Surprised to see the Logo of Netflix in Sepia ? Don’t be. Thats just my representation of how it might be in 5 years. Simply “RIP”. On a serious note, what is very important for us to understand is –  how the company evolved. When Netflix came was on a rise  it created stir with the following WOW factor 1. Renting by mail – Extremely strong logistic. (Novel Idea) 2. Localization of dispatch services. (warehouse near by) 3. No fine, No late fee. (free of worry) 4. Technically unlimited opportunity to see movies. (Calculated risk and well advertised). 6. Stay at home, order online  [ Read More ]

On a not so lazy afternoon, I bumped in to the terminology “Big Data” once again. This time due to official reasons where we need to formulate the strategy for our big data venture. While I have been exposed to the concept from early last year, for last 2 months, everyone is talking about it vehemently. There are clear trends related to acquisitions and product offerings that give very positive sign about the buzz around the concept. While this blog is not to bore you people with the theory of big data, it’s definitely would make sense to define it  [ Read More ]

Often it’s noticed that the technology graduation happens in such a seamless way that it’s difficult to draw a line between the generation. Cloud computing, which evolved from various concepts like optimization, virtualization and utility computing etc, is bit difficult to explain.

Now a days everyone is talking about cloud computing. While most of the enterprise try to do it as someone else is doing it, there are a few who pursue this as the extension of their virtulization effort. Cloud computing in most of the enterprise has resulted from the need of improvement of utilization of the infrastructure and need to reduce the  total cost of ownership. Its a different story that it gives rise to the complexity of infrastructure accounting and cost sharing. It seems like, it’s the way to go for almost every enterprise.

But little did she know my alter-motive. Well concord Mills also has a best buy and what a coincidence it was the launch of apple iPAD 2.0. LOL.

Thomas Friedman said the world is flat, Well the same is not true about the technology trending. In the early 2000s, all of us, the proud preachers of software or service solution wizards were happy glorifying the value of shared service. Shared service which essentially means “commoditi-zation” of function, assumes the following idealistic events to occur. 1. Slicing and dicing the specialty to task level granularity 2. At granular level tasks does not require special knowledge 3. Execution unit of task is not extendable from person to person. It simply means that if i am executing task X, it will  [ Read More ]
