Brian Krzanich: Our Strategy and The Future of Intel

Last week I shared how Intel is making broad changes to accelerate our transformation by aligning every segment of our business آ– our people, our places and our projects آ– to our strategy. Our strategy itself is about transforming Intel from a PC company to a company that powers the cloud and billions of smart, connected computing devices. We head into that future with tremendous assets and advantages: our spirit of innovation, our technology and manufacturing leadership, and the trust of our customers. But what does that future look like? I want to outline how I see the future unfolding and how Intel will continue to lead and win as we power the next generation of technologies. There are five core beliefs that I hold to be undeniably true for the future:

  • The cloud is the most important trend shaping the future of the smart, connected world آ– and thus Intel’s future.

  • The many "things" that make up the PC Client business and the Internet of Things are made much more valuable by their connection to the cloud.

  • Memory and programmable solutions such as FPGAs will deliver entirely new classes of products for the data center and the Internet of Things.

  • 5G will become the key technology for access to the cloud and as we move toward an always-connected world.

  • Moore’s Law will continue to progress and Intel will continue to lead in delivering its true economic impact.

Our strategy is based on these premises, and the unique assets that only Intel brings to them. There is a clear virtuous cycle here آ– the cloud and data center, the Internet of Things, memory and FPGAs are all bound together by connectivity and enhanced by the economics of Moore’s Law.
