Is VMware worth $10 Billion?



This one is an interesting read. Here the columnist analyzes the IPO strategy of EMC. It is working well for them for now. But still investors need to get more than just excited. Read on...


Everyone agrees the VMWare business is worth a lot of money, but it's hard to get investors to fully recognize that value by plugging it into the stock price of EMC. This is not a unique problem; it happens at big companies with small but fast-growing subsidiaries.

A partial spinoff, like the VMWare IPO, is the textbook response to that problem. Analysts who examine VMWare's independent stock prospects place a value on the enterprise. Dollars to doughnuts, they will conclude the company is worth more than its old, presumed value as a wholly owned subsidiary. Hopefully, that richer value is plugged into Wall Street models that assess the parent's stock and -- voila! -- those shares climb. That's what the textbook says, anyway.


Read ahead.

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!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
