Question 1:

Examine the growth strategies of Tata Sky over the years.

Answer:

Tata Sky was launched in 2006. It is one of the leading India-based Direct To Home (DTH) service provider. It has crossed three million connections mark in a period of 20 months. Therefore, it is the fastest growing direct-to-home service provider across the globe. It is a joint venture between Tata Group with 80% stake and STAR Group with 20% stake.

It currently offers more than 196 channels and few interactive ones; the count includes few numbers of HD channels offered by Tata Sky called as Tata Sky - HD and interactive services. Tata Sky has tied with Aamir Khan as its brand ambassador. Aamir Khan features all Tata Sky brand and product communication such as advertisements in TV, print and radio. Tata Sky has targeted to have about eight million connections by 2012.

The direct-to-home (DTH) industry in India currently has about 30 million subscribers and six players. It is assumed to grow to 60 million subscribers by the end of 2013 despite the fact that the industry faces several issues such as low average revenue per user (ARPU), high cost of acquisition of content and subscribers, and various taxes such as entertainment tax and service tax. In India, approximately 12 million set-top boxes are sold annually.

While the DTH industry is working on new ideas, one of its areas of concern has been the availability of sufficient bandwidth, which would allow a DTH operator to telecast more than 500 channels. Some companies are working with DTH operators to develop two-three satellites to increase their capacity.…...

...Bobby Bolin 9/19/12 Into The Sky For thousands of years, we have gazed into the sky in quandary about cosmic phenomena. Cavemen, peasants, kings and astronomers could do nothing more but hypothesize the mysteries of outer space and the universe. It was not until the 17th century did astronomers create the telescope to see more than just the naked eye however, the Mesopotamians recorded constellations that still exist in modern day age today. Our desires to find extraterrestrial life and answer cosmic phenomena will ascent our technology beyond belief in many years to come. Decades ago, astronomers believed that our solar system was the only one that existed though there was still a dire explanation sought of the galaxies: are there any other habitable planets out there? What was the history and chemistry of our planets thousands of years ago? These questions inspire our most ambitious endeavors of space and Mars exploration and moon landings. With Mars being a planet with extreme similarities such as: mountains, canyons, rocks, dry river valleys, polar ice caps and water in the clouds. If we could understand the geological history of Mars, it would be a step closer that grants limitless technology and opportunity. The Kepler mission is another huge endeavor for which we are now able to detect other planet that orbit other stars; in essence, we have found other solar systems other than our own that habitable. This, just like other discoveries, is leading us one step closer...

Bargaining power of DTH operator with CPE supplier has increased due to supply. Transponder is provided by Astrix, ISRO hence dependency exists and due to no regulations in channel pricing, DTH operators are at mercy of Broadcasters. Bargaining Power of Buyer-High Consumer has the power to choose in this industry with variety. Unless players can differentiate against each other, the market shall remain mostly homogeneous. Customers will have high bargaining power and will be influenced by costs versus services. Threat of Substitutes- Medium DTH faces major competition from Terrestrial, Cable & IPTV. Doordarshan is world’s largest Terrestrial broadcaster with over 1400 transmitters and covering 88% of India geographical area. They offer Digital service in collaboration with BBC resources. This wide reach and low cost approach are offset by its lack of attractive content. Cable TV operates in 2 modes: CASwhich requires separate set top box and Non Addressable system.

...Executive Memo To: TATA Motors Limited Senior Management From: MBS Group TATA Date: 29 September 2014 Re: Game Embedded Strategy Dear TATA Motors Senior Management, This memo accompanies the presentation given on 15 September 2014 which put forward a case for TATA’s senior management to adopt Game Embedded Strategy (GEMS). The objective is to address the key points of the game dimension for TATA and to offer a set of recommendations focusing on evolution of the game in the future. The game dimension discussed in the memo follows framework T/3, type, technology and time approach, which encompasses the game dimension for the Indian geographical region for low cost compact cars between 2009 to 2014. Background – What Market Should TATA Be In? TATA Motors entered the market of low cost compact cars by introducing the cheapest car in the world with the famous “Tata Nano” in April 2009 at $2,400. With Maruti Suziki India Ltd as the Dominant Incumbent and near rival holding a 49% majority market share of the passenger car market in India, Hyundai Motor India Ltd holding 21% market share, the continued threat of Nissan (1.2%) and Ford India as the Extant Incumbent player with 2.3% market share, TATA Motors played the game against its competitors as the first mover by launching the first ever car of this price range. TATA were thus in an oligopoly market and by using historic data on competitors are able to predict how these competitors will behave with 78% probability,......

As we talk about DTH which stands for Direct-To-Home, it's a system that allows you to have a personal dish antenna how cable operators do, except it's much smaller in size, this antenna can be fixed on your terrace and receives transmissions directly from a satellite, hence it is called as a direct to home service. Direct to home is different in the way of size of the antenna require is much smaller, the city will have less wires from one building to another and you have the flexibility of moving out without searching for new cable operators.

Depending on the customer base and loyalty, different people will have different imagery of DTH.

...Vertical View A Nano Car in Every Driveway? How to Succeed in the Ultra-Low-Cost Car Market Henry Ford’s historic promise in 1908 to “build a car for the great multitude” resulted in the production of more than 15 million Model Ts and created unprecedented mobility for consumers everywhere. Will India’s Tata Motors deliver on its equally bold promise to a new generation of consumers to bring the Nano to market for the “great multitude” at a price of $2,500? T o fulfill his promise “to build a car small enough for the individual to run and care for, [of ] the simplest designs that modern engineering can devise, [and] low in price,” Henry Ford exploited innovative product design, vendor relationships, manufacturing techniques and distribution methods. One hundred years later, entrants into the ultra-low-cost car (ULCC) market have the same agenda in their attempt to build a car with a price tag of $2,500 to $5,000, which is lower in comparable dollars than Henry Ford’s $850 Model T. Vertical View But this is not a history lesson that can be easily repeated. Today, all indicators point to an automotive industry in recession, requiring its leaders to balance the global economic crisis with future market demand. Industry consolidation and restructuring in global markets will accelerate, propelled by the lack of availability to capital and consumer financing, high fuel costs and low consumer confidence. Undoubtedly, a new and improved......

...The Tata Corus merger has made Tata Steel the fifth largest steel manufacturer in the world. This is the biggest foreign takeover by an Indian company. Tata and Corus are both happy with the merger and Tata steel is likely to reap many benefits from this deal. The Tata Corus merger has earned Indian steel giant the status of the fifth largest steel manufacturer of the world. Described as the biggest foreign takeover by an Indian firm by BBC, the deal was values at an estimated $11 billion. The two parties had agreed at a value of 455 pence per share of Corus. Earlier in 1999, Corus was formed by a merger of Hoogovens, a Dutch group and British Steel. Tata steel, on the other hand has been India's leading steel manufacturer. Corus had held discussion with Indian, Russian and Brazilian firms for this merger. The ultimate deal with Tata was described as "the right partner at the right time at the right price and on the right terms" by Jim Leng the chairman of Corus. For the Tata chairman Ratan Tata it was a "defining moment. As a part of the deal Tata also contributed to the Corus pension fund. The Tata Corus merger is expected to provide an estimated $400 million worth of savings to Tata Steel in three years time. The estimated savings till March 2008 is 130 million dollars. A prime reason for such high volumes of savings is the availability of cost saving technology through this acquisition. According to Mr. B. Muthuraman, managing director of Tata Steel, a breakthrough......
