Intel has announced a broad re-organisation focusing all its major product groups to support the development of complete technology platforms that rely on Intel components and software.
In addition, two new divisions have been created to address growing opportunities in the digital healthcare market and to serve Intel's worldwide distribution channel.
Intel said it first provided customers with a solution based fully on Intel components and software - such as microprocessors, chipsets, communications chips, base software capabilities, and other enabling tools - with the 2003 introduction of the Intel Centrino mobile technology, used in laptops.
The announcement also sees the establishment of three main groups covering mobility, the digital enterprise and digital home, all following this example.
Intel said the platform-based organisations it has created reflect the ongoing convergence of computing and communications by incorporating both capabilities across the new groups.
"Intel is putting the people and resources in place to sharpen our focus on the development of platforms that meet the demands of our customers and provide innovative and exciting new technologies for the marketplace," said Paul Otellini, Intel president and chief operating officer.
