Gillai: I think you will be seeing the continuation of the strategy we put in place in April 2012. In the next 24 months, you'll see significant announcements around platforms and capabilities, both from a usage and from a developer's perspective.

We talked about OpenStack two years ago, and at that point there was a lot of naysayers. And we were among the first to say hybrid is important. Now, two years forward, everything we have said would happen is happening. No one is questioning the need for hybrid -- 75 percent of CIOs questioned said they want a hybrid delivery model.
