Talk about how you successfully rebuilt Dell EMC's storage business.

One of the changes I'm most pleased with and we're witnessing the early dividends of is, we've become one team. Our storage organization was siloed and compartmentalized. It was to the point where you had fierce supporters of a brand or a product inside the organization and we were not necessarily stepping back and looking at market needs, customer needs and technology trends. My view 15 months ago, I had XtremIO, ScaleIO, VMAX, Unity, VNX, SC – all competing almost internally with one another and dividing up engineers and not sharing IP across the boundaries. It was highly fragmented and we weren't all rowing in the same direction, some weren't even in the same boat. Fast forward to today, I only have one storage team and one portfolio that we look at. We have PowerMax, a new midrange product by the end of next year and we have an entry level product with the PowerVault ME4. We've become a single team and now we share IP, engineers, algorithms and methods that quite honestly we couldn't before.
