Evolving solutions helps save 90% of operational time

In today's complex and dynamic IT environment, efficient internal IT is paramount. Fishbowl Solutions, a leading technology consulting and software development firm for the manufacturing industry, implemented server virtualization from Evolving Solutions to meet their clients' expectations.

Problem: Increased management of day-to-day internal IT projects was infringing on time spent with customers.
As Fishbowl Solutions continue to expand and grow, management of day-to-day internal IT projects was taking more time. Fishbowl employees wanted to spend more time working with their customers and less time on IT however lack of common commands, slow restore times and time spent on server configuration had increased the amount of time necessary to manage their IT environment.

"Prior to working with Evolving Solutions, our employees spent 10-15% of their time managing IT, minimizing the time spent with our customers," states Tim Gruidl, CEO of Fishbowl Solutions.

Solution: Virtual Machine Storage using Server Virtualization solution architected by Evolving Solutions
"We weren't going to make a decision without seeing how the solution worked," continues Gruidl. "Evolving Solutions was able to give us that comfort level by providing us with a proof of concept in their Business Partner Innovation Center."

By storing virtual machine files on shared storage, Fishbowl Solutions was able to not only efficiently monitor and manage their IT environment, but afford the time necessary to develop a roadmap towards future expansion.

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…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…

A Collection of Threnodies : Part 1

Whale Fall

Dress me up in my new threads
clasp my greasy palms
grease my hair
I'm ready for the fall

Watch at all the decadence
watching the avalanche
I'm slipping down
losing my buoyancy

What's become of us
where have we come
this far, this close
close to the doors

I hear them, sublimal chants
I'm on the run
I race through the human sea
I am the king!

I'm the slave
to my own undoings
I'm the jester in my courtyard
We jest as we run

We're strolling on that thin rope
we grope as we rope
we're true heros
we're the survivors

we're the scavengers
we're the friends
we're the lovers
we're the unbred

Soon awaiting the fall
we're lurking on us
we're osedaxing us
we're soon going to be done
we'll soon be arrested

*osedax(bone devourer, newly discovered marine genus) feeds on a fallen(sunken) whale carcass(which is also called a whale fall). Read more here
