After car sales, real estate sales are the best example of a business model that should have been changed by the Internet and hasn't. Houses for sale need to reach a wide audience and sales should be easy to complete. Obviously the agents don't ewant to lose their commissions and fears of the legal complexities cause most people not to try the process themselves. When a critical mass is achieved (perhaps standardized forms and processes), I predict there will be a rapid migration to internet based sales.

virtualization is important to me. I use some trusty software tools that run on DOS. The Virtual WinXP saved me for a few more years.

hello all from Edmonton, Alberta. Near perfect record of being late this week.

If there are no more questions, then let my vacation begin!!

That is an example of a new business model emerging from a new technology. It did not really replace anything that existed before. It did impact the way in whhich advertising dollars were spent, and so I guess you may be right, bbut there was no specialization phase there, it replaced the way something had been done in the past.

For much of its early life, Google had no business model to speak of.  Google was once a maddeningly unprofitable company, fumbling left and right for a stable revenue source. After making marginally profitable forays into selling search appliances to businesses and its own search technology to other search engines, Google radically changed course.

the company launched its AdWords program which allowed businesses to advertise to people searching for things on Google.com. Almost overnight, Google took the leap from popular search tool to advertising juggernaut

We repair/replace Industrial and Military electronic systems.  So, we come across a mixture of standards with flavors of customization.  So, we have to be able to adapt and possibly apply current standards to old obsolete systems.  Which can make us take place of the role of an OEM.

Author

In general, value add is "last 2 - 10%" of a customer's process - std. blocks get you 90-98 % of the way but often that's not enough

Author

Computer buses are a good example of standards that have enabled specialization;
i.e. start with a standard bus (PCIe) and then add the special card that you need.

Author

Cell phones are going this way. Pick your OS and customize your devices via Apps.

Author

Chip test industry seemed to have went through the similar pocess uisng JTAG (IEEE1149.1 and others)

Author

Rockwell's controllers are industrial computer systems and are radiation hardened..memory is self-correcting etc.

Author

just about the entire networking sector has worked this way.  SaaS depends on this paradigm as well.

Author

I think the auto industry does this a bit with shared frames and shared drive trains

Author

to the chatters: Can you think of other examples where specialization has become possible because of standardization. Please share any thought you may have in the chat window.

Author

that's before my time

Hello from Milwaukee!

hello from DFW.  As to the question, the course has been a good high-level framing of concepts and issues.  Now I'd like to get more in depth in the material.  Good job in a tough format - I used to do this and your 30 min time allocation makes it very difficult.
