Global Sourcing: Convergys shuts down Mumbai Center!

However, the company did not comment on this or how many employees had been asked to leave the firm. “Convergys has decided to consolidate all existing business performed at the Malad facility and move it to other existing locations. The size of the project does not warrant Convergys continuing this business in a separate location, so Convergys intends to close the Malad facility by August 31, 2008,” the company said in an e-mailed statement.

“Employees who remain with Convergys on the date of closure and who are eligible under the applicable labour legislations will be paid statutory compensation. Additionally, Convergys will pay a severance benefit to employees who continue to service Convergys until the closure. Further, Convergys will consider transfer/relocation of employees to its other existing locations,” it added.

A person familiar with the development said most employees were choosing to leave rather than wait till the month end to collect the severance pay. An employee speaking to ET on condition of anonymity said a few employees from Malad were made to relocate to the Thane facility, but this was mostly at the senior level and based on their responsibility.

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.
