Industrial Economics and Strategy: Computing Platforms
May/June 1998 (vol. 18 no. 3)
pp. 43-53
In this short article, I outline a few key concepts to help understand long run economic forces for structural change and stasis in the platforms that govern behavior in the computer industry. While the primary goal for most of this discussion is to explain why things happen instead of what firms should do, I will conclude with a comparison of some standard strategic issues against the historical patterns of change in the industry.
Index Terms:
standards, economics of standards, strategic standards issues
