Aggregation - Slim devices, Google, Zoho

Fri, 18 May 2007 05:23:15 GMT

There are few things that interest me more than spotting an idea that has a postive disruption power. I think Internet's power of aggregation is often used till recently to pluck the low hanging fruits (read, Amazon.com, eBay or the clutch of other content and business integrators). What I am seeing is neither novel nor am I going to propound a new theory. There is need for sensible enterprise business tools for the small and medium enterprises where the costs are based on transactions (usage)



Google's YouTube Purchase

Sun, 24 Dec 2006 12:23:09 GMT

We were all trying our best to find an answer in retrospection to why Google bought YouTube and why did it pay so much for YouTube? You must remember that Microsoft commented, rather in a dismissing tone, that YouTube is just a copyright problem waiting to happen. YouTube matters to Google because of Google's weakness. Google still is a distant (not even) fourth when it comes to multimedia search (read, video and audio). Is there a way to find which minute of an audio clip, the word web was fi



Collaborative Learning

Tue, 19 Dec 2006 06:20:25 GMT

eLearning did to learning, what telephones did to communication. Telecommunication is ubiquitous that it has reached people belo poverty line, even in places like India (where you can pay 1 USD and receive incoming calls for free for 15 years!) Drawing a parallel, however am not convinced if eLearning has lived up to its potential. Rather eLearning entrepreneurs are yet to arrive. In businesses, its mostly the low hanging fruits that get plucked first. First Publishes came up with e-content wi



Answering James

Tue, 10 May 2005 07:03:03 GMT

James: Nice blog...pretty good cartoons... Virtualization of education in third worls countries has already started happening. Ok, I agree they are very nascent and are tucked way away from public eye. Have you heard of N-log ? IIT Madras has a group called Te-Net that has a few companies under its belt. Midas and N-Log are two of them. Midas manufactures the codec (excuse, my idea of elecrtonics is limited). the stuff basically helps you launch a Wi Fi network at a fraction of cost of wha



Future of education

Sat, 07 May 2005 05:55:55 GMT

Having been into researching about eLearning for a while now, I try to do the crystal ball gazing. There are a few predictions that I have about the way learning would be carried out. The prime movers of many of the changes I point out here will be technology and tech-driven services, that will typically be carried out in hubs of educational breeding grounds. Now read on for the predictions..if IT toolbox, I and you exist for the next 1



Beyond Cost and Competency

Sun, 24 Apr 2005 10:21:21 GMT

Ever thought why big firms outsource? Is it because they want to reduce cost? Or is it a way to concentrate on core competencies and leave IT and certain non-core business processes to a dedicated partner? Both are correct. There is also a different way to look at things that drive outsourcing. I believe that the most important factor for outsourcing to become a mainstream strategy is commitment.. It has always been implicitly understood, but I guess its the most crucial advantage an offsho



The proposal detective

Thu, 03 Mar 2005 13:52:52 GMT

Writing an RFP has mostly been a lovely excerise to show off one's writing skills or at the best an effort to exhibit one's skill to write reams of yada-yada.There are a few who have mastered what it takes to evaluate a vendor in this pre-sale process. While it is equally important to evaluate the credentials of your vendor, the process becomes more important if you are small and even more important if your vendor is also small.



Answering Roy and looking at the year that goes by

Mon, 13 Dec 2004 03:32:18 GMT

I think software SME's need to have a good combo of product based services and pure services than relying on services only. There are advantages working for the SME segment than the biggies. And there are disadvantages as well. IBM & clan too are looking at the SME and its interesting to see how they take it on. That was a comment from Mr.Roy, for my previous entry. Well said.



Another Process Outsourcing hits mainstream

Fri, 19 Nov 2004 03:11:41 GMT

I remember reading stories in my childhood that, students in INdia used to stay in their guru's (teacher's) home for years, do household chores and learn arts and sciences. In Indian mythology, there was one Ekalyva known for his skills in archery.Je learnt the skill by having Drona as his guru, but by meditating about drona in his mind than by going to his home and learning directly. He infact can be called as the first virual student.. And now history repeats...



Will pure-play services scale up?

Fri, 08 Oct 2004 05:09:40 GMT

Hi Firstly, am very sorry about being in-consistent in posting.Just remembering what the CTO of Philips Labs India said a day back.. "Indians, especially in IT are very entrpreneurial but are equaly good in finding excuses for anything" While I firmly believe that am in the first category, these days I tend to belong to the second atleast when it comes to blogging. Sitting in the frontline of a SME software organization, I wonder how SME software companies grow in the neighbourhood of IBMs,Ac



How growth may come?

Tue, 24 Aug 2004 06:53:06 GMT

Hi, Its been a very long haitus from my end. And it took two mails from folks here, for me to realize that I have completely forgotten to update my blog..Its been hectic activity in my company..



Insecure about your job? Not the SME IT folk

Fri, 04 Jun 2004 11:26:56 GMT

I had a chance to listen to the Chief of Progeon talk about the fears and the stakes of the process owner. To quote him here: "He (the person incharge of outsourcing) spearheads the outsourcing initiative in the organization. He is watched. His people know that it is a good decision, but they have heartfelt hatred against a bunch of unkowns eventually snatching their jobs." But I think such a phobia for outsourcing is not as explicit in small companies as it is for their bigger counterparts.



There but not there

Thu, 27 May 2004 06:51:20 GMT

Hi sorry for the lllloooong hibernation..Had been neck deep in work..Sometime you have nothing to do in a day and some days never come to an end..Typical of any concept marketing job..Interests and queries come in a bunch..and a long silence.. Now, Rohit, you were asking if the SMEs are trully caught on, with the idea of outsourcing.. hmm..i guess, as the title says, they are there but not quite notcieably.. I think one of the significant reasons can be, if i can go on to freewheel. Faile



Find the Mr.Right

Wed, 05 May 2004 07:19:50 GMT

Hi, Its a routine now for CTOs of SME, nowadays, to get phone calls from far away lands of India, Czech, Russia and the likes, with salesmen selling their software products/services with elevator pitches. Wondering what would be the "Travelling salesman problem" be called a few years from now. Will it be "mouse-clicking salesman?" OK.Lets come back to the point. Too much of choice is as big a problem as having none.The CIOs of SMEs have gone through both in quick succession.Days when softwar



Innovative Marketing : Sustaining in the outsourcing market

Fri, 30 Apr 2004 07:42:05 GMT

Hi, There was an interesting comment, rather a question, based on my first post. Unlike biggies in the business, smaller firms are addressing the crucial question of survival.They need to have innovative marketing techniques, to survive and to get noticed. Now the question that came to me goes like this. "We are having a set up with few customers.We have a good relationship with them. But how to replicate our success and how to scale up with this experience" However, since it was an interes
