Karanka unsure about Tomlin’s long-term future

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesNottingham Forest manager Aitor Karanka said he was unsure about Lee Tomlin’s future after the playmaker scored twice in a 5-2 win at QPR.Tomlin, who previously played under Karanka at Middlesbrough, has now scored three times since arriving on loan from Cardiff last month.Asked if there was any prospect of a permanent move this summer, Karanka said: “I don’t know yet. It’s a player I like but we just need to keep going, keep thinking about our task. He is a Cardiff player and we will see.”The Spaniard added: “When you know the manager and you know the style everything is easier.“I’m really pleased because he’s a player who sometimes creates doubts about him but with me he’s playing really well. We need to give him time, but I know him.”Embed from Getty ImagesAfter Tomlin’s brace, Joe Lolley made it 3-0 before Massimo Luongo pulled a goal back and Matty Cash restored Forest’s two-goal advantage.Matt Smith reduced the deficit before Ben Brereton scored an injury-time fifth for Karanka’s side.The clinical display emphatically ended Forest’s goal drought – they had failed to score in eight of their previous 10 league matches.Karanka insisted: “I wasn’t concerned. One day it will arrive – and today has been the best example.“The team has been aggressive on the pitch and, when we have chances, some days we will miss but some days we will score.“I told the players before the game that today should be a reflection of the improvement of the team.“There has been an improvement and today there was the perfect mixture; we were organised on the pitch, aggressive and confident. It’s the way that we have to keep playing.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebookby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksRecommended for youAspireAbove.comRemember Pauley Perrette?

SaaS to Further Erode US IT?

first_imgInfoWorld‘s Immodest Predictions for 2007 are headlined in their December 18th issue.  They include:Sun Microsystems will bounce back with great technology and Open Source offeringsCPU performance (64-bit and denser multi-cores) will trump “green” and low-wattCisco will continue to push security and will make security company acquisitionsOpen Source Java won’t play out to be very much different that the Java we know now Offshore SaaS providers will seriously challenge US incumbants like Salesforce.comThe last prediction about SaaS was made by Ephraim Schwartz and it may well have some truth in it.  He predicts that in early 2007 an offshore Salesforce.com clone, maybe from India, Russia, Botswana or someplace will come along that is cheaper and will be functionally superior to what Salesforce has to offer. Schwartz goes on to say, that based on Gartner’s prediction that by 2008 70 percent of SaaS offerings will target business units and line managers, SaaS also is creating a trend where business units will bypass traditional IT organizations.Global SaaS is definitely alive and well.  In a recent Springboard study, analysts found that global growth of SaaS was robust, and in particular, identified India as the hub of SaaS activity in Asia.  The study shows that in Asia SaaS adoption is being driven by primarily by cost.  Winners in that environment are sure to be cost-efficient.Does that mean that US-based SaaS players should be worried?  A dose of Andy Grove paranoia is probably healthy.  SaaS, by its nature, further lowers the barrier to entry, so it is likely that SaaS will take up roots world-wide, enabling ever more intense global competition.But will Schwartz’s prediction be valid for 2007?  He has singled out Salesforce as the target, but it may be more likely that global SaaS offerings would be more successful first in other niche areas.  Hosted CRM is already crowded and populated with many Open Source offerings, like SugarCRM or Centric CRM, and Open Source eliminates many of the advantages of offshore development.Further, Salesforce has the advantage of incumbancy and the fact that US companies prefer local support.  Salesforce’s AppExchange initiative which draws together a community of ISV and partners into what is being called an ecosystem will be something that will be hard for new players to replicate, offshore or onshore.  At least in 2007.last_img read more
