Al-Noor Ramji - another view

Anonymous's picture

Al-Noor Ramji is a showman and a charlatan. He stuffed BT with cronies who owe their careers to him. Most of the IT development work has been shipped offshore. Soon TCS and Infosys will have a nice neckhold on BT. Worst of all, his methods aren't actually any good. Agile isn't relevant to a corporation whose IT workload is mostly systems integration and process design. Al-Noor Ramji was sacked by Qwest with a job title of Technical Adviser. His top priority has been to make himself unsackable at BT.

Al-Noor's vision is to peddle the nonsense that the world is going faster and faster, and only one man can save us from the dizzying pace of change - Al-Noor Ramji.

What are talking about...?

What on earth are you waffling on about?

I couldn't really care what your personally feelings are towards Al-noor Ramji; however - you've completely undermined any logical argument by slating Agile development processes. They're not a 100% fit for everything, but you get better results than the stacks of powerpoints, visios & pdf files that you're undoubtedly familiar with & obviously use to hide behind when the work needs to get done!!!

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
