You Ever Knew That Crap???

I talked with Cleber Morais, president of Avaya, responsible for a substantive outcome and positioning the company in the hypercompetitive market where it operates:
1) What are the biggest dreams and nightmares of Brazilian business leaders?
The growth of the company is the main goal, after which the executive does not dream of keeping your company's business "up and running." At the same time perpetuate his business in an environment as competitive as today, is the fuel that we motiva.Outro great object is related to the talents, how to maintain and retain professionals. I worry too much about what they offer and how to keep them. I'm always looking for new programs, quality of life, different training, activities to collaborate with the development of talents and the same sets us apart as an employer and provide the team built a distinctive environment for work. Finally, another major goal is to innovate, that is, be prepared for new challenges, difficulties for businesses to come in and always be aware of all the opportunities in the future.
2) In your opinion, in the second half of 2009, which will be the behavior of the Brazilian economy?
I have a very optimistic about the second half of 2009 and 2010. I think the worst economy in Brazil has passed. Our government created the necessary foundation to have a growing economy and become a major player in the world. I am actually very optimistic about the recovery and business growth.
3) If you were to write a Letter to a Young Leader, what are the three key messages that would?
First, believe in your dream and go after him. For more distant and difficult it is to fight with perseverance and dedication and they will become realidade.Depois, invest in yourself, your career and your education and bet on their potential. Today more than ever, the young executive has to create its development plan and put it into practice. Make sure that most of the successful results come in the way of how you prepare and adapt themselves to make diferença.E finally, I would say, trust your feeling, that most times lead to more accurate direction and never sure to always work with dedication, passion and ethics.

The acquisition of 
Skype by Microsoft starts to date. Damn even. And since the announcement sensational, nothing, we are still waiting the arrival of Skype on Windows Phone 7 (especially since it was originally scheduled for late 2011) and it is known whether the tool will eventually voip by land on the platform. Or just if you also expect his arrival with impatience, then know that one of the great names of the company, Rick Osterloh , was led to speak on the subject at the last CES . And he said, Skype is expected to arrive soon on Windows Phone 7. Great, of course, but do not rejoice in so far as it will likely be as an ordinary application such as those can be found on iOS and Android.
Skype: the launch of Windows Phone 7 is very soon!
Mind you, it will be well, eh, but I think the best is yet to come. The strength of Windows Phone 7 is indeednatively integrate third-party applications in the mobile platform. If you want the latest Twitter updates from your friends bloggers, so you do not need to open an application, simply go to the Address Book and display the correct tab to know everything about digital activity. Such a course for friends, family, colleagues and all the groups that you took the time to create. As stated in the advertisement, the mobile platform from Microsoft allows us to save considerable time.
Or precisely, it is likely that Redmond to do the same with Skype . One can imagine many things but the most likely hypothesis is that the engineers of the company opted for an integration of the tool contacts. Genre you open the files of Uncle Teddy, you find his phone number, his email, any information that go far and a little button that will allow you to pass a Skype call in a snap. Same also for the video. There, sure, it would be a new asset of choice for the platform.
But then, the next update of Windows Phone 7 is not for now. If Tango is scheduled for second quarter 2012, we must unfortunately wait for the fourth quarter to take advantage of Apollo. In other words, we have not finished taking our troubles patiently ...
