Here in dot boasts the top companies leaders in the world in their fields come here to this small Swiss village and my next guest is a man who founded a company whose software.
Is so effective that it helps its clients have what he calls a 22 advantage he's also the co owner of the Golden State Warriors.
And he's been named by Esquire as the Indian Christopher Walken.
We're happy to have that background -- 38% of your company's revenues last year came from the European area of the Euro zone.
That's an area that -- right now what does that mean for your company.
Where -- no excuses company and we have had great success in Europe.
We continue to have great success in Europe.
So if you're a company that needs to upset process -- need to manage risk.
The economic environment doesn't really matter.
You still need to buy -- software so we expect to have a strong.
Stronger than what you just -- stronger than what we just came so an improvement that's highly unusual considering all that's going on there.
Well we have grown our revenues 50% in the last two years.
We've grown our operating margins 850 points in the last three years.
So we're not gonna make excuses.
I think really what you see happening is this 21 century companies and there's the -- news.
And if you're on the right side of history.
I believe the future's bright even in Europe.
Here Davos I would imagine that one of the top topics of conversation is how do we fix Europe's issues and problems.
Any ideas from a -- -- -- like you.
Well I think that you have to be -- Good behavior stop rewarding bad behavior.
I'm hearing you say.
Stop giving money to countries that are not.
Properly run yet there is now the belief that if you hit a country that is really stumbling with too much austerity that -- tree growth immediately.
Right so obviously it has to be.
But I think that investing in the future.
Over the longer -- I think it things will be fine so we're very optimistic about the opportunities that we have in the European market.
And even markets that are supposed to be defense like the financial services market.
-- -- -- -- Those -- right because you sell software to than the New York Stock Exchange for example to help from their trading floors and other big banks as well.
Exactly and also to help but custom was -- crossing their customs.
So this a big battle right now.
Full -- and people are trying to not get new customers but also process than existing customers.
And that's -- to go comes.
What -- that you and some world leaders came up with to bring to the table here at Davos this year something called top -- which was.
Sort of built as a FaceBook for the world's most powerful people.
And the whole drive behind it is if there are huge issues say for example the -- -- -- or the Fukushima disaster.
These people could hop on the social network and say.
How to why stop.
This problem from getting bicker and -- and you get people who are powerful with their own resources who could help the situation.
Suddenly the blockers are attacking this idea right.
Is that fair.
I don't think it's fair.
I think and again we aren't saying much about it right now -- for that very reason.
But we believe.
That if you get the right information -- that I played so that I time.
And you put it in the right context than you can make this planet a better place so we can't prevent natural disasters.
But would -- can do is we can minimize what happens -- have to.
That -- we can minimize the negative impact of that disaster so if you can unlock the collective wisdom of the plan.
Then we believe you can solve many of the problems.
We face today.
So when somebody calls it just a FaceBook for the world's richest people that's misguided.
Again we aren't commenting on -- but that is absolutely not.
That the case of let's talk about solving problems in this country and the world were looking at for global food shortages.
And issues that matter to somebody like you.
Who came from India with very few dollars in his pocket.
Made after MIT at the age of fifteen.
And really believe that that there are opportunities.
Where you can -- the best ideas from an event like Davos.
What we're -- like is -- from here that's the big question.
What we think that if you can democratize.
Information if you can democratizing the years.
And you can make that accessible to everyone.
Then we can unlock that collective -- him.
And do things that we just never -- you know this building the Smart grids or it's preventing.
We charges water shortages.
Stopping -- makes.
You can find out what sandwich Shaq had a lot.
So we have access to amazing amounts of information.
-- find out the simplest things.
About what could happen.
Natural disaster and it's so we believe that if you can apply that kind of knowledge.
Democratize that information and get it to the right place and we can have a huge impact.
So Shaquille O'Neal sandwich -- solving the nuclear meltdown we know which one is more important exactly.
You know looking at at what you hope to achieve in your future what is the number one thing that you -- for in your life.
As it pertains to both -- and -- the world's problems.
Will be are driven by disbelief.
That data exist.
And you just have to get it to the names and you're able to do that.
Then you can unlock the potential.
-- -- -- How the Golden State Warriors -- do this -- what it's as coach Mark Jackson says the Philippine progress they kick.
It always the diplomat yeah I think it's easier it's actually -- two.
A pandemic but yeah.
-- to navigate through the rules of the NBA it's -- Okay but I bet we'll be watching you and the Golden State Warriors in Tibco Software thank you very much calculus that that -- the.
