Overview

Waves of Power provides a clear and concise examination of how the convergence of computers, communications, and consumer electronics will fundamentally change global competition in what is now the world's most important industry. Why has the $500 billion computer industry always been dominated by a few U.S., European, and Japanese vendors like IBM, Microsoft, and Intel? How will this pattern of dominant vendor leadership change as the Information Technology (IT) industry moves into a new, network-centric era?

These are just a few of the intriguing issues addressed in this "big-picture" look at the IT business. By examining the technology industry's past and future, this book enables anyone in the IT or related industries to develop a far-reaching framework with which to understand the IT industry of the 21st century.
