Does Acronis do most of its development organically or do you depend heavily on acquisitions for future product development?
By default, we plan to do everything in-house. Our acquisitions are opportunistic. I would think that in the next three years, 90 percent [of our development] is in-house, 10 percent is acquisitions. With our strategy, acquisitions also mean in-house development because we can‘t use the products we acquire right away. We have to make them part of our product and our platform, and that requires internal development.
At the end of the day, we‘re very lucky with acquisitions. We can have 75 percent organic development, but worst-case scenario 95 percent organic. But we’re going to continue doing acquisitions. We are very interested in offering better protection. Of course, we are a business. We want to make money. But the most important thing we do is to protect workloads, data, applications, and systems through our partners for our customers.
