Global Sourcing India Tales: While you were sleeping...

Just to talk about the technology trends and adoption in India. We will cover other sectors of the industry as well in the "Globalization India Tales Series" . So lets talk about virtualization here.

Virtualization is hot. Virtualization is being discussed across the globe. But did you know that...

  1. India is adopting virtualization at a very fast pace?
  2. Indian virtualization solutions providers such as HP are virtualizing major clients in UK, US within half a day!!!!?
  3. Virtualization solutions providers are not just going for the U.S and EU customers but are beginning to already create and carve up their own niche?
  4. Many solutions providers are incresingly going after the models where European and U.S firms are spending too much time in their board rooms?
  5. Soon they are bound to out-wolf the rest of the market because they are constantly on move?
  6. Many large Indian firms are already going for a self-sufficiency model where they are training hordes of their employees for a bigger fight?
  7. China too is picking up and going for this market?
  8. Everyday some deployment is taking place in India and outside of India (via India)?
  9. Microsoft is coming is a bigger way in India than elsewhere with its Hyper-V?
  10. Battle to retain professionals is intense in that market?
While we are witnessing all the henpecking amongst vendors, the Indian market is growing rapidly. If we don't act soon, we might be too late

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
