Just this year Intel announced that they would be slowing production to find new materials capable of supporting the demands of Moore’s Law. So the force on the flip side of Moore’s Law – Newton’s Third – is System and Business administration. Put another way, it’s Service: Gordon Moore discovered “The Law”. Therefore, the only way to adjust the impact of the law is to manage service and support accordingly.
Moore’s law is focused on the development of a product – a “thing” – in this case the transistor.
We create systems to harness, extract, manage, and support the capabilities of these “things”. Several “Periods” into the era of Moore’s Law, the difficulties of delivering solid Enterprise Information System support are increasing at an alarming rate; driven by the product-centric advances in technology that are, in turn, driven by Moore’s Law. But at some point the opposite-reaction impact of Newton’s Third are going to kick in and change the mix on Moore’s momentum.
Products are great, but Service is King.
