The Intel’s Double Whammy And Why Splitting Into Design and Manufacturing Looks Better
Intel Corp was legendary for decades as it pursued its strategy of designing microchips and manufacturing them in-house. For decades, that integration served well and Intel became the category-king, winning over competitors like AMD. But Intel faces a double whammy: losing the edge on design to Nvidia (and Qualcomm, AMD, etc) on GPU and mobile chipsets; and lagging on manufacturing capabilities to TSMC and Samsung. But in a recent update, from the incoming new Intel boss, Intel noted that it would continue its old strategy: design chips and make them in-house even though in some cases, it could outsource the… The post The Intel’s Double Whammy And Why Splitting Into Design and Manufacturing Looks Better appeared first on Tekedia.

Challenges of Small-Scale Businesses in Nigeria
People are encouraged to start businesses, no matter how little, instead of searching for jobs they might not find. In Nigeria today, small-scale businesses are springing up in every nook and cranny, providing sources of livelihood to many Nigerians. This is an encouraging development, especially when considering how many people they will remove from the labour market. Even the government has set up several intervention programmes to encourage small and medium enterprises (SMEs). However, many small scale business owners are passing through a lot of difficulties and many of them have closed down their businesses as a result of these… The post Challenges of Small-Scale Businesses in Nigeria appeared first on Tekedia.

Limited Velocity On The Forbes Africa’s Richest Africans
The velocity of wealth in Africa is very low. Two decades ago, Forbes (global) had the Walmart heirs within the 3rd to 6th positions as America’s richest people. But today, most of them have disappeared from the top league. Sure, Gates, Buffet and some regulars remain.  But you can see movements with Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Zuckerberg, etc coming up. But the Forbes Africa list is pure and plain static with no movement. Nigerian billionaires – Aliko Dangote, Mike Adenuga and Abdul Samad Rabiu – are on the list. There is no women in this year’s ranking. Technology-anchored super-wealth remains… The post Limited Velocity On The Forbes Africa’s Richest Africans appeared first on Tekedia.

The Central Bank of Nigeria’s Big Threat On Nigerian Exporters
The Central Bank of Nigeria is always fighting moving targets. The latest is that the apex bank wants to bar exporters who do not repatriate their export proceeds from banking services. I am happy the CBN now understands the “voodoo”  in the system where some companies exist to “export” exchange rate arbitration and make turns of money on it.  Nigerian exporters that have not repatriated export proceeds will be barred from all banking services from Jan. 31, the central bank said. The new directive applies to exports up until June last year, central bank spokesman, Osita Nwanisobi said by text… The post The Central Bank of Nigeria’s Big Threat On Nigerian Exporters appeared first on Tekedia.
