Aegis Analytical Corporation was founded in 1995 by Gretchen L. Jahn and Justin O. Neway founded Process Manufacturing provide software and consulting services for pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers. Aegis developed a software that quickly compile different data in a single report. Within minutes, the program develops reports on drug testing and processing quality, which could take months before to compile. With a target group of large pharmaceutical manufacturers, Aegis knew it faced a challenge, “in the door” of the company and convince you that their software would Aegis and around for a while. To assist in marketing, two Aegis formed alliances with two companies that sell complementary products and manufactured pharmaceutical manufacturing companies. Although there were benefits to the partnership with these divisions of Honeywell and Rockwell, especially the visibility and credibility that these great names available, developed many disadvantages. Most important is that the Aegis was just one of many products that Honeywell or Rockwell would promote. Although there were incentives designed to promote Honeywell and Rockwell Aegis of the product to promote, after a year of strategic alliance had not conducted a sale of Aegis software. Aegis founders were still faced with decisions about whether they with one or both of the alliances. If they chose to the alliances that she could do as a small business to their much larger partners to promote the Aegis encourage further product? If they want to terminate the covenants, they can only rely on their internal sales staff to promote appropriate and sell their products? What would be the impact on their reputation not through partnership with Rockwell and Honeywell to be? Another option might be to try to build new alliances? If so, what steps should you take to increase the likelihood of…...

...Analytical Response to Male Pregnancy Male Pregnancy by Dick Teresi and Kathleen McAuliffe support that the technology and the demand for male pregnancy will be possible in the future. They specifically state that, "Someday a man will have a baby". They have written this article in an attempt to show why they believe this will one day become accepted and widely practiced. However, I disagree with Teresi and McAuliffe. I feel male pregnancy will never be freely practiced or accepted by any means. Teresi and McAuliffe start out their article by explaining what their general idea is for male pregnancy to occur. They state, "What we're talking about is implanting an embryo into a man's abdominal cavity, where the fetus would take nourishment, grow to term, and be delivered by an operation similar to a cesarean section. Already, this idea seems illogical to me. As a result of a man being pregnant, there must be a cesarean section to remove the baby. Even for women, this is a risk doctors prefer to avoid if possible. It puts the mother at a much greater risk of inj... ... middle of paper ... ...lt Teresi and McAuliffe's arguments for pursuing the technology of male pregnancies is not strong enough to actually do further research in the area.

Aegis Case Summary

...Strategic Management Aegis Case Analysis The main question posed in this case is whether Aegis management should continue the relationships with their partners ProPack and POMS, and if they decided to continue with the relationships, how to structure them more effectively. Operating in a slumping economy, Aegis was worried about their level of sales resulting from the partnerships they had entered into. The main goal for Aegis when entering into both partnerships was to bolster sales, and neither company had accomplished that. With the possibility of terminating either relationship, Aegis would have to find another strategy for improved sales. With the absence of this strategy, it will be more productive for the company to restructure their existing relationships. Looking at this case through the concept of strategic alliances will help to find a strategy that will pull Aegis out of its downhill slide. For both relationships, Aegis has entered into licensing and distribution agreements. POMS and ProPack have combined their name with Aegis for separate products, as well as working together to distribute each other’s products. Unfortunately, in this situation economies of scale will not work to lower costs because of the nature of the product and the industry Aegis is competing in. Aegis and its partners have developed a product that is the technological standard for its category, but can continue to add value to the product, making it desirable and useful in the future....

