Strategic partnership of Amazon Web Services with Airtel

Ever seen a sprint event in the Olympics? There’s an interesting thing about these races and especially the 400-meter races. The athlete who is ahead or leads in the first 100 meters doesn’t necessarily win at the end. Mostly, the one reaching the finish line first is the athlete who doesn’t look to rush from the very beginning. It’s the athlete who builds up the pace and gradually increases the speed and gives its best in the final 100 meters. Sometimes, a similar situation evolves in the corporate world between a market leader and a competitor.

Vodafone-Idea in dilemma about Adjusted Gross Revenue dues.

Sometimes, the destiny does not favor you come what may. Think of a farmer who wishes to produce a great yield of pulses this year. Suppose, another farmer acquired land just beside this farmer’s land and starts seeding pulses too. The new farmer had seeds and fertilizers in stock and started the farming process just at the right time. On the other hand, the old farmer had taken a loan to fulfill his supplies and start the process.

Airtel sprinting ahead of Jio in Q4 Result

Airtel sprinting ahead of Jio in Q4. And, a cursory view of BSE Ltd’s stock. You would have surely heard the story of the tortoise and the hare in your childhood. The telecom companies have presented a slightly distorted form of it in the fourth quarter. Consider Airtel as the tortoise and Jio as the hare. Jio entered the market (just like hare entered the race) and made tremendous sprints. Jio completely disrupted the market and almost eliminated the competition. The tortoise (Airtel) however, kept looking along and remained perseverant. Then, came Quarter 4. While Jio was busy bagging investments from firms around the globe, Airtel was focusing on growing its market share. As a result, the Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) for Airtel grew by almost 20% in the last two quarters. While, ARPU for Jio grew only around 2% in the same period. Sequentially, Airtel’s Indian business grew by (approx.) 16% whereas Jio’s revenue grew only by 6%.

Reliance-Facebook might team-up to create Super App Like We Chat

Reliance and Facebook will create a ‘Super App’ like WeChat. But, how will they do this? There is much difference between ‘normal’ and ‘super’. For something to be qualified as ‘super’, it needs to be exceptional. For example, a normal man can just see while Superman has laser vision and X-Ray vision. A computer does normal computation but a Super Computer does some of the most complex calculations, can process billions of instruction points in a second and can as well be used to launch a rocket to space. But, why are we even telling you this? Because, reportedly Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance and Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook are working together to develop a ‘Super App’. So, as we told earlier, it needs to be exceptional to be qualified as ‘Super’ and hence, you can expect a lot from the ambitious project that the two corporate giants are working upon together.

Have you ever felt that you have been an average student or an average employee at work or just an average person all through life? If yes, then I'm sure a topper seems threatening to you. But, the truth is that a topper can only replace another topper and marginally affect the status of an average student. I have always observed this and have been an average student in school.
