Enterprise Software Picturesque: A Future Perspective

Author: Sai Gundavelli
Founder & CEO of Solix Technologies
A decade from now corporate IT will look very different from today. All organizations will buy nearly all their computer functionality and infrastructure above the desktop on the utility model — delivered via the network from central computer service providers. The only exceptions will be the relatively few applications that provide true competitive advantage to a private enterprise or that shield national secrets for governmental agencies.

Computer architectures will be highly virtualized, and end-users will often not know or care what functionality resides on their devices, on a company server, or out in the Cloud. Software will be highly integrated, blurring the once-sharp boundaries between applications. Green technology will also be taken for granted at all levels, reducing energy expenditures and, in the data center, cutting cooling as well.

The rush to mobile computing will move handheld technology and applications forward rapidly, driven by the advent of new devices such as Google's mysterious future venture and increasing network speeds. In a decade, users will take the ability to access and use enterprise data through their phones for granted. And this will be a worldwide trend, not just limited to today's First World countries. And out in that Cloud and remaining private data centers, the meaning of “high performance server” will constantly be redefined upward, while flash memory will replace Tier 1 disks.

Amidst the trends, the big vendors like Google and Oracle will strengthen their enterprise software position. The economy could be tough, as risk capital will remain hard to find for at least two years due to the lack of confidence in the economy. The best bet for entrepreneurs may be ventures that solve the grim problems of carbon emission and the economy, like bio-fuel and lower power devices. To emerge in this scene, the entrepreneur has to brood over the core competency of his product, creating substance that cannot be replicated easily. Although fewer startups will find funding, this focus and the creativity behind the winning startups will guarantee that the quality of the products released will be competitive.

1: From: Mrs. Mary David

This mail may be a surprise to you because you did not give me the permission to do so and neither do you know me but before I tell you about myself I want you to please forgive me for sending this mail without your permission. I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the will of God for you to help me and my family, God almighty will bless and reward you abundantly. I need an honest and trust worthy person like you to entrust this huge transfer project unto.

My name is Mrs. Mary David, The Branch Manager of a Financial Institution. I am a Ghanaian married with 3 kids. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars. This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manager made as profit last year (i.e. 2010 financial year). I have already submitted an annual report for that year to my head office in Accra-Ghana as I have watched with keen interest as they will never know of this excess. I have since, placed this amount of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars on an Escrow Coded account without a beneficiary (Anonymous) to avoid trace.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account on my behalf. I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, and 60% would be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund so that the fund can be transferred to your account.

If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response to me. This is why and only reason why I contacted you, I am willing to go into partnership investment with you owing to your wealth of experience, So please if you are interested to assist on this venture kindly contact me back for a brief discussion on how to proceed.

All correspondence must be via my private E-mail ( for obvious security reasons.

Best regards,
Mrs. Mary David.
