Looking back in the rear view mirror while on the road ahead, I can definitely say that 2012 was a terrific year for SyncBlaze, a fact amply borne out by many intangible as well as measurable aspects, some of which were laid out in detail by Sajesh in his recap post. We are extremely pleased to have acquired close to a hundred partners that have deployed this solution for their many customers and innumerable users. In addition, the accruing buzz in the midst of thousands of inquisitive service providers and resellers who have contacted us during this past year to learn more about our channel focussed business file sharing and collaboration solution does lead me to believe that we can assuredly look forward to a breakout year in 2013.

Len and I heard from a wide spectrum of participants ranging from the Senior executives at large enterprises (like McGraw Hill, Tata communications, Nippon Life etc) to Data center providers, Large Managed Service providers , Small and Medium IT services providers, regional distributors, small businesses and even self employed individuals as well besides a few existing partners who graciously stopped by to wish us.
Though the attendance, concentration of appropriate audience and booth participation was less than we had expected from this highly touted hub for peer networking among technology professionals, I want to rather focus on the important lessons we gathered from those selective and stimulating moments at the expo where we met with professionals who wanted to make sense of the groundbreaking advances in mobility, cloud computing, data center and virtualization solutions and discussed with us on our offerings that could be of value to them.
The year 2012 is shaping up to be a defining moment for Vembu’s cloud services portfolio. We are immensely delighted to announce the launch of the business focused edition for our cloud content management solution – SyncBlaze! With this premier solution, we hope to make it easier for solution providers serving the small and midsize business market to offer robust, cost-effective, high performance content management solutions in the cloud.
Advice from Dr. Share More: How I learned to Stop worrying and Start loving the Information Overload!
While cautiously brooding over the impact of frictionless sharing in our lives, i felt it apt to borrow a leaf from the title of one of the greatest satirical movies of our times about a nuclear scare triggered by the actions of a crazy general. The nuclear apocalypse foreseen due to the policy of MAD (mutually assured destruction) bolstered by the buildup of missiles by proponents during the cold war formed the basis for that satire by Stanley Kubrick.
Well, its the season for predictions and we are on time rolling out our Trend spotting dice for the new year 2012. I saw this list from IBM which predicts trends out for next 5 years !

Want to know what else is overloading our brains and eyeballs these days ? It’s those dime a dozen apps that keep raining down and drenching our smartphones, tablets, desktops and the web.

Our developers have been cranking it up over the past few weeks to provide you with a number of quick and shiny updates and we’re darn happy to report the release of a stream of noteworthy improvements designed to spruce up your Zukmo workspace.
The Information complex competes with Astronomy in how much bigger its going to get and how far we are going to go. After Petabytes and Exabytes, we have been given the Zettabytes. Supposedly, you will hear a lot about this extraordinary quantum of data measurement by 2015 as per an infographic courtesy of Cisco on internet traffic though we have likely crossed this figure in terms of data created and stored worldwide.
In our last post on “Why cloud the future of Dropbox and Evernote?”, our simple message was to dump on certain media bombast projecting the future as a mere extension of current trends. We chose to share a video on Microsoft Vision 2019 that impressed in “Minority Report” style as an evolutionary leap into the future, good enough to shame the extrapolating bots.
Here at Zukmo HQ, we are happily jumping through hoops each day trying to solve the problem of information overload which will be an exponential bother in the future. However, the thing bothering us today is the information overload about that supposed future.
Recently we have been noticing online media outlets of certain stripes going viral with their semi promotional trend castings. Overwhelming our embedded tubes are glorified mirages of their slanted visions and thunderous sound bites from their decaying wisdom teeth. So, we decided to pull the wool over the crystal ball and tell it like it might be otherwise. For the techies contemplating and crunching mythical accounts of the future, read on and peep.
Recently we came across these screamers in the headlines about how popular cloud based services will simply continue their windfall ad infinitum.
We have heard this story before.
