How do you see the future of the workplace or school campus changing as a result of the pandemic? 

It's a good question. I think, certainly, we have proven that we are going to be as productive, if not more productive, working from home as a population. I think there'll be more proactive measures taken by corporations to support work from home more wholeheartedly, and I think there will be infrastructure investments to enable that to happen. A certain percent of the population with a workforce that can work from home will probably make a permanent adjustment to working from home.

Fundamentally, I think the transformation that is going on will be accelerated. The post-pandemic response is going to be the emergence of the edge as an important area of work for our partners. To me, the edge is all about data -- new types of data that is being created at the edge and how we process that data. AI and AI technologies are going to be extremely important to address this emerging rise of the edge. We will talk a lot more about how AI and AI operations in general are going to help customers with automating what they are going to do at the edge and provide insights into their business-critical systems. I think it is very clear that digital transformation is going to accelerate because of this pandemic. If you ever had a doubt that digital is not foundational to your business, that doubt has been completely removed by how we've all basically come around to using digital platforms to continue our work and be productive.
