System Integrators Wakeup call: Ambitious Nebulas re-configures its strategy; goes into innovative solutions

Smaller and agile integrators are realizing that revamping their strategy and going for strategic solutions framework will help them ride the recession wave and may be the only way to go for a sustainable growth in this increasingly competitive market. If companies don't shed their older skin and adopt newer models, they face several challenges and are likely to suffer from the "S-Belly Innovation Cramp" (I will detail that out in a seperate strategy article) :

  1. Losing qualified professionals to competitors
  2. Losing value
  3. Losing themselves (eventually)

Ambitious integrator Nebulas has split into three divisions to shake off its specialist security image and
has renamed itself the Nebulas Solutions Group.

Although its core offering is security, the firm also covers other areas such as application acceleration and WAN optimisation, but these were being overlooked by customers, said managing director Nick Garlick.

“We finished the year at the end of March with 50 per cent growth. One of the challenges we have had as a business is the perception that we were focused solely on security ­ but 25 per cent of our business is application acceleration. We are also very strong in WAN optimisation and virtualisation.”

The new group will comprise Nebulas Security (data security, privacy and compliance), Nebulas Xcelerate (application acceleration) and Nebulas Virtualise (virtualisation).

Garlick stressed the different divisions were not about propelling the company into new product areas, but reinforced the company’s existing work in those areas.

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…
