BG: I think you’ve identified the key issue, which is there’s going to be a huge amount of computing going on in public cloud. If we look at different milestones in 10 to 15 years, the question then is what percent of the total application fleet will remain on premise? Will it be 80%, or 50% or even 20%?

JE: I think the public cloud is growing nicely
