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...
