Brainware: Computex's Top Talent Sounds Off On The Secret To The Company's Success
CRN speaks with the top executive talent at Computex to get their perspective into the secret to the company's Brainware consulting methodology and success.
Worth Davis, Vice President, Chief Technology Officer
One of the top technologists in the business, Davis has been the driving force behind keeping Computex at the top of the technology pyramid.
"We have gone through six rebirths with all of the major technology shifts in the business," said Davis, a 20-year CIO veteran and a former director of IT for $77 billion energy conglomerate Engie. "Technology changes rapidly. Every 18 months we reinvent ourselves. Anybody that wants to ride the laurels of what they have done is not the right person for Computex."
Davis, who spent 20 years buying IT in the energy business, is responsible for evaluating and vetting any and all technology offerings. "We look for technologies that are disruptive, that can open up new doors for us or that do something cool," said Davis. "We were one of VMware's first partners and one of the first partners for Pure Storage, Data Domain."
"We know what works and what doesn’t. We have seen many new product launches from major vendors over the years. Some change the industry, and others go down in flames. We protect our customers from making the wrong decisions. They depend on us."
What is the secret to the company's success?
"Our customers believe in the Computex brand and depend on us to provide them with a comprehensive technology solution. It is also responsiveness and focus on the customer. That is sometimes technology responsiveness or sales responsiveness. It is all about doing the right thing for the customer."
