I did not have the resources in-house, or the talent, for the help I needed, and I needed it in a lot of different areas. ... I spent a lot of time with Gartner and the experts. ... [It] was really a team, helping me and my leadership team succeed and go to market quickly ... all in all, it was a team effort.
