Turner Investment Partners: Virtualization is revolutionizing business

The commentary, entitled Virtualization: are you being served?, was written by Tara Hedlund, portfolio manager/security analyst; Michael Lozano, security analyst; Chris McHugh, senior portfolio manager/security analyst; and Bob Turner, chairman and chief investment officer. The piece notes that the technology may boost server utilization rates as high as 60-80% and that a recent survey found that 75% of chief information officers consider virtualization their top capital-spending priority.

The California-based software company VMware holds a near-monopoly of an 85% share of the virtualization market for the popular x86 servers. As the analysts note, "We would be hard-pressed to identify another tech company that so dominates its market as VMware does virtualization." It's estimated that in 2007 VMware could nearly double its revenue, to about $1.3 billion, and may increase its operating profits by more than 140% to about $300 million.

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…
