The skeptics should have remembered that David slew Goliath—not the other way around. Fifty Homegrown Champions (Located at the end of this article) Consider a few local companies that have fended off foreign competition during the past five years or more: • In Brazil, Grupo Positivo has a larger share of the PC market than either Dell or Hewlett-Packard, and Totvs is the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software leader in the small- and midsize-company market, ahead of the world’s largest business software provider, SAP. • In China, daily use of the search engine Baidu exceeds that of Google China by fourfold; QQ, from instant-message leader Tencent, is ahead of MSN Messenger; and online travel service Ctrip has held off Travelsky, Expedia’s eLong.com, and Travelocity’s Zuji.com. • In India, Bharti Airtel has taken on Hutchison Telecom, which sold its Indian operations to Vodafone in 2007, and emerged as the leader in the cellular telephone market. • In Mexico, Grupo Elektra, which has created one of the country’s biggest retail networks, has taken the battle to Wal-Mart. • In Russia, Wimm-Bill-Dann Foods is the biggest producer of dairy products, ahead of Danone and Coca-Cola. The local companies’ success doesn’t augur well for the developed world’s corporations, many of which are seeking growth and profits in emerging markets. Two-thirds of respondents to a......

Case Study of Tencent’s E-Commerce Strategy

...Case study of Tencent’s E-commerce Strategy Executive Summary Tencent’s E-commerce strategy didn’t work well. The company’s core business is QQ which is an online instant messenger. All of tencent’s other business will be rolled out base upon the QQ. They want people who use QQ can also shop online easily. So they made the strategy according to that point. They developed E-commerce websites which made no difference with Taobao and Tmall but didn’t make them to success. Why does this happen? What’s Tencent’s strategy? Introduction As Tencent announced to take 15% stake of JD.com[1], which is the largest online retailer of China, in March 2014, it also implicated the failure of Tencent’s previous e-commerce strategy. In the meantime, Tencent almost sold all of its own e-commerce business to JD, including Paipai marketplace(C2C) and QQwanggou(B2C), logistic assets and personnel, as well as part interest of 51Buy.com.This combination shows that Tencent has completely given up its own e-commerce business which were created by its own team in 2005. On the one hand, Tencent is the fourth-largest Internet company in the world whose market value has reached about US$ 150 billion in 2014 which means it has sufficient cash stockpile. On the other hand, it’s a giant company which has developed diverse and abundant online business including IM, game, search engine, social network, video and portal. Without shortage of money or resources, it seems a little confused for Tencent’s......

There his job gave him an awareness of the possibility of practical software’s research and development.He and four friends founded Tencent in 1998(Petruso, 2006). They felt sodifficult at the beginning as they lacked experienced employees and financial health(Petruso, 2006). What’s more, the free download of QQ attracted many young users, which created problems for them because Tencent could not afford the servers or server space(Petruso, 2006). Ma tried to sell QQ or invited more investors but he failed(Petruso, 2006).

Cycling Rapidly Through “Launch-Test-Improve” When Tencent launched the first version of the QQ reminder application, it was geared toward appointments, birthdays and anniversaries.
