'Stove-piped, not joined-up' blue-chip vendors 'frustrating' to work with, says CIO


"Traditional blue-chip technology vendors cause problems in the way that they deliver products and are too rigid about their pricing strategies, especially if you don't represent a large customer.

That's what Chris Ashworth, IT director at Genting Casinos UK told Computing during a recent interview.

'When you work with some of the blue-chip vendors, they're very stove-piped and not joined up in the way they deliver and that causes problems. We've had to use vendors like that as part of our delivery chain and it's been a frustrating experience,’ he explained.

Ashworth contrasted the relationship with blue-chip vendors with the one Genting has with big data, analytics and business intelligence provider TIBCO which ‘have understood us and shaped their offering for us,’ he said, before describing the impact of the deal.”
