Versatilist thanks to Virtualization: Avastu India reports

Our Avastu Associate in India has launched his blog. Watch that space for a lot of news on not just Virtualization but lots more!

Here he's talking about Versatilists! (We did cover that in our podcast)

It is to the advantage of an organization to employ versatilist because an enterprise will be able to easily redeploy this type of employee based on changes in business requirements or strategy. To illustrate this using a math term, the versatilist has a higher area under the curve rating. Think of a person having some level of knowledge/experience in 15 knowledge areas. That person may have a very high competency (score 5) in 3 areas, a medium level of competency (score 3) in 5 areas an introductory level of competency (score 1) in 4 areas and no competency (score 0) in 3 areas. This creates an area under the curve of 34. This is different from a specialist who may score very high in 1 area and have no competency in others. This breadth of knowledge and experience is what enables faster changes to other roles.

and I must admit a technology like Virtualization can surely make you a IT Versatilist. Your knowledge not on starts spanning other areas like Networking, Storage(SAN,NAS,iSCSI,AoE,SoE etc), MiddleWare (Apps), OS (Hardware,Software) but there is a pretty big chance that your growing knowledge (if adequately honed and encouraged by the employer) can be used all over the place. These high performing workers are the key to your success! Take good care of them and enjoy the fruits of their success (meaning: their success is your success!).
