In the technology centric businesses disruptive technologies displace incumbents time and again, sometimes to the extent that incumbents go bankrupt. In this thesis we would address the issue of what strategies are essential to prepare for and to manage disruptions for the affected businesses and industries. Specifically we will look at grid computing that is poised to disrupt (1) certain Enterprise IT departments, and (2) the software industry in the high-performance and web services space. In this thesis, we will present an analysis for addressing this disruption on a segment by segment basis across the distributed computing and application software value chain.
