You Should Know:
Business services powered by SaaS

One of the unspoken convergences of current times is the joining together of business service providers with on-demand application vendors. ADP's recent acquisitions of on-demand vendors Employease and VirtualEdge is a notable example, but it's far from being an isolated case. Last week I noted CRM provider RightNow's work with BPO companies. I discovered some fascinating examples too when I spoke with Colleen Smith, who as director of strategy and business development at Progress Software heads up the vendor's SaaS enablement program, which I described last week as A bigger SaaS ecosystem. One of the most interesting features of Progress Software's SaaS partner base isSoftware is ceasing to be a product that not all of them nowadays are conventional ISVs. "Some of our reseller companies are now being bought by companies you wouldn't think of as conventional software providers," she told me. Larger business service providers have been coming in and buying Progress partners in order to add extra on-demand functionality to their business service offerings. (ZDNet)

Mideast recruitment goes international
Recruiting in the Middle East is taking on a new dimension. Yesterday's announcement that the Middle East's number one job site,, has been appointed the exclusive Middle East partner for The Network, an international alliance of market-leading online recruitment companies, broadens the geographic reach and deepens the opportunities for attracting talent to the Middle East.This is important at a time when the economies of the region are booming and there remains a shortage of talent in many sectors. The Network's partnership with will offer international recruiters the opportunity to post jobs in the Middle East and receive local expertise, service and support through one point of contact.

South Africa: challenges recruitment model
Get your friends jobs and earn a mint. That is the idea behind a new South African recruitment website,, which launched this week. Taking advantage of Web 2.0 features and using an innovative business model, the site offers a reward for people who successfully refer a candidate for the job. Unlike other sites where fees are charged for each job placed, companies can upload jobs for free and choose what they are willing to pay for a successful placement. Job seekers list for free and can either apply directly or refer candidates. It is the referrer who is paid the 'reward' for a successful placement. (TEctonic)

Think you can dance for a career? Think again
So you think you can dance? To make it as a professional, you're going to need talent, dedication, training and versatility, not to mention a solid plan B for stayin' alive after you hang up your dancing shoes. Forget fame. Definitely forget fortune. Neither is likely to be within your grasp unless you're a genetic match for Rudolph Nureyev or the sibling of a single-monikered pop star. "The vast majority of dancers cannot make a living off of dancing alone as a performer," says John Munger, director of research and information for Dance/USA, an American dance service organization. "I believe less than 3,000 actually do in the entire nation." (

Baby Boomer Retirement Bust?
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) released an interesting study about the impact of retiring baby boomers on the stock market. It caught my eye because the study contradicts some crazy ideas that have been floating around about what will happen when that fabled generation hits retirement. Some background. A few self-appointed gurus, like Robert Kiyosaki, have made quite a bit of money selling their "prophecies" of doom and gloom for the stock market when baby boomers retire and begin to withdraw money from retirement accounts. These theories are not backed up with any data, but are based on simplistic notions and fairytales, just like the original Rich Dad Poor Dad book. Oops! The gurus forgot about logic and reality. As the GAO study points out, most baby boomers don't have much money for retirement to begin with. In fact, the wealthiest 5% of baby boomers own over 50% of the assets! (MatureMarket)

New Site Helps You Plan Your Career Voyage
I came across a great site that job seekers should find very helpful as they plan their careers. The site,, was set up by the Department of Labor and is geared toward students, parents and those looking to change careers. I really wish I would have had access to a site like this when I was thinking about what type of career I wanted to pursue because it really provides a great deal of information and advice on "in-demand" careers, salaries and how to get started on the job search.

Deep Release:
Directory of Schools Issues Wake-Up Call to High Tech and Other Workers
Outsourcing is the new "big bad wolf" among the employed. As businesses struggle to streamline and increase efficiency, employees are at risk of losing their jobs. But according to, it does not have to play out that way. For workers who are willing to broaden and increase their skills, outsourcing could lead to increased opportunities within these transforming companies.

Santa Rosa, CA (PRWeb) October 24, 2006 -- After a rigorous program of study and finally landing that "dream job", skilled professionals often look forward to the security and above-average pay scale that comes with the territory. However, because of outsourcing, offshoring, shared resource development and other efficiency-based business strategies, many are watching their dreams dissipate. But there is a way to increase the odds of successfully navigating these unpredictable job currents.

Outsourcing is the new "big bad wolf" among the employed. It is the contracting out of non-core business operations, usually leading to layoffs, as businesses close entire departments in order to save money and increase efficiency. But according to, it does not have to play out that way. For workers who are willing to broaden and increase their skills, outsourcing could lead to increased opportunities within these transforming companies.

For example, a popular outsourcing target is the computer programmer; because a programmer can usually work from any geographical location, transmitting programs via e-mail. The Bureau of Labor Statistics, in its employment forecasts through the year 2014, indicates that jobs for computer programmers will grow at a significantly slower rate than all other computer specialists. However, those who continue to increase their knowledge of the latest programming languages and techniques, and who acquire technical specializations along with other marketable skills, will be more likely to remain in the company, even if their department is streamlined. Those who top off their education and training with an MBA will be especially desirable and versatile in the future job environment.

Online schools provide a way to keep up with the changing pace of business, technology and numerous other fields without sacrificing time away from the workplace. The flexibility of being able to study when and where it is convenient ranks highly among working adults. In a recent study conducted by an independent research firm for Capella University, enrollment in online-only education programs is increasing at an average rate of 35% each year. With a laptop, a modem and an internet connection, the process of insuring job security has become easier to manage. And is the web-place to begin a user-friendly search of online degree and certificate programs.

