An industry that is setting new speed records for change
Su Hawk, President, Colorado Technology Assoc.enclosure-voice 1077_ 9/12/11 - Change is one of Larry's favorite topics. He talks with Su Hawk, president, Colorado Technology Association, as she charges on to stay with and ahead of an industry that is setting new speed records for change. Su gives us an update on Colorado Technology Association, formerly CSIA and a map of the industry's top challenges. Su said they changed their name earlier this year to reflect the work that they're doing for a vibrant technology eco-system. When asked about the greatest challenges facing the industry, Su gave us six items they work on continuously. For context-they have roundtables with industry experts and executives on an going basis to understand what's really most important to them. The number one issue that they bring up is 'talent pool'. and the increasing number of jobs in our industry with the scarce workforce that's available. It's always been an issue with the technology industry, even during our hardest economic times. The unemployment in IT has only been at maybe 3%. The second issue is healthcare. It's become harder to provide for employees, it's harder to find great healthcare plans for their employees. Third thing is patent laws. A growing concern and so are patent trolls. As our companies in Colorado grow they need to be aware of copyright infringement, 'fishing expeditions' - we've really got to pay attention. Fourth issue is international. More and more companies are looking at other countries - so we have to take a look at everything from 'safe harbor' laws to what we can do around talent. The fifth issue is always access to capital. The Colorado Technology Association is always focused on that and figuring out how to provide not only early stage, but second stage companies, that important access to capital. The sixth issue is regulation and policy. A last point/reminder... DEMOgala is coming up October 14th with dozens of great speakers focusing on Colorado this year.

Don Poulter, VP Services Deliver, ViaWest Data Centers Consume 2% of the World’s Total Energy Supply
enclosure-voice 596_ 9/06/11 [12/8/08]- "If data centers don’t or have not yet adopted a ‘green strategy’ they’ll be left behind by customers are demanding it, left behind in the market place simply because of profit and loss expectations. Adopting an energy efficiency strategy helps drive bottom line performance. So ViaWest benefits both ways, socially our impact is that we are watching out for the well being of the environment through these strategies that we will adopt," emphasizes Don Poulter. In 2007, Don joined Viawest, Inc. as its first Vice-President, Service Delivery. In this role, Poulter has oversight for all data center operations, service provisioning, purchasing, project and product management. Don shared with Larry a number of 'how to's' for employing a green strategy. As an example, "Cold aisle management… air is where we think there are opportunities for improvement. Every piece of new equipment we buy must have a variable frequency drive. That allows us to operate the unit at less than 100% output. Depending on needs that unit can wind up or wind down based on requirements. Lastly we are launching our ‘server virtualization’ which allows us to reduce the number of servers in our data center by putting more applications on to a server and running them at a greater output." Don also talks about the Green Grid which is a consortium of companies dedicated to advancing energy efficiency – ViaWest is a member of that consortium. Listen, there's more...

Guy Kawasaki, Author, Enchantment Guy Kawasaki: The art of changing hearts, minds and actions
Enchantment, by Guy Kawasakienclosure-voice 1074_ 9/12/11 - Three years ago when I last interviewed our guest, Guy Kawasaki, managing partner of Garage Technology Ventures and founder of Alltop.com, we were going through some tougher times, I asked Guy, how do you think this will play out? Guy replied, "I'm not a visionary or an oracle, but I'll tell you what I'd tell an entrepreneur, which is... "Plug your ears and keep going!" Guy's latest and tenth book is, 'ENCHANTMENT, The art of changing hearts, minds and actions.' Guy's unique style, he replied, "The word is purely a marketing thing. You know, I wanted to own a word, like Tom Peters owns excellence... and I wanted my word to be enchantment. And I wanted the image [from the book cover], the butterfly to be recognizable as enchantment. So that's why the particular word, in a marketing sense. In a philosophical sense, I think people can aspire to a higher relationship than simply closing sales. So this would be enchanting people, getting people to believe in your dream as much as you do." Larry asked what motivated Guy to get on this topic. Well, he's been enchanting and evangelizing people for the about two-and-a-half decades now. It was time to collect all his lessons and put it out there so people could achieve more success with their new products, new services, new companies, new ideas. "I think if you enchant your customers you'll have a much better relationship with them, you'll have a longer relationship with them, probably a more profitable relationship and they too will be happier. I think it will help people have better relationships with their customers, and their prospective customers, which will in turn, lead to success. It's very difficult to foster this kind of relationship, particularly in a time when people are so skeptical about others and pessimistic. If you wait for the turnaround to occur and everybody is all happy and things are going honky-dory again, it may be too late." ...listen for much more...

