What impact will the Micro Focus deal have on HPE and partners?

I think it is the right thing for the employees, customers and partners. I think they'll do a really good job with some of the mature software assets and some of the growth assets like Vertica.

I think this portfolio will be stronger with Micro Focus owning it. I think it is an opportunity for partners to get into the software business with a company that is going to make the investments in the business and has some really nice growth assets like Suse. So I think it is a really good opportunity for the partners. Obviously, we'll have a very close relationship with the software company. When we have customers that want an IT operations management offering, obviously it will be the Micro Focus offering. I would encourage partners to take another look at this portfolio.
