About ImaginOn, Inc.
ImaginOn Inc (the Company or Imaginon) was incorporated in 1996. The company operates in three segments: ImaginOn, Inc and IDP, which develop, produce and market computer software products, and INOW, an Internet service provider. Imaginon designs, manufactures and sells: software products for businesses and consumers in the CD/DVD-ROM market and software for business server computers that supply interactive video and audio on the Internet and intranets, and a research tool for Internet users. Imaginon's proprietary technology, called "Transformational Database Processing and Playback" (TDPP), enables the creation of new business and consumer products that provide user- friendly and entertaining access to multimedia databases.
In July 2000, Imaginon, Inc. formed a new wholly owned subsidiary, Wireless Web Data, Inc (WWDI). WWDI plans to purchase assets, a patent license and know-how from Imaginon, Inc. WWDI was formed to develop and commercialize a new application of Imaginon technology targeted at wireless Web data acquisition, formatting and delivery. In August 2000, Imaginon's ISP subsidiary, INOW, moved into the wireless networking area and now offers a Lucent Technologies Orinoco® line of wireless networking products. ImaginVideo, WebZinger, ImaginAuthor and sellONstream are trademarks of Imaginon.
The overall market for ImaginVideo is businesses and institutions that are Internet or intranet users. Since the market for ImaginVideo is so large and diffuse, Imaginon initially tested its message in seven target markets during 2000: E- commerce businesses, TV and cable operators, traditional publishers, adult entertainment, education, corporate training, and Web site developers.
The full-featured pro version of ImaginAuthor, the downloadable version is suitable for use by anyone who can use a word processor. Corporate training departments, educational content developers and Internet-TV startups can create interactive TV content for use on CD ROM, DVD ROM, Unix-based or Windows 2000 servers.
Imaginon Software Features
Imaginon's current product line includes ImaginVideo, ImaginAuthor and WebZinger. To support marketing activities, online demonstrations are available for each product.

Any visitor with a connection speed of 200 kbps or higher, Windows 98 and Internet Explorer 5 can use the key features of Imaginon technology, such as real-time branching video with instant Web page links. For more comprehensive demonstrations, Imaginon has developed additional Internet TV "stations" that offer even higher quality video, plus the WebZinger search engine integrated with the station.

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?
