Ever notice that the KPIs and the tableau reports seem to matter more than actual work and results? My team has 5 people who just write reports and its a small team!!! Everyone's always asking, got that in a report so I can roll it up?
It's more about how many 1 million dollar+ deals got closed rather than how well our stuff works. It seems to be getting worse. People really loved XA and NS yet we've pushed everything down their throats we can. We Incentivize the sales people with ridiculous multipliers on the new products to drive them to push it down customers throats till they give in. Intelligent workspace? Is this a real product? Are people going to pay for a product just because their direct reports PTO request popped up on their desktop like a windows update notification?
Why can't we invest in something thats going to move the needle, like a true SDN platform that could pair with NS Or monitoring Or a software storage solution (that actually works) Or maybe Security!
