About QLogic Corp.
QLogic Corporation engages in the design and supply of network infrastructure products that improve, manage, and support the transmission of data from computer servers to storage systems and from computer servers to other servers.
The companys products generally include adapters, switches, and application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). Adapters physically reside in a server and provide for connectivity from the server to storage, high performance computing (HPC), and converged networks. Switches manage the transmission and routing of data from servers to storage devices or from servers to servers. The ASICs that the company sells are protocol controller chips that are embedded within a server or storage device. The business applications that drive requirements for its networking infrastructure products include general business information technology requirements; data warehousing, data mining, and online transaction processing; media-rich environments, such as film and video, broadcast, medical imaging, computer-aided design (CAD), and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM); server clustering, high-speed backup, and data replication; and research and scientific applications.
The company classifies its products into three categories: Host Products, Network Products, and Silicon Products. Host Products consist of fibre channel and internet small computer systems interface (iSCSI), host bus adapters; InfiniBand host channel adapters; fibre channel over Ethernet (FCoE), converged network adapters (CNAs); and intelligent Ethernet adapters (IEAs). Network Products consist of fibre channel switches, including stackable edge switches, bladed switches, virtualized pass-through modules, and high-port count modular-chassis switches; InfiniBand switches, including multi-protocol directors, edge and bladed switches; Ethernet pass-through modules; and storage routers for bridging Fibre Channel, FCoE, and iSCSI networks. Silicon Products consist of fibre channel controllers, iSCSI controllers, converged network controllers, and Ethernet controllers.
The companys products are used in connection with three distinct types of networks: Storage Networks, High Performance Computing Networks, and Converged Networks.
The company provides fibre channel and iSCSI adapters for servers, as well as mezzanine adapters for bladed servers, which connect host computer servers to storage networks. It also provides a line of fibre channel switches, including stackable edge switches, bladed switches, virtual pass-through modules, and high-port count modular-chassis switches. In addition, the company provides intelligent storage routers for bridging Fibre Channel, FCoE, and iSCSI networks. Its intelligent storage routers provide a way for iSCSI-based servers to access storage devices already deployed on a fibre channel storage network.
The companys high performance computing networking products are based on InfiniBand technology. InfiniBand is a specification used to connect servers, communications infrastructure equipment, storage and embedded systems, and is used primarily within computing environments where its capability to process data-intense calculations is crucial. The company offers a portfolio of InfiniBand networking products for HPC Networking, including quad data rate (QDR), host channel adapters, QDR multi-protocol directors, edge switches, and bladed switches, as well as software tools to install, operate, and maintain networks. Its QDR InfiniBand switches range from fixed configuration to configurable, modular director class switches.
Converged Networking: The companys enhanced Ethernet based portfolio included in its converged networking products consists of CNAs and IEAs. CNAs are a new class of networking products that support the emerging fibre Ccannel over Ethernet technology. FCoE is a converged networking technology that provides a storage and data network over enhanced Ethernet, while preserving the investment in existing Fibre Channel infrastructure and storage. The companys CNAs enable network convergence by combining the benefits of Fibre Cha

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
