Virtualization: Flexibility and Scalability is the new theme!



Look around you. Ask your colleaues of what they want. Look at the micro-managed desktop and server environemnt. Look at disgruntled clients/customers because their services/requests have to wait weeks and weeks to pass through that agonizing ITIL beast.. change manager needs to approve, activities need to be planned, test/development/staging environments have to be reinvented. Hang on, this conversation is something many of you can very well understand. You've gone through it! All of you (I know it!)





There is an acute need for flexibility, scalability will come. Scalability will come because you client/customer will want to continue to do business with you and you will discover new ways to provision and manage these ever increasing but highly manageable environments!

Anyways Arn Australia says the same things...

The next challenge is whether you need to run your own enterprise applications in-house. A few years ago software-as-a-service was experimental. Things have changed, and as the software-as-a-service vendors have become more sophisticated and the Internet infrastructure more robust, the value proposition has become undeniable. And now that inexpensive, fat data pipes are available, user-access performance is not much of an issue.


SaaS and Virtualization are getting mainstream. All over the place. Hype is long gone. Check out this article...

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!
