Strategy articles coming up: Virtualization, Global Economy and Mashup- Sourcing

What I have to tell you in the coming articles?

Virtualization: Industry insiders are pushing me and telling me things such as the "The Big KVM surprise entry where VMware is soon to be relegated to being just one of the many virtualization vendors". Clearly the triangle is going to be KVM (vendors who will come up with a variety of offerings both on desktops and server families), Xen (which will have to find its way seriously into cloud computing to keep its differentiation alive) and find a sweeter embrace with the Microsoft in order to ride the Hyper-V wave and VMware, which will basically have to deal with the inevitable- that is decreasing market cap and market share".

Global Economy and Global Sourcing: Here I will talk about "The Great Unjaring"

Mashup Sourcing Framework: Here I will detail out, as I have done in the past, with several angles such as agile LOBs, Horizontal approach and Spreading the risks, but this one will focus and will go a step further with the in-, out-, multi-, blended- sourcing models and comprise of a typical, geographically spread out, risk-free "kiosks", where a more community driven, pragmatic approach will help firms reach newer heights. As consolidation intensifies in the industry, the siloed, legacy money-making approach will have to make way to a more nimble, innovation- ready, lite-LOBs that will surface and unsurface effectively.

Hold on to your horses...

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
