So we all know change is not easy, especially when it involves moving away from what you have be doing successfully for many years. Last week I had the opportunity to attend **F5 Networks - North American Partner Leadership Summit** along with many of F5's top North American Partners. The message from the senior management team was crystal clear, F5 is **changing its stance** in the market and is very serious about rapidly evolving to meet these new market and customer demands.
