Re: Entering New Market Segments
@Li Tan, well said, utilizing data in a smart fashion is the key. It can unearth partnerships and value that might otherwise be overlooked.
I think the example of Tesla's move into the home battery and energy industry is good. Maybe, in isolation Tesla would have never moved into the home battery industry but, between Tesla and SolarCity the data existed to create a whole new market segment. Now that Tesla has made the initial move, many other car manufacturers are also looking into this new market segment and have created offerings in place.
