There is going to be a lot of customer value in this. The problem right now is I think it will take time for this value to be fully realized. That could lead to some friction early with vendors and customers.

Re: Value
@dcawrey but you do think that the short term pain is worth the long term gain, don't you?

Re: Value
@Ariella, In my opinion, it absolutely is but the question that lingers in my mind is whether both sides will be patient enough to realize it.

No Adding Things to Virtualization
Virtualization is something unique and inventive so I donb't donet they should add anything new to it since its has a lot to offer in it self.

Re: No Adding Things to Virtualization
It is very unique. I agree, I think we should first see everything that virtualization has to bring to the table before we start adding in other things.

innovation..
> "... the non-incumbent vendors are being more innovative and better aligned with our future mode of operation, as they have no revenue streams to protect."

This is exactly why we need more competition and fewer barriers to entry or expansion for smaller service providers. Transformation won't happen on its own without some disruption.

Re: innovation..
I agree. It seems like there's that sweet spot once the early innovators have been established when the later vendors are able to benefit from a clearer sense of the emerging big picture, the path the early innovators have already paved, and learning from *others'* mistakes.
