In this brand new publication for EconomieMatin.fr, I aim at decrypting strategic moves in high-tech sectors through the lens of the recent acquisition of the Mobile Division of Nokia by Microsoft. In a nutshell, the present article :

1/ shows how (and to what extent) industrial economics can be predictive ;

2/ explains the rationale of current and future moves - mainly concentration and vertical integrations - on the smartphones market ;

3/ draws some lessons from later experiences in high-tech industries, especially as regards to efficient ways to manage innovation.   

I wish you compelling reading (click on the image to access the article).
