Surprised nothing about layoffs today. It sounds like the a number of people under WW bookings were laid off today.

wait....they laid off people in the teams that BOOK THE ORDERS AND MAKE SURE VMWARE'S CUSTOMERS PAY VMWARE?

Any chance that 'saved' budget will actually be applied to automating those roles? Or is this more of a 'hope desperately that the last few people hang on just a little longer' type of situation.

The cuts are in total 15 people.
They are all Directors and Senior Managers/Managers level across Order Management + SaaS Billing Operations.
Huge cull will only ki-l the remaining Teams.
Great future to the people who are leaving.

I suspect we'll see more info as the 'my last day will be' emails start rolling. I've only seen one so far from Revenue...

At the same time, Dell is laying off long time channel managers and down leveling sales and apparently focusing on direct sales -in the news again this week.

  1. Dell mentioned in an interview this week the spin off will happen in November.

Coincidence?
