Silicon Valley and Porter's Diamond

Warm welcome to my first blog! Giving a brief introduction about myself, I am doing my bachelor's degree in Information Technology at the University of Moratuwa and also doing CIMA.

Since I come from a dual background of management and IT, I thought of applying a famous management concept to the world's largest IT industry.

Tittle of this post mentions the term "Silicon valley" which is the southern region of the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California, United States. Silicon valley is the home to many of the world's largest IT companies such as Google, Apple, Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard (HP), Cisco, Oracle, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, etc.

Porter's Diamond refers to Micheal Porter's Diamond Theory which explains how certain countries have a distinct advantage over the other countries when it comes to certain industries. For example, Germany for auto industry, Switzerland for chocolates and watches, Holland for super yachts, Italy for Fashion and Scotl…

Electronic Supply Chain Security

Folks, it's  been a while since my last blog post. Almost a year I guess. Please accept my apologies. I've been somewhat busy with my university work and last few stages of CIMA.

Security is this dark cloud that looms over e-supply chains worldwide.

The Perfect Weekend!

I was fortunate enough to visit some of the most beautiful places in Norway. Here are some memories turned into words as well as photos :)

I flew in from Copenhagen on a bright Saturday morning to Bergen. Bergen airport is small yet beautiful. It doesn’t fail to impress you! Once you find your way out, you take the bus from the airport to the city center. I had my next train around 12.50 PM. So, the best way to utilize the 3-hour transit was to take the Fløibanen funicular to the top of Mount Fløyen.

It’s a 10-minute walk from the central bus station to Fløibanen where you take the funicular. When I got there around 10.30 AM (by the way, it’s a nice walk from the station), there was a long queue of about 200 people waiting to buy a ticket. Given that my train was at 12.50 PM, it was simply not possible to go through the queue and purchase the ticket. The Jim Neutron in me came up with a work-around – purchase the ticket online and fast forward to the front of the queue! So, I joined the…