Holli Riebel, CBSA, President/CEO Challenges and solutions for the Bio and Life Sciences industry
enclosure-voice 1076_ 9/12/11 - The Bio and Life Sciences industry faces huge challenges raising venture capital in a difficult economy. Investing in an industry that takes ten to twelve years and over $1.3 Billion to bring a drug to market just might shift the action to some widget or a software program that can be flipped to realize a return in just six months. That's the challenge facing the Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA) and president/CEO, Holli Riebel. "Also", she said, "venture capitalists reside more on the coasts, and so we're always having a more difficult time attracting venture capital out here in the middle of the country." Coming up this month September 21st and 22nd we will witness the first "Rocky Mountain Life Science Investor and Partnering Conference" with the Opening Night Reception at the Governor's Mansion. It's really a venue to bring some of our top technologies and companies from Colorado and some of our surrounding states, to present their technologies to VC's and strategic partners. This is very different this year. Strategic partners are the pharmaceutical companies that are divesting themselves from their R&D departments. Now instead, looking at investing in many small biotech and device companies at earlier stages, in addition to research institutions. So we're seeing closer partnerships with companies at an earlier stage. Relevant right now, "The flu season is coming up" Holli said, "and there is a company that has actually developed a universal flu vaccine, making the annual, sometimes failed flu shot unnecessary. Another company has developed the first FDA Approved lymphoma drug for dogs. There's also a really interesting device company and they've developed a new heart valve for younger people."

Success and sustainability through good and bad times
Roy Dimoff, President & CEO, ViaWest, Inc. Larry Nelson, Director, w3w3® Media Network enclosure-voice 1073_ 9/06/11 - The path to success isn't always flash, bang, big cash and lots of noise. In the long run it is knowing your customer, getting close, staying close, and understanding your customers needs. That's what Roy Dimoff attributes ViaWest’s ‘good luck' to. It was 1999, when we met Roy Dimoff and Nancy Philips as they started Via West here in Denver. "Back in the day", money was practically being thrown at companies. Here in Denver we had a number of very large startups going back to '99, a little pre '99. Local competitors had the advantage with 100's of millions in investments.... ViaWest took a different path, kind of low key. If you were watching from a distance. But up close it was action packed, prudent and practical. Back then ViaWest had one office which still exists. Today they have 22 data centers in five states and six major markets. Roy has a habit of checking in with his HR department and they keep adding employees, which is a good thing, especially in today's market, and they're well over 300 people now in those five states. "For all the things that happened and that we've seen in the 12 years that ViaWest has been around... And, certainly living through two recessions is one of them. Knock on wood, Larry.... Things are going extremely well. We are part of a great industry. It's nice to be in this position today. To be able to reflect back at those difficult times, knowing that you survived and succeeded in some fashion." Roy said. In fact ViaWest is in a leadership position today. Looking back we remember favorite words guiding their strategic path, prudence and pragmatism. Larry asked about challenges facing business today. Roy said, "You know, I think similar to the stock market, there are a lot of ups and downs and you have to be prepared to alter your business plan if there's dramatic changes in the economy. We really reflect on our capital investment and our cash conservation and really want to reflect on all the touch points there. And, do we want to be a little less aggressive if we see a double dip recession. I think companies should definitely, definitely understand their debt position, their cash position, their growth... and really understand their expense level extremely well - knowing where they can alter if they have to." ViaWest supports the community, sponsors many non-profits and has won many awards...listen for more great advice...

Matthew Taylor, ViaWest Business Agility with the Cloud: Do you need an IT department/CIO?
enclosure-voice 741 9/06/11 [11/16/09]- Defrag 2009 - what an education - it was the place to be. We corralled Matthew Taylor, Vice President of Managed Services and IT & IS Operations, ViaWest, covering seven states and 16 data centers. Matt was a keynote speaker at the Defrag 2009 Conference. Matt said, "I have a long title because we wear a lot of hats at ViaWest, there's a real value to that for organizations." Topic Matt delivered: Business Agility with the Cloud. We wanted to know, what is the cloud? Matthew replied, "Well, there isn't a definition for 'the cloud' and depending on who you're talking to they have a different definition of the cloud. What we have to take this back to is, the user, customer or CIO, whoever you are, what is it you're trying to get out of a solution overall? So to a business person how do you get agility out of a cloud? You get agility out of a cloud ... and for some this is a painful answer... through your CIO. There are people out there, the press, organizations that have said, 'now the cloud is out there and you don't need your IT department/CIO' -- That's absolutely not the case. The customer needs to make sure they have flexibility to be able to scale up or scale down; pay for what they have to pay for but not overpay. At the same time they need to make sure they have a high level of security. So when you combine all these things, you start to say, I really need to understand each portion of my company from an application standpoint. What do I need to do with it and make sure I'm managing the data and the way those applications work together. What is your best approach and to me that is a CIO and why today, the CIO is more important than ever." Listen for some additional suggestions. Larry asked about SAAS (software as a Service) "...in the last couple of years, I'd heard that was the cloud." Matt agrees it was one of the first offerings from the cloud, there are load testing applications etc., watch the smoke and mirrors - do your homework. He also provides...
