We want to be the trusted partner for organizations in their digital transformation (Dx) journey says Cherian Thomas, Director at Wysetek.
Digital Transformation is the new norm with new technologies like HCI, Cloud, SDx, AI making inroads into the IT infra of organizations. CIOs and their teams are also grappling with the digital technologies and its adoption in their environment to stay IT savvy, help business grow and company stay competitive.
Wysetek Systems Technologists has been transitioning from pure SI to services Provider Company and now also dabbling with Cloud computing for its customers. The twenty nine year old technology company is maintaining a cordial relationship through its alliances with leading technology OEMs and offering their solutions/ services to enterprises and large enterprises across India.
Will the expectations of CIOs from SI companies like Wysetek change in 2019? “CIOs want to work with a company that helps them meet both ends of keeping cost under control and derive productivity, says Cherian Thomas, Director, Wysetek Systems Technologists.
“We want to be a trusted partner for CIOs and LOBs in their digital transformation journey as they look on proficient SI company to help them choose from wide area of new tech like HCI, Cloud, Security, mobility. They also expect us to assist their IT team in end-to-end project to simplify their complex ITinfra,” says Cherian.
There are numerous benefits that Wysetek can provide to its customers through its alliances with technology OEMs. As Cherian says, “We provide the best of technology and update to customers in minimum time. With our strong investments in skills in our various practices, the customers can leverage best value from the Technology OEM solutions. Our project management and support infrastructure gives them the added comfort and confidence in our team.”
There is a trend of CIO emerging into CDO (Chief Digital Officer) across many organizations? With that change in designation of CIO, we also have to be more of a digital partner to CIO or now CDO at some places, says Cherian.
Another change as per him is that Wysetek team now speaks more to CXOs and LOBs at their customer end than just CIOs. “This trend will continue in 2019 as business stakeholders are having more say in IT and in many cases they are driving their own IT projects,” says Cherian
What does Wysetek as a channel partner to leading tech OEMs in various domains like compute, storage, security ,HCI, mobility, cloud, open source expect this year? “Better margins is the number one expectation from tech OEMs as the marketplace is now fairly competitive. Tech OEMs should have more training sessions for our teams on overall solutioning as IT solutions are more beneficial to the end customers than pure product. And of course transparent deal registration and protection is a must to ensure channel partners do not indulge in price war,” says Cherian.
Technology vendors can invest into training and skill development program industry wise. Eg. Training fresh engineering graduates for a particular technology, suggests Cherian at Wysetek Systems Technologists.
