Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.

In his second "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Sanjay Poonen, COO of Customer Operations at VMWare (VMW) , the cloud software company that's fallen $4 from its recent highs.

Poonen said that VMWare remains the de facto name in data centers and has saved enough energy to power 40% of the homes in the U.S. for an entire year. VMWare has also recently partnered with's (AMZN) AWS to bring scaleable solutions to public and private clouds, and now makes it easy to scale data center capacity on the fly.

Poonen called out Nike (NKE) as a great example of what VMWare can do. He explained that Nike not only uses his company's virtualization, data center and cloud software, but also its mobile security services as well.
