On IBM’s Red Hat integration and keeping separate channel programs
I have to have two programs, because Red Hat is neutral. And we committed to that when we brought them in. They work with five thousand different hardware providers and all the chipsets on the planet. All of that has to be maintained. How I preserve that independence and that neutrality? So, it’s not so much a program approach. When I think about the footprint of the market, the use cases, The Red Hat partner has to have the ability to say, “No, I’m neutral. I can take whatever I want.” That’s how I think Linux has taken over as the de facto operating system in the world. But we will take it under advisement. Can we do more in terms of maybe combining the morals, I’ll call it, but not necessarily the actual partner go to market. I have to leave that choice to the market.
