Servers
The market for servers other than PC servers declined by 13
percent in revenue terms in 1998-99, even though unit shipments went up by a little over 5
percent. Overall growth in the server market in 1998-99 could have been higher had it not
been for the continued slowdown in the economy and uncertain political climate in the
country. Both factors have severely impacted business confidence of domestic as well as
foreign investors, thereby resulting in major expansion plans being put on hold. Demand in
the server market was also impacted by delay on the part of the government to formulate
and implement the new telecom policy.

 

RISC
workstations take a backseat
The market for traditional workstations (RISC/Unix)
declined 21.6 percent in 1998-99. Growth in the workstation market was severely hampered
by the continued slump in the economy due to the backslide in industrial activity.

Traditional Workstations
The market for traditional workstations (RISC/Unix) declined
21.6 percent in 1998-99. Growth in the workstation market was severely hampered by the
continued slump in the economy and the backslide in industrial activity. Workstation
buying was a major casualty of the slowdown in the Manufacturing segment that has been the
mainstay of this product line.

Apart from the economic factors, traditional workstations witnessed their share of the
market shrink also because the price performance benefits of personal workstations
(Intel/NT) continued to secure a foothold in the graphics and technical computing market.
Even though traditional workstations may have been overwhelmed by the success of the
personal workstation market, there are still certain segments such as high-end 3D design
(CAE and EDA) that show preference towards Unix environment.
