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.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them.
