Re: "Operationalising our Strategy"
Not sure if it is Tom Georegen's era in NetApp is responsible for this. But for sure he is on the hook for turnaround (if lucky).
I think NetApp strategy really went wrong and they have to take a hit to fix it. Even if they fix it, it will not be same as what they were in last 15-years as traditional storage market is shrinking YoY.
NetApp always chose path different than it's competition in initial 15-20 years. But recently they followed others for certain things (like FlashRay) and same time failed to adopt effective strategies to fend off new headwinds like AWS/Azure (cloud), hyper-convergence, All-Flash, data center technology, etc.
Another failure is on the acquisition front, neither do aggressive acquisitions nor digest acquisitions well!
