- Cisco’s John Chambers answers his critics: What premium pricing? –
What about the middle point about the Cisco price premium? They call it the Cisco tax.
Well, that's a little bit unfair. Do we come down Moore's Law at tremendous speed? The answer is yes. As long as you do that, customers don't have a problem with you making a premium, because if you don't make a premium, you don't develop new products. You don't protect their investment. They've all been through that.
Oh, unfair ? But you didn't answer the question
Will customers pay a premium for that? Absolutely. But, I would argue it's not a premium. I'd say [it's about} your total cost of ownership vs. your productivity. It costs a lot less.
And still didn't answer the question
- Dell mainstreams cloud servers • The Register – I never thought I would hear Dell EVER say this:
"Our focus is that these are cheaper to own, not cheaper to buy," explains Knafo. "And yes, this is a profitable business for us."
- March 24, 2001: Apple Unleashes Mac OS X | This Day In Tech | Wired.com – OS X was released on Mar 24, 2001. It's easy to forget that OS X is actually "old" because it seems, it "feels", so new. However, in the last nine year there have been SIX major versions. Compare that with Microsoft who has managed XP and Win 7.
- Infonetics Research White Paper – Another Marketing Fail from Cisco. A white paper about the so-called Borderless Networks strategy from Infonetics Research. However, the author/analyst has nothing to do with Security at all (because he is a voice person). AFAICT Borderless has nothing to do with Voice at all.
He tracks unified communication (UC), IP contact centers (IPCC), TDM and IP PBXs, Ethernet and application switches, enterprise routers, and wireless LAN and WiFi mesh equipment. He authors several quarterly mar- ket share and forecast reports and Continuous Research Service (CRS) research notes and surveys on enterprise data, voice, and UC, including a recent end-user survey on 2009 voice communication spending.
??John, are you even taking any notice ?
