SOA and Grid Computing

I read your editorial in the November issue of the Network Magazine with interest.

I think you have made some very good and valid comments on SOA and Grid Computing and how the industry sometimes changes the ideas and concepts to suit its products and offerings. I would like to congratulate you for writing an interesting and thinking editorial.

The right balance

I read the November issue of Network Magazine. The title followed by cover stories rightly focusses on maintaining the right balance of technology and cost. I feel it is one of the most critical aspects that a CIO has to face today. It is also tough to measure RoI with respect to solutions deployed for security. I would appreciate if you focus on stories on IT security as well.

—Teresa George

Thank you for the value-added inputs and encouraging comments. It is great to realise that the various stories carried in the November issue offered help to augment your knowledge enhancement needs.

Today different vendors offer their products with their own licencing model, while the open standard-based solutions are offered on subscription model. Managing multiple OS, enterprise-wide applications are getting complex by every passing day. Further, the various applications and solutions deployed need to communicate with each other without hitting hard on the overall operational performance.

Concerning your request on IT security stories you may find the upcoming January 2007 issue to be valuable. The special issue will focus on the various security strategies deployed and implemented by enterprises in different verticals.

Informative interface

This is in reference to the November issue of Network Magazine. I came across a short piece of interview with Dr Vijayaditya, Director-General, National Informatics Centre in the Interface section. I found the section very informative. The governments across the state and the centre are doing a commendable job by interconnecting all the government Web sites. Post-reading the interface, I surfed the portal The Web site is well designed and user-friendly.

—Rakesh Kumar Munday

We appreciate that you found the section informative and valuable. Although the portal has been launched, the main objective is to make it the home portal of every desktop across the country and that remains to be done.

The other ongoing process is to tie up with various state governments and provide links to the same through NIC is also working on launching the portal in Hindi and it will eventually make the site available in all Indian languages.

We always look forward to hearing from you. Please e-mail your comments, suggestions and queries to,
