Cloud, Collaborative Apps to Rule the Roost

Author: Pradeep Rathinam
CEO of Aditi Technologies
The last 12-18 months have made businesses realize the need for better collaboration, greater agility in operations , and better insight into their cost and revenue models. With the economy reviving, businesses are making a comeback with the mindset of leveraging technology to run leaner businesses. The technology industry as well has analyzed business needs better and addressed shortcomings from the past to provide improvised and economically viable solutions such as cloud computing, predictive analysis and collaboration platforms. To further push the newer business models game changers such as iPhone and Android have taken the information worker beyond the boundaries of the business, making the concept of “Information at your fingertips” a reality.

Today, enterprises are focusing on business process optimization through automation and streamlining workflows as well as inter-connecting different departments, business with vendors/customers. Enterprises are also looking at incorporating ‘learning from social networks’ into their collaboration platforms. The firms are in the process of measuring all aspects of business and doing predictive modeling to identify new avenues for improving revenue and profitability.

ISVs are observing the change in mindset of enterprises and consumers and have realized that success of their products lies in ability to collaborate with other products. Also the traditional model of selling boxed products has hit a plateau and ISVs realize SaaS model is the future for increased adoption of their products.

Entrepreneurs are not left behind in the race to leverage new technologies. They are moving away from the stealth mode and have increased pressure on time to market and early ROI. One of the biggest investments has been in infrastructure and with the emergence of cloud; startups are able to operate at a fractional cost with better time-to-market.

We are witnessing the evolution of the software industry and especially in the way enterprises enhance their productivity through greater collaboration and analytics.

Pradeep Rathinam, CEO of Aditi Technologies. Aditi is a leading provider of software product and application development services.

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.

4: First of all.. this is an impressive write. Congrats on that. I agree with you on many levels. There is so much advancement in the T sector that common man too is well equipped with the latest technology, such as iphones, etc. It is no doubt the phase of a modern generation. But on the other hand, not every one is exposed to the full use of these tools. I, for one, still struggle with using an ipod. There are so many features that can be made use of, especially when working in an organization.

I wonder how many companies actually impart training to their staff on making the most of infrastructure whether personally owned or provided by the company, and I mean.. training in full. There is so much that can be made use and this is an untapped goldmine, literally. Infrastructure is so rapidly improving and upgrading that one has to be quick enough to keep up with the race, and that goes for companies too other than individual professionals.
