Re: Beware of what is being included in the data reduction ratio

Hi Dimitris, here's my experience with NetApp:

"I may not be a good manager, but I'd like to think I'm a good leader..."

-> These skills and character traits are complementary. I've heard above line 3 times in my life and all 3 "managers" turned out to be duds. This line is a lame excuse. A company can only absorb so many leaders without management skills...

"I don't know much about storage, but I've worked in the channel before and we sold xyz..."

-> Go back to the pub where you can do less damage to the company....

"I'm not technical but it's all about relationships anyway...."

-> No it's not. You need to know your shit before you can built relationships. The "high-tech" industry is not for you with that attitude. Even in sales.

"We size the solution based on what the customer is willing to pay, otherwise they'll go to our competitor..."

-> There go NetApp's core values....
