Global Sourcing China: Despite dearth of professionals strong consulting growth until 2011

According to new research from Kennedy Information, "The Asia Pacific Consulting Marketplace 2008-2011: Key Trends, Profiles and Forecasts," China's unique need for localized firms -- combined with limitations in its education system -- are leading to a scarcity of consulting talent. The situation is, according to many consultancies in China, the sole issue limiting growth. Still the China consulting market is expected to achieve over 20% CAGR over the research's forecast period of 2011, and the Asia Pacific region overall maintains it status as the highest growth market in the consulting world today.

"Even in 2005, interest in the APAC region was driven primarily by opportunistic servicing of growing domestic consulting demand in each market and the wish to support global clients in their endeavors in Asia Pacific," states analyst Damien Blenkinsopp. "Today, a much larger group of firms has moved toward an overall strategic interest in the APAC region. Such interest is unsurprising for the IT consulting space, since offshore outsourcing links have already been playing an important role in that area. More surprising is how strategic interest is very quickly coming to play across the whole consulting landscape."

Among the Asian consulting markets analyzed in the research: ANZEA (Australia, New Zealand): ASEAN-5 (Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore & Thailand); Greater China (Hong Kong, Taiwan), India, Japan, Mainland China, South Korea as well as the less developed markets of Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, Nepal, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.

Along with 3-year growth forecasts for each market, "The Asia Pacific Consulting Marketplace" identifies regional and global opportunities for firms operating in the APAC market, and profiles key consultancies in the region including:

Abeam Consulting, Accenture, AT Kearney, Atos Origin, Bain & Company, Bearingpoint, Booz Allen Hamilton, The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), Capgemini, Deloitte, Electronic Data Systems, Fujitsu, Hewitt Associates, IBM Global Services, Infosys, KPMG, LG CNS, LogicaCMG, McKinsey & Co., Mercer, Monitor Group, NTT Data, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), Samsung SDS, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Watson Wyatt, and Wipro Technologies.

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
