...Case Case:  Google       MBA  Japan-­‐  INSY  690  (Case  Analysis  Assignment)   Student:  Lance  Shields           1. What were the key factors behind Google’s early success? • Perfecting an innovative search engine was clearly the most important factor for Google founders’ early success. Turning the keyword spam problem on the web into an opportunity by solving it while grad students at Stanford led to Sergey Brin’s and Larry Page’s now famous PageRank algorithm. Instead of counting keywords like old search engines, the founders created reliable searches through the number of websites that link to a page or “votes” to weight search result relevance. • Google focusing on the user was another trait that attracted people initially as the nononsense simple white search page and distinctive colorful logo with no ads or editorial content on the page lead to easy and fast searches that Yahoo couldn’t imitate. This is described in their first truism “Focus on the user and all else will follow” where they talk about simplicity of interface and speed of page loads. • Google delivered search results people really wanted lead to users trusting Google as they promise to not sell placement in search results to advertisers and instead rely on the “true” natural search to deliver users the content they really are looking for. At the same time, their sponsored links were relevant to the searched keywords so that......

Describe the perspective of the author(s) of the case study and possible biases of the author(s): ¶ The case was wrote by Kirsten E. Martin, the Assistant Professor of Business Administration at George Washington University, School of Business. She has her Ph.D. from Darden Graduate School of Business, University of Virginia. Her main research interests are business ethics, privacy, technology and stakeholder theory. It might be possible that she is biased towards China for their privacy restrictions and ethical values.

I have worked for an entertainment company for 8 years and my boss taught me to always do the right thing.

...Vraag 1. What was Intel’s strategy in DRAM and why did intel decline in the DRAM market? Intel was in de eerste jaren gefocussed op het produceren van circuit memory devices. De case geeft geen expliciete strategie. Wel wordt er geconstateerd dat er sprake is van een omvangrijke markt. De strategie van Intel lijkt vooral innovatie gedreven. Zij zijn de eerste die een 1K DRAM chip kunnen fabriceren doordat zij experimenteerde met drie alternatieve fabricatietechnologien. Ook de latere ontwikkeling van de EPROM en de Microprocessor ondersteunen deze stelling. De case geeft aanwijzingen dat er redelijke barriers of entry aanwezig zijn door de hoge investeringskosten en door de noodzaak tot cross-patent licensing. Doordat de productieprocessen van de concurrentie (vooral de Japanners) vergeleken met die van Intel al geavanceerder waren kon Intel de innovatie en prijsontwikkelingen niet bijbenen. Dit werd mede veroorzaakt door de goede relaties met toeleveranciers van apparatuur, waardoor de Japanners grotere procesvoordelen konden behalen. Om in termen van ‘Porter’ te spreken: De frontier in deze industrie was nog ver weg. Daardoor was het nog mogelijk om zowel op prijs als kwaliteit voordelen te behalen. Op de lange termijn is dit geen ‘echte’ strategie, maar vooral focus op ‘operational excellence’. Vraag 2. How were they able to create a competitive advantage in microprocessors? What are the threats to sustainability? De belangrijkste wijze waarop intel in de eerste Jaren...

...Google Inc. JT Velasco  Dr. Brian Collin BUS302 May 3, 2015 Founded in 1998 by two Stanford University Ph.D. students, the very popular search engine, Google, is a name that plays on the word google- the number represented by a 1 followed by 100 zeroes- a reference to the huge amount of data online. With 200 million daily searches, the company has turned a profit by focusing on searches alone and not adding other services. By focusing on plain text, avoiding ads, and using sophisticated search algorithms, Google provides a fast and reliable service. Perhaps, the ultimate sign of success, the brand is now often used as a verb- “to google” is to search online. Google provides various internet products and services like Gmail, Google Maps, Google Earth, Google News, and Google Books just to name a few. The company’s mission is “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” (Google History & Trivia). Today, Google Inc. is awarded as the “Best Company Work For” by Fortune Magazine and the “Great Place to Work Institute” in the year 2014. This certainly describes the importance of Google as the company where people want to work. The company wants it to be a place which brings smart, talented people from diverse background, who could bring whole self to work. There has to be some qualities in the employees that make the company such a success. The qualities are, expertise, taking responsibility for solving complex problems......

