Is everyone thrilled about Citrix's acquisition?

Not all channel partners are happy. They will lose flexibility and versatility with a combination of proprietary software with locked in Xensource bundling. This is not really nice when folks, and I do know a lot of them were looking to push XenSource in their own ways. Bottom line: There is not much left to be creative with XenSource's solutions.

While observers say Citrix's acquisition of XenSource makes sense for the vendor and Citrix resellers, there are questions about whether XenSource channel partners will benefit. "We selected XenSource because we were looking for faster and better technology," said Sergius Heifa, president of Teklan, a Toronto-based integration and security solution provider and XenSource partner. "We mix a lot of services with XenSource. Citrix is a commodity product. Its resellers beat each other up on price. If Citrix acquires XenSource, it would take an up-and-coming technology and make it just a part of its bag of technologies."
Unless of course Citrix handles, nurtures and funds XenSource to stay as independent as VMware under EMC's umbrella. Time will tell, right now the developers are ready to start coding like mad at Citrix!

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…
