With the rapid development of a variety of mobile network access devices such as the netbook, tablet PC and e-reader as well as the promotion of cloud computing services, an always-connected world foreseen decades ago by the IT industry has gradually taken shape. Taiwan’s manufacturers have become a key partner for transnational firms seeking to form strategic business alliances along different stages of the supply chain, including components, hardware, software, systems and services.
