Re: Revenue should be the measure for ability to execute

The proof of ability to execute might indeed be a sale, but that is not how Gartner defines it for their MQ. The full report quite clearly articulates what they mean by ability to execute - and revenue is not it.

There are plenty of flash vendors out there that made a sale, but are not executing effectively in the broader market.

If you want to use revenue as a measure of performance in the market, you might like to hop on over to IDC.

Also, there are a number of vendors that have a software storage capability that is not limited to their own hardware. NetApp is not unique in that field.
