The possibilities are staggering: Had you invested $10,000 in Cisco Systems in early 1990, your investment would not be worth $1,285.000. Similarly, a $10,000 investment made in Microsoft in 1986 would be valued at more than $1,800,000 today. How do you get in on those deals -- especially if you're not a Silicon Valley insider? How do you buy the high-tech winners and avoid the losers? How do you find the Microsofts and Ciscos of tomorrow? The answers are here, in The Gorilla Game. All you have to do is learn the rules. The Gorilla Gameÿ reveals the dynamics driving the market for high-tech stocks and outlines the forces that catapult a select number of companies to "gorilla" status -- dominating the markets they serve in the way that Microsoft dominates software operating systems and Cisco dominates hardware for data networks. Follow the rules of The Gorilla Gameÿ and you will learn how to identify and invest in the "gorilla candidates" early on -- while they are fighting for dominance in their markets and while their stock is still cheap. When the dust clears and one company clearly attains leadership in its product category, you'll reap the enormous returns that foresighted investors in high-tech companies deserve. The Gorilla Gameÿ is the latest from bestselling author Geoffrey A. Moore, one of the world's leading consultants in high-tech marketing strategy. Here you'll find the ground-breaking ideas about technology markets that made his previous books bestsellers, combined with the work of Paul Johnson, a top Wall Street technology analyst, and Tom Kippola, a high-tech consultant and highly successful private investor. Together they have discovered and played the gorilla game and now give their readers the real rules for winning in the world of high-tech investing. Step by step you'll learn how to spot a high-tech market that is about to undergo rapid growth and development; how to identify and spread investments across the potential gorillas within the market; and how to narrow your investments to the single, emerging leader -- the gorilla -- as the market matures.

Plain language, clear explanations, and a focus on practical business applications. A recent A. T. Kearny study found that information technology is the number-one item on the agendas of a majority of CEOs and boards of directors. However, while senior managers are spending more time keeping abreast of developments in IT, many remain uncomfortable making decisions concerning technology issues that they don't entirely grasp. Executive's Guide to Information Technology presents a comprehensive, nontechnical model for understanding the IT environment. Focused on the issues that are most important to upper-level managers, this book supplies the big-picture perspective needed to understand IT as a whole, while explaining how various components work together to support business functions. Without getting bogged down in details, it provides clear, comprehensible overviews of: * Networking and platform technologies * Software infrastructurE * Information management systems * Enabling technologies * Applications * Middleware, application servers, and system management technologies The future belongs to organizations with the knowledge and confidence to exploit their IT resources wisely and use them aggressively. Executive's Guide to Information Technology gives business leaders the tools they need to do both. In a business environment increasingly driven by information technology, it is essential for top-level executives to keep abreast of the latest developments in IT. They must understand how information systems can help achieve business goals and be able to use this understanding to make critical business decisions. Unfortunately, many senior-level executives find themselves at the mercy of technicians who have little grasp of business issues, focus on details rather than broader functions, and speak an arcane and mystifying language. There is a clear need for an intermediary to help executives decipher technological language, seek and get the answers that are most important from a business perspective, and develop better working relationships with IT personnel. Executive's Guide to Information Technology provides a "Rosetta stone" that makes sense of a seemingly chaotic cluster of components-a coherent, trustworthy frame of reference that lays the foundation for more effective working relationships among business executives and technology managers. This book helps executives ask better questions about IT issues and better understand the answers they receive. Using integrated models that illustrate how information technologies form an infrastructure that supports practical business uses of information, it keeps the discussion focused on matters of direct concern to executives. Understanding these models develops a stronger grasp of the evolving role IT plays within organizations and establishes a comfort zone within which managers can develop a keener comprehension of component technologies and the strategic and tactical business decisions that surround them. Whether it is read from cover to cover or consulted as a quick reference, Executive's Guide to Information Technology is an indispensable tool for CEOs, board members, COOs, CFOs, controllers, treasurers, and other business professionals who need to establish firm control of the governance, direction, and management of two of their most valuable assets: information and the technologies that support it.
