The Avnet Agenda: Top Execs Talk Cisco, Vblock, Oracle, Cloud


Don't Panic

Bawol added that Avnet has no plans to change the way it does business with Oracle.

"We've taken the tack to leave the team whole," he said. "We need to do that for the benefit of our VARs, and we think it would not be in their best interests to just guess at what the outcomes are going to be. That would be wrong and would put them in a precarious situation."
