Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC), is by no doubts one of the pioneers when it comes to chipsets, certainly more so to those in computers. However, the company has seemingly completed its transition to a completely new line of business, revolving around data center operations.
This is not the only change that the company has made, but it further illustrates the dedication and resources that the company has been willing to invest in order to transform the entity into a data-driven organization.
More details about Intel’s transition
Currently, Intel is responsible for manufacturing 14-nanometre chips. However, various spokespeople for the company have stated that throughout this year they will be working on diminishing the size of their chipsets down to 10 nanometers, ready for the public by 2018.
However, this is not where the company will stop, according to people familiar with the matter. In addition to this, it was revealed that following the light of data-driven business, the company will soon be working on 7-nanometer chipsets for computers.
It was also revealed that the 10-nanometer chipsets, which are expected to be released sometime next year, will have three separate models, each better than the last. However, the first model will be integrated into the company’s data-driven business.
Opportunity for Intel and comments from executives
The Executive Manager, and General Manager of the data center, Diana Bryant, stated, “Each functional group looks at their business and strategy in the context of making the data center the number one priority.”
The decision, to which Intel made, regarding the higher focus placed on data-driven incites, is due to the current and forecasted data driven tasks, to which users do daily. Current standings, a user on average, is capable of generating a minimum of 650 megabytes data per day.
This is still small scale, however, for example, an autonomous vehicle is expected to produce over 4 Terabytes of data each day in use. Looking at a larger scale of operations, a smart factory is anticipated to 1 petabyte of data each day (500 billion pages of information).
