The purpose of GlobalLink Network

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

I named my company GlobalLink Network as a description for the service that would be performed by the business.  GlobalLink means just that: the ability to link people, processes, and technology anywhere in the world.  The Internet has opened up possibilities that were never considered when I first was getting into technology in the early 70′s.  While the possibilities are endless as to how we might link person to person, in the business IT field, we are still burdened with 1970′s type systems.  In my intro of myself I mentioned how tough change is.  The large investments in IT technology in the 70′s and 80′s make change difficult and expensive for many large companies that depend on old systems (and ideas) for running their business.

We are all familar with the Social Networking systems like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc., but most of the business systems in operation today have applications from 2 or 3 decades ago, with the latest technology changes being the addition of e-Mail and Websites.  Part of my Blog will be to introduce small “social” changes to businesses that don’t require changing everything all at once … just starting a Continuous Improvement path to the future.  Welcome to the journey!

The second part of my company name is Network.  In this age of Aggregation, networking with others to create new business offerings that were not possible in the past, will lead to a business “revival” and pave the way for a new economy.  Most of us are starting to understand that the new economy will require each of us to “make our job” if we are to find work that will allow us to continue (or improve upon) a lifestyle that we once knew.  Networking is key to that search for work or a career.
