A1: As China rebounds, the country is focusing on enhancing and upgrading our national IT infrastructure to provide a reliable modern platform to help rebuild today and repel the threats of tomorrow.

Nutanix always welcomes policies that help innovation and investment flourish. The introduction of the Foreign Investment Law in January is a good example – as it helps simplify the business environment and reinforces China's commitment to further opening up its markets and boosting inbound foreign investment.

As alliances and collaboration become key, we look forward to the upcoming sessions, offering greater scope for international cooperation as well as more detail on the new national infrastructure implementation plan.

A2: Business as usual for Nutanix – as a modern, flat and cloud-based software company Nutanix was structured to navigate and operate (globally) during the pandemic and use our tech to help focus our efforts on ensuring our customers and partners were safe, secure, productive and efficient.

We remain enthusiastic and committed to China and will continue to invest and expand our partnership alliances and push forward with our localisation initiatives to help businesses in China have the access to the tools they need to re-emerge stronger, more productive and more resilient than before.

A3: Nutanix has long advocated accelerated digital transformation and the embracing of a multi-cloud environment. So we are happy to see the government promoting the construction of "new infrastructure" based on that philosophy.

The challenge ahead now is to ensure we develop a new modern infrastructure that ensures business efficiency and productivity as well as survivability, and that will require much greater cloud interconnectedness and interoperability – something Nutanix specialises in.

We are now moving rapidly to embrace the cloud, but let's make sure we optimize the cloud environment for China and its businesses. The cloud is a complex and siloed environment. We are ready, willing and able to help simplify it through our HCI and hybrid cloud solutions.

A4: What customers want and value, as well as what and how we deliver it has fundamentally changed – and Nutanix and our partners are ready to help match and adapt to this new business reality.

Acceptance of remote and flexible working: This has overnight become an acceptable new norm and enterprises are now being forced to fast-track their digital transformation efforts, so employees can continue working without compromising on security, safety and connectivity.

Intelligent automaton will become increasingly important as businesses seek to automate their processes and learning in the battle to do much more with less.

A5: Nutanix will always put the safety and security of its staff first. As such we continue to monitor the situation very closely and adapt accordingly during work resumption.

Our structure and work practices have been developed to enhance the services we offer, not reduce them. As we continue to invest in China and expand our alliances and offerings, we will invest in the staff and resources to deliver that.

We have always valued a healthy work-life balance, and place accountability and responsibility in the hands of our staff. In return they provide much greater drive, determination and productivity.

We also understand their professional and personal needs, so in China, we have provided a series of online trainings to our staff to enhance their industry knowledge and make them well-prepared to seize business opportunities as the economy rebounds from the epidemic.