Along with computer programmers, outsourcing also affects jobs in customer support, information technology, engineering design, data analysis, environmental services, research processes (i.e. genetics & nanotechnology), Medicare, software development, and art & animation. New fields are being tested each day to determine the feasibility of outsourcing; and many jobs that seem secure today may be fair pickings tomorrow.

The use of outsourcing and other efficiency strategies should provide a wake-up call to those who are willing to begin now to take the necessary steps to increase their marketable skills for the inevitable employment changes looming on the horizon.

Since 1999,,, has connected over 17,000,000 potential students to accredited online schools and e-learning information. More than 8,000 online degree and professional certificate programs in over 1,300 schools represent the commitment of to excellence in online education through its partnerships with universities, colleges and trade schools. strives to insure that its partner schools are reputable by utilizing an in-house verification process which reviews accreditation or vocational industry standards relevant to each school. In addition, a comprehensive national directory of high schools in the United States is available on the DOS website, along with homework help and numerous other resources. Career-minded individuals need make only one cyber-stop for all of their distance learning needs.

Deeper Still:

By Garrison Keillor
Tribune Media Services

I would not send my college kid off for a semester abroad if I were you. This week, we have suspended human rights in America, and what goes around comes around. Ixnay habeas corpus.

The U.S. Senate, in all its splendor and majesty, has decided that an "enemy combatant" is any non-citizen whom the president says is an enemy combatant, including your Korean greengrocer or your Swedish grandmother or your Czech au pair, and can be arrested and held for as long as authorities wish without any right of appeal to a court of law to examine the matter. If your college kid were to be arrested in Bangkok or Cairo, suspected of "crimes against the state," and held in prison, you'd assume that an American foreign service officer would be able to speak to your kid and arrange for a lawyer, but this may not be true anymore. Be forewarned.

The Senate also decided it's up to the president to decide whether it's OK to make these enemies stand naked in cold rooms for a couple days in blinding light and be beaten by interrogators. This is now purely a bureaucratic matter: The plenipotentiary stamps the file "enemy combatants" and throws the poor schnooks into prison and at his leisure he tries them by any sort of kangaroo court he wishes to assemble and they have no right to see the evidence against them, and there is no appeal. This was passed by 65 senators and will now be signed by Mr. Bush, put into effect, and in due course be thrown out by the courts.

It's good that Barry Goldwater is dead because this would have killed him. Go back to the Senate of 1964 -- Goldwater, Dirksen, Russell, McCarthy, Javits, Morse, Fulbright -- and you won't find more than 10 votes for it.

None of the men and women who voted for this bill has any right to speak in public about the rule of law anymore, or to take a high moral view of the Third Reich, or to wax poetic about the American Idea. Mark their names. Any institution of higher learning that grants honorary degrees to these people forfeits its honor.

Alexander, Allard, Allen, Bennett, Bond, Brownback, Bunning, Burns, Burr, Carper, Chambliss, Coburn, Cochran, Coleman, Collins, Cornyn, Craig, Crapo, DeMint, DeWine, Dole, Domenici, Ensign, Enzi, Frist, Graham, Grassley, Gregg, Hagel, Hatch, Hutchison, Inhofe, Isakson, Johnson, Kyl, Landrieu, Lautenberg, Lieberman, Lott, Lugar, Martinez, McCain, McConnell, Menendez, Murkowski, Nelson of Florida, Nelson of Nebraska, Pryor, Roberts, Rockefeller, Salazar, Santorum, Sessions, Shelby, Smith, Specter, Stabenow, Stevens, Sununu, Talent, Thomas, Thune, Vitter, Voinovich, Warner.

To paraphrase Sir Walter Scott: Mark their names and mark them well. For them, no minstrel raptures swell. High though their titles, proud their name, boundless their wealth as wish can claim, these wretched figures shall go down to the vile dust from whence they sprung, unwept, unhonored and unsung.

Three Republican senators made a show of opposing the bill and after they'd collected all the praise they could get, they quickly folded. Why be a hero when you can be fairly sure that the Court will dispose of this piece of garbage.

If, however, the Court does not, then our country has taken a step toward totalitarianism. If the government can round up someone and never be required to explain why, then it's no longer the United States of America as you and I always understood it. Our enemies have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. They have made us become like them.

I got some insight last week into who supports torture when I went down to Dallas to speak at Highland Park Methodist Church. It was spooky. I walked in, was met by two burly security men with walkie-talkies, and within 10 minutes was told by three people that this was the Bushes' church and that it would be better if I didn't talk about politics. I was there on a book tour for "Homegrown Democrat," but they thought it better if I didn't mention it. So I tried to make light of it: I told the audience, "I don't need to talk politics. I have no need even to be interested in politics -- I'm a citizen, I have plenty of money and my grandsons are at least 12 years away from being eligible for military service." And the audience applauded! Those were their sentiments exactly. We've got ours, and who cares?

The Methodists of Dallas can be fairly sure that none of them will be snatched off the streets, flown to Guantanamo, stripped naked, forced to stand for 48 hours in a freezing room with deafening noise, so why should they worry? It's only the Jews who are in danger, and the homosexuals and gypsies. The Christians are doing just fine. If you can't trust a Methodist with absolute power to arrest people and not have to say why, then whom can you trust?
