Talk about the progress HPE made during the quarter with the GreenLake everything-as-a-service pivot?
If you look at our numbers [in the fiscal third quarter] with regard to the as a service pivot, we see an acceleration whether it is the 46 percent growth [in as a service orders] that we saw in the quarter, the ARR, which is now over $700 million, the number of customers coming to the GreenLake platform or the [$2 billion GreenLake] deal with the NSA (National Security Agency).
Everyone is looking at GreenLake as a true alternative to the public cloud. That is where our edge-to-cloud vision is absolutely resonating, because that is what GreenLake is. It just happens that you can consume it as a service.
When I look at the trends into the future and the way we work today—which obviously has been changed by the pandemic and the need to digitize everything—it gives me the clarity of thought that obviously this is now my No. 1 priority to accelerate this transformation to go farther and faster and to really deliver tangible improvements on what we are already doing in a short period of time because speed is of the essence.
