This makes me feel pretty good about being a leader at ZS. Thanks, everyone!

Acc2: I actually have very few opinions about ZS vs other companies since it’s the only consulting firm I’ve been at.

I will say that there was a time when one piece of our desired positioning in the tech space was “like Accenture, but better.” Our CEO used to use that line.

I don’t do much tech and I don’t think we say that anymore. We never bothered to say “like IBM, but better.”