Case Analysis of Google Inc 2014

...MEMO Date: June 25, 2015 To: From: Re: The Google Giant Google’s distinct governance structure, corporate culture, and organizational processes are key factors in Google’s success in the search engine services industry. All three of these aspects of the organization have allowed Google to capitalize on superior innovation and ultimately obtain the majority of the market share worldwide. Overall, the structure, culture, and processes have proven to strengthen Google’s market share and core competencies. However, it is also important to consider the weaknesses associated with these factors. Google’s governance structure for top management consists of the ownership of one-third of the shares but control over 80% of the votes. Although top management only owns one-third of the company, their control over 80% of the votes allows them to stay in control of Google’s future and prevents potential takeovers from investors. In Google’s case, this structure has proven to be a success, as top management has a clear vision for Google and has been able to capitalize on their independence from investors to date. This structure also allows for a significant amount of investment in Google (another two-thirds), without giving up decision control (only 20%). A potential weakness associated with this structure is that with only 20% of votes available to investors, it might be challenging for Google to find proper investors, as they’d simply act as a passenger. However,......

...KERRY HERMAN Google Inc. Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. — Google’s mission statement yo In December 2005, Google paid $1 billion for a 5% stake in Time Warner’s America Online (AOL) unit. The implied $20 billion valuation for AOL came as a surprise; JPMorgan had recently valued the unit at $13.7 billion.1 However, the partnership was important to Google, which had signed a fiveyear deal to continue providing web search results and search-based advertising to AOL, as it had done since 2002. Google was expected to earn about $600 million in gross advertising revenue from AOL searches in 2005.2 The share of ad revenue that Google would pay to AOL was not disclosed, but seemed likely to exceed the 85-90% estimated for the prior deal.3 No tC op In addition to its $1 billion equity investment, Google would provide a $300 million credit for ads on Google promoting Time Warner products and would showcase Time Warner content in a special box on some Google search results pages. Critics complained about reports that Google would provide Time Warner with information about its search algorithms in order to help its partner’s pages secure higher positions in search results. Commenting on Google’s accommodations to AOL, author John Battelle said: “Each of them represents a step closer to a slippery slope. What they are giving away is the perception in the market place that Google isn’t......

...Google, Inc. Definition of the problem: Google’s initiative to enter the Chinese market has been the topic of many arguments from different parties, from shareholders to Human Rights organizations and the actual Chinese government. Google’s image and reputation in the media, investors and users’ minds has been deeply harmed in 2006 at the launch of Google.cn. Google core mission is to make the world’s information available to the greatest number of people possible. And offer this service freely & easily. But Google also strongly stands behind the importance of user privacy. Although their refusal to provide the mandated user information to the U.S. Justice Department created a contradiction to what consumers now perceived of Google after its entry in the Chinese market it did not protect the company from suffering a staggering fall in their stock prices (-7.5% on January 11, 2005). This situation and the unprecedented disappointing fourth quarter final numbers had numerous financial specialists thinking about the possibility that Google had at last lost its exponential growth and momentum since its conception in 1998. Moreover, investors were pondering whether their mantra of “Don’t Be Evil” would have the ability to uphold their beliefs and company values while developing internationally or not. The company’s executives and founders also have to face the issue of the services that they provide in China (Gmail, blogging services, etc.) as the Chinese government...

...Google Inc. 1. What were the key factors behind Google’s early success? There are many key factors behind the Google’s early success. First, the sophisticated and innovative algorithm developed for Google search engine is obviously a key factors for its early success. The new algorithm offered the users with relevant search result and provided the advertisers with advertizing spots in industry related websites. The founders developed a search engine that weighed the search result relevance according to the number of website kinked to that page. More linked websites means more relevant results. Another important factor is the customer oriented strategy, instead of the content oriented, that provided users with a simple easy to use white search page with only the logo and the search box and giving the result lists in text format. This enabled Google’s page to open faster than major competitors, such as Yahoo and Bing, and to provide user friendly results free from advertizing. By delivering relevant search results and not imposing the advertizing but prosing search related products or services, Google succeeded in gaining the trust of internet users and the confidence of the advertisers as their ads were more precisely targeting customers. Moreover, the effectiveness of Google in monetizing the web search and generating huge revenues is also an important, if not the most important, key success factor. Using similar model to the cost per impression developed by Overture,......
