Give me your bullish thoughts on VMware’s future?

There is a sense or resilience that a company or team needs to be able to take advantage of new opportunities and build those [capabilities] for customers. But also, to be able to react to the unexpected things which occur. My feeling and my sense of VMware, both as an engineering team and as a company, is that VMware is inherently a very resilient company. VMware builds resilience into everything that we do. That’s why I’m bullish about the company’s future. Because I can’t predict what will happen on the other side of COVID-19, for example, but VMware’s culture and resilience allows us to be able to deal with those things. For instance, with COVID-19, we were privileged to be a company that is highly distributed – 99 percent of our engineers are now working from home. At the same time, we were able to do that for many of our customers. So, I’m bullish because VMware is resilient. We have engineering processes and a management approach, which is pragmatic in saying, ‘Okay, here’s a problem. Here’s a challenge. How are we going to deal with it?’ That is the essence of VMware.
