After watching that video, I asked myself these questions:
  • What can CommGate do to be a catalyst of Web 2.0 for small-medium businesses?
  • How can CommGate be a platform to support interactions between business applications, databases, text, video, audio - securely?
I know that if we can answer these questions, CommGate will be a very successful company - the most widely used platform for Web 2.0 for small-medium businesses.

Just think about it:
  • AJAX technologies is capable of replacing fat clients. Imagine dragging and dropping security policies on a web-browser?
  • Web based applications such as vTigerCRM replaces a desktop based CRM system while empowering users and businesses to work from anywhere to access their customer data securely.
  • The CommGate built-in VPN makes that a reality.
  • Alfresco and KnowledTree Document Management System replaces a traditional file-server with indexing and search capabilities with "Google Power".
  • Zimbra replaces a traditional mail server and beats MS Exchange in terms of collaboration, workflow, embedded technologies, web-maps, office-apps.
CommGate Web 2.0 anyone? What is it?
  • Maybe it is an integrated web 2.0 platform with a secure hardened OS based on Linux
  • that manages Internet and network bandwidth intelligently for all users
  • which secures the network and itself with integrated firewall, IDS, IPS, content-filter, audit itself and report anomalies with intelligent information which is easily readable by non-techies
  • a web server with built-in intelligence to provide reports from its logs which is useable by sales, marketing and business decision makers
  • an intelligent web server with a robust built-in and most popular SQL database (MySQL) to run all your business applications
  • a secure file-server that could support traditional file-sharing for Windows, Mac, UNIX, Linux, BSD and integrates with a document management server
.... could it be all that? It's a dream now... and if we work towards it, I know it will be a reality.

Your thoughts?

The 4 Essentials of Effective Leadership

I read this article written Mark Raciappa, ActionCOACH and I totally agree. His communication is clear, concise and it resonated with me. Mark says;
I remember a bumper sticker: “Either Lead or Follow—But Get Out of the Way!”
Interestingly, in my company, I say something similar and it goes like this "If you can lead, lead. If you can't lead, follow. If you cannot lead or follow, get out of my way!
Mark continued to write that, when our role calls for the former, here are 4 important things to keep in mind:1. Great leaders communicate. Realizing that good communication is a 2-way street, we must be responsible for our part. That being said, true communication is the response that you get. Whatever form you choose (verbal, mail, e-mail, etc), if you don’t get the outcome you seek (from a “willing” recipient), the responsibility lies with the sender. Great leaders confirm, gain commitment, and solicit feedback to improve the process.2. Great leaders make decisions. Far too ofte…

Making Optimum Choices in Life

I was asked by one of my business mentees I am currently mentoring, "How do I make the most optimum choice in life when I am bombarded with possibilities all the time?"Life is full of choices. This choice, that choice, both choice or none of the above. THAT's a whopping 4 choice!  Choice can open the door to a whole new possibilities, not only at cross-roads on our path in life, but in each moment, giving us access to the bountiful of possibilities with which we can paint our world any way we want it to be.  We can choose a new action, thought or feeling at any time, and create an entirely new reality as a result.  Every choice has an impact or consequence, to a greater or lesser extent, each one like a pebble dropped in a pond; the ripples, the ramifications, spreading out into your future and other areas of your life. Even one small choice made today that shifts your life by a minor degree can take you to an entirely different future than the one you are heading, opening …
