Apple’s Foreplay In-Car Lures Powerful Partners Into A 5-STAR Business Network

About 5-STAR Business Network

Owners of cars made by a range of manufacturers such as Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo will be able to voice-command their vehicles using iOS devices this year.

Apple will unveil CarPlay, the integrated infotainment system, at the 83rd Geneva Motor Show, which takes place from Mar 6 to 16, 2014.

The first ever Apple integration into cars will be showcased, with vehicles effectively becoming “the second screen for the iPhone”, according to Frank Gillett, an analyst at Forrester Research.

The first ever Apple integration into cars will “We’re looking at the coming together of some of the most powerful brands on earth,

The Modern Rules Of 5-STAR Business Network.

Apple – the most valuable brand – is leading the change in automobile entertainment by using its attractive installed base and business networks”, says Vivek Sood, CEO of Global Supply Chain Group.

At a glance, the new system will give drivers a familiar iOS interface for maps, music and Siri-based voice controls while incorporating standard knobs, dials and buttons in the car.

Other basic phone functions can also be accessed, such as making calls, messaging as well as a host of third-party apps.

“CarPlay lets drivers use their iPhone in the car with minimized distraction,” Greg Joswiak, Apple’s marketing vice president for iPhone and iOS, said in the statement.

Understanding The Background Of 5-STAR Business Network.

Currently, CarPlay will only support the latest generation of the iPhone, which means iPhone 5, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, and will be available as an update to iOS 7.

A report by Accenture in December says consumers are increasingly looking at in-car technology as the deal-breaker, even more than power and speed as their first consideration.

“Apple again has seized the spotlight, after signalling its attempt with the iPod and car audio systems a decade ago, and then fine-tuning its product family before finally announcing “We’re ready””, says Sood, who also writes the book “5-Star Business Network”.

Other carmakers expected to follow suit include big names such as BMW, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia Motors, Mitsubishi, Nissan, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota.

In December 2013, Google announced the plan to work with Audi in developing a similar system. However, nothing has been heard since.

Google’s Android OS has also come under intense competition with the upcoming launch of Ubuntu-run smartphones and Samsung’s decision to ditch Android for Tizen in its smartwatches.

OUTPERFORM OUTSOURCE OUTPROFIT

The trend of outsourcing continues to grow unabated with the whole gamut of services, from simple to mission-critical tasks. There is not a single company on earth that does not outsource anything. It is not just about cost arbitrage, it is also a finer expression of division of labour at the organisational level. Like all leverage, outsourcing is a double-edged sword too. On one hand, it allows you to do more, faster. On the other hand, if it goes bad, it can easily kill your business. If you do not believe that is possible – you can google the Fox Meyer saga from the 90s and see for yourself.

GREEN SUPPLY CHAIN – AN ACTION MANIFESTO

It is generally accepted that environmental consciousness is now changing to environmental proactiveness as organizations are discovering that it makes good commercial sense.

Boards are asking the management to review their policies related to environmental norms, not only to bolster their corporate social responsibility aims, but also because consumers are asking for greener supply chains

It is also widely agreed that consumers will increasingly prefer to buy more and even pay more for products or services provided in an environmentally sound manner.