Analytical Framework

...analytical An analytical framework for evaluating e-commerce business models and strategies Chung-Shing Lee The author Chung-Shing Lee is Director of Electronic Commerce Resource Center and an Assistant Professor of Information Systems and Technology Management in the School of Business at Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma, Washington, USA. Keywords Internet, Economy, Innovation, Strategy Abstract Electronic commerce or business is more than just another way to sustain or enhance existing business practices. Rather, e-commerce is a paradigm shift. It is a ``disruptive’’ innovation that is radically changing the traditional way of doing business. The industry is moving so fast because it operates under totally different principles and work rules in the digital economy. A general rule in e-commerce is that there is no simple prescription and almost no such thing as an established business or revenue model for companies even within the same industry. Under such conditions, an analytical framework is needed to assist e-commerce planners and strategic managers in assessing the critical success factors when formulating e-commerce business models and strategies. This research develops an analytical framework based on the theories of transaction costs and switching costs. Both demand-side and supply-side economies of scale and scope are also applied to the development of this framework. In addition, e-commerce revenue models and strategies are also discussed. Based on the......

The company was founded on managerial know-how, established by two co-founders with in-depth knowledge of the manufacturing domain and software know-how, developed their flagship product called Discoverant. Discoverant was a revolutionary product that offered a solution to highly complex problems in the manufacturing process of pharmaceutical companies.

Aegis aspired to be the recognized leader in the process manufacturing technology by providing software that could be used to integrate all major functions and provide system wide information. Environment: The externalities were in favor of the development of a product like Discoverant: 1) The potential customers were facing serious failures during manufacturing process, without being able to collect the data in timely manner and analyze it properly. 2) Pressure from consumer groups and the government were increasing, with fines and legal actions related to quality control reaching severe heights. 3) Pharmaceutical manufactures with annual revenues of $1 billion were the target customer for the Discoverant product. Such companies accounted for 77 percent or $464 million of the total......

From the text, I could infer that lack of supply was a major constraint to their operations. The South American artifacts aren’t always easy to find and the African source was short circuited because of political unrest. Apart from the snag posed by supply, the firm does not enjoy complete monopoly of the trade as other companies now send out their own buyers to deal directly with some of the Hopi, Navajo, and African sources.

Aegis Malaysia in a Filipino's Pov

...Ericka Jenn Literatures of the Philippines AB Communication October 10, 2014 Aegis Malaysia in a Filipino’s Point-of-View To have posted such a preposterous video, requires a whole lot of nerve. Moreover, it was an actual ad for a company. We do know that all types of businesses should possess a thing called “professionalism” which is also actually required as a basic necessity for the entity of a corporation. But, what did exactly happen in Aegis Malaysia’s public relations advertisement? Talking about ethics, morality and God forbid even humanity, how did Aegis Malaysia have the guts to stoop that low just to gain even more recognition? Or maybe, achieve their hidden agenda? Given this situation, a liberal Filipino would want to know the reason(s) behind the advertisement, which states the main point of this selection. I believe that it was a careless act, imprudent of ethics, and very unprofessional when seen through a person infused with the Philippines’ culture. We are often, if not all, known for the fact that we offer our pakikisama to each other. In local workplace, this is essential for a comfortable and more efficient job; internationally, our pakikisama may also result to what we are commonly known for, our being hospitable to foreigners. Through this, we were identified as one of the happiest countries. In relation to this, when we connect to a vast variety of people through many......

Aegis Analytical Corporation's Strategic Aiances

...To: Harlequin Enterprises From: Subject: The MIRA Decision Date: September 13, 2014 CRITICAL ISSUES The launching of MIRA is a big decision for Harlequin. Mira is a new line of single-titled women’s fiction novel. Harlequin needs to develop and execute new strategies in order for them to explore and be successful in the new single- titled women fiction market compare to their series romantic novels. The primary critical issue facing Harlequin is the "steady loss of share in a growing women's fiction market", due to the growing popularity of single-title novels. With the volume sales dependence that is inherent in series publishing, the unit sales stalling that occurred in the late 80’s and early 90’s acted as a warning signal to Harlequin. While Harlequin was the dominant and very profitable producer of series romance novels, research indicated that many customers were reading as many single-titled romance and women fiction books as series romance novels. A change in pricing strategies enabled revenues to continue to rise, but this was a short-term solution and Mira has the potential to become a long-term solution. However, there are a number of issues surrounding the launch of Mira. Conversely, Mira represents an extremely high risk undertaking for Harlequin with significantly higher costs for production, distribution and marketing. A single-title novel is a unique product, which requires a publisher to generate higher per-unit sales volumes; create individual......

