Greene isn't in a group dedicated specifically to storage--like, for example, his Paramount colleagues who work in the SAP group. Overall, the number of firms in our survey with dedicated storage teams grew vs. last year, and larger firms with higher revenues were more likely to have dedicated storage teams.
Firms with more than $10 billion in revenue were those most likely to have dedicated storage groups. In 2006, 61% of super-sized firms in that sphere had dedicated storage teams; in 2007, 71% have them. In contrast, only 23% of 2007 respondent firms with less than $50 million in revenue have a dedicated storage group (see "Percent of companies with dedicated storage groups by company revenue," below).
