QUOTE: The “Chilli CIO” on vendor culture of greed and profiteering
The Big Boy vendors have been arrogant for way too long. They don’t listen anymore but players like IBM, Oracle, HP, Wincor Nixdorf, etc should not forget they are not the only players in town. We have choices. These one time IT product/service providers must learn to walk on their knees (again like when they first started business, humbly).
Unfortunately their respective sales people are bearing the brunt of the IT vendors’ greed and profit-at-all-costs (profiteering) culture and to the detriment of their business reputation.