Online Analytical Processing

...Online Analytical Processing Online Analytical Processing In today’s markets the information plays a critical role in a sustainability of any business. Companies invest in technology that allows them to collect massive amounts of data: data marts and warehouses, database structures, specialized servers, and Web-enable software products (O'Brien & Marakas, 2011). The ability to analyze and synthesize the available data can be a source of a competitive advantage for any firm. Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) is one of tools that can assist managers in making sound business decisions. OLAP is a powerful technology behind many Business Intelligence (BI) applications. It offers many capabilities for data discovery, report viewing, complex analytical calculations, and planning (Olap.com, n.d.). In other words, OLAP is a “computer-enhanced multidimensional analysis” (Achor, 2002). The term OLAP was created by E.F. Codd in 1993. According to Codd and associates, OLAP is made up of many speculative “what-if” and/or “why” data model scenarios conducted within the context of the specific historical basis (Codd, Codd and Salley, 1993). Under these scenarios, the values of major parameters are changed to show potential variances in “supply, production, the economy, sales, marketplace, costs, and/or other environmental and internal factors” (Codd, Codd and Salley, 1993, p.6). These variable groups or dimensions make up a base for the company’s planning, analysis and......

Analytical Chemistry

...Ass Analytical chemistry What is Qualitative Analysis? Qualitative analysis is the aspect of analytical chemistry dealing with the identification of elements or compounds in an unknown substance. Very simply put, it answers the question "What is in this sample?" and usually does so with yes/no question. What is Quantitative Analysis? Quantitative chemical analysis is the aspect of analytical chemistry dealing with determining the quantity of a particular chemical is in a substance. In short, it attempts to answer questions involving "How much?" Accuracy: Accuracy refers to the agreement between experimental data and a known value. You can think of it in terms of a bull’s eye in which the target is hit close to the center, yet the marks in the target aren't necessarily close to each other. Accuracy is defined as, "The ability of a measurement to match the actual value of the quantity being measured". If in reality it is 34.0 F outside and a temperature sensor reads 34.0 F, then than sensor is accurate. Precision Precision refers to how well experimental values agree with each other. If you hit a bull’s-eye precisely, then you are able to hit the same spot on the target each time, even though that spot may be distant from the center. Precision is defined as, "(1) The ability of a measurement to be consistently reproduced" and "(2) The number of significant digits to which a value has been reliably measured". If on several tests the temperature......

...conversation between the two of us at times. Anyone who knows either of us knows that if you’re hanging out with the two us you’re in for a day filled with laughs and acts of randomness. I have known Andrew for eight years now and I can confidently say he is one of a kind. He is a completely unpredictable person and I think that’s why I am so close with him. When thinking of the similarities between Andrew and myself, I think the fact that we enjoy each other’s company so much makes us as close as we are. We are two individuals, although we relate on many things, we aren’t the same person and have different views and thoughts on many subjects. When I got together with Andrew recently and began discussing family, the first topic of my Analytical Paper, Andrew replied, “I don’t have a family”. Now - 1 - before he gets the poor and abused label, this is the type of thing Andrew says on a daily basis. He’s not the type of kid to sit down and have a serious conversation with you right away. If you want to hear what he has to say, it takes a little bit of dragging it out of him sometimes. However other times you can’t get him to be quiet. The fact was that I already knew about his views on family. “Responsibility, connection, commitment” Andrew hasn’t shown these qualities for eight years. When it comes to his family life, I’m embarrassed at times. If I ever talked to my mother or father the way Andrew does I might end up getting a backhand to the face.......
