability. It will help logically consolidate servers, streamline management, and increase the availability of your systems.
Their campaign could be expressed as an equation, “Version Awareness+Product Experience = Perception Change”.

Also, their competitors are developing software outside the US, which is lowering the competition’s cost.

Competition in the notebook PC market was fierce, and Toshiba could retain its position as market leader only by relentlessly improving its manufacturing processes and lowering costs. Toshiba had some formidable advantages over its competitors, stemming largely from huge investments in such technologies as thin-film transistor (TFT) color displays, hard disk drives, lithium-ion batteries, and CD-ROM drives. In addition, by forming partnerships and joint ventures with other industry giants, Toshiba could share the risk of developing expensive new technologies. With its highly automated factories and sophisticated communication networks, Toshiba brought formidable manufacturing expertise to these alliance. A sophisticated computer network linked OME with other domestic and overseas Toshiba development and production sites.

Threat of Substitutes: Management consulting firms are one of the threats for substitution. (“Management Consultants doubled as potential clients as well as direct competitors in terms of offering digital strategy”, p.9, para 2). Another outside industry threat is the IT firms. (“Huge found itself pitching against an IT company who were offering many of the services as Huge” p.9, para 3). Another threat of substitute could be companies hiring in house people to save costs, in which case they will have to compete with them in terms of attracting talent as well.
