Apple should open up because the US and Euro zone PC makers are relatively mature. The biggest growth will continue to come in geographies like Asia and South America, in these markets, price is paramount and not the badge on the case. If you are reshaping the market, often it helps to have a closed platform initially to drive that market in a useful direction. But Apple cannot stay closed too long because open solutions will catch up and surpass it. Overtime, the limitations of the closed solutions become increasingly clear, and as people bump up against those limits, frustrations increase, and more and more effort is put towards making the open solutions better even to the point that eventually they exceed the closed solution. For Others: Do not compromise on price for quality Choose the products based on individual needs Be unique and different Conclusion It is concluded from the strategic management analysis at Apple Inc. that technological industries are never easy to compete with. They have a lot invest at R&D and have to be proactive in order to compete with their competitors in the industry. As for Apple is concerned they have been working so well as it is shown from their products. As Apple Inc. is increasing also, other businesses are increasing. They don’t need to wait for people buy their products only when they are on sale but they need to focus more on the customer support and improve the areas they have already have problems in. thus it can be concluded that Apple Inc. continue to launch its innovative products in the market, and has been a luxury brand for its existing customers. The quality of product and the design, with Porter five force model helps us in analysing the work environment of the company and what strategies can be adopted like lowering down the price of its products a bit, increasing the number of retail stores, advertising more can all be adopted to increase the sales even more in the future.
