- Thankx for suggestions Jirka, hotelove sluzby still smells of accomodation
and tiny little soap bars to me, I'll probably stick with the English term
and maybe explain it....
As for outsourcing - I think Nathan is closer to the meaning in this
document (use of someone else's resources, i.e. third party) - but couldn't
it also be outsourcing your company's work to outside of your offices, still
using your employees to do it (called telecommuting as well??)
Here's the sentence again:
"With high-speed voice and data broadband connections, you've got the
superstructure in place to support the tools you need-from hoteling to
videoconferencing, to maximizing your outsource potential and streamlining
your administrative regime".
There's lots of talk about flexible office space and "intelligent" buildings
with integrated IT networks blah, blah in the document, which made me think
that outsourcing (in this case) could mean this - saving on office space by
having people work somewhere else - is this too far from its original
As for outsourcing, I thought it meant

always in its meaning of hiring external resources. My suggestion is
to make externi pracovnici or externi firmy (as already proposed) out
> superstructure in place to support the tools you need-from hotelingThere has been a new trend over a last couple of years of so
called "Internet hotels". An Internet hotel is simply a building with
all the networking infrastructure in place where you put your servers
and the hotel takes care of it. There is also another option which is
hire of equipemnt rather than just location of premises.
In the particular context I'd rather use something
like "infrastruktura, nutna k vyuziti vsech nejmodernejsich
technologii (napr. flexibilni kancelar, videokonference ).
But you asked about an established Czech term and here I can
definitely say, no there hasn't been any such term so far.
Just my 0.02 CZK ;-)
