Practically, this means business as usual. EMC has had a very close relationship with the good folks at WysDM for quite a while now. There has been a lot of collaboration around requirements and development, and we have both prospered as a result--the product is excellent, and getting better. It is also one of a very few good choices in this space: essentially the reporting features of most backup applications are awful. (And, until we started adding WysDM IP into Networker, that was equally true for us in my opinion!) So WysDM offers a very practical alternative to native tools (or lack of them), is compatible with every major backup application, and it has been widely accepted as a result.
So welcome aboard Alan, we are glad you have joined us!
