    Pros

    This is a company that genuinely cares about the communities it operates in and it's team members. Plenty of investment in upskilling staff and has a solid medium term strategy and roadmap.

    Cons

    There is still come baggage from being so successful in the HyperVisor space and gaining access to Executives is at times challenging when that legacy is still what you are known for with end user executives.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the transition to SaaS despite the pain that will come with this.
