Investors waiting eagerly for VMware's IPO!

Forbes reporting:

Certainly, from a technological standpoint, this is the stock that most of the investing world has been waiting for," said David Menlow, president of market research firm IPOFinancial.com. "It's going to be met with an incredibly strong level of investor support."
But watch out that it may start a domino effect for other IPOs as well!

Despite its connection to well-known players in the tech market, VMware faces the challenge of increasing competition.

"Competition will definitely be an issue, but to what extent I'm reluctant to say," said equity analyst J. Hingorani, who covers EMC at Standard & Poor's. But Hingorani is quick to add that VMware is probably the furthest ahead of its competitors, which include Virtual Iron Software and XenSource.

VMware's IPO could spark additional IPOs in the virtualization market. John Thibault, president and chief executive of Lowell, Mass.-based Virtual Iron, said an initial public offering is something the company will have to consider by the end of next year, or beginning of 2009.

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!
