2008: Virtualization to remain hot item for Venture Capitalists

Well for the industry as well, I'd say...

"Virtualisation across the board is already hot, and it's going to get hotter," says Maeder. Once applied mainly to servers in the datacentre, this technique will find more applications as enterprises look to get their arms around unruly IT systems. "It's getting more segmented, it's going to pop up in a lot of places, but ultimately it all amounts to the same thing; taking something that's currently uncontrollable, labour-intensive and vulnerable to security breaches and making it safe and more economical to operate."

Another trend Maeder predicts for 2008 is, at long last, the death of antivirus software and other security products that allow employees to install and download any programs they'd like onto their PCs, and then attempt to weed out the malicious code. Instead, products that protect endpoints by only allowing IT-approved code to be installed will become the norm.

"There are much better approaches to dealing with external threats, and those approaches are going to take over," he says.

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…
