Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.
In an "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Pat Gelsinger, CEO, and Sanjay Poonen, COO of Customer Operations at VMware (VMW) , the virtualization software pioneer with shares that are up 15% so far in 2017 after the company announced a $1.2 billion stock buyback.
Gelsinger said that VMware was one of the first companies to turn one physical CPU into 10 virtual CPUs and today, 80% of all workloads are managed virtually since software is so much more efficient and flexible. Virtual machines can be provisioned in seconds, he said, workloads can be quickly moved to where resources are available.
Poonen talked about VMware's partnership with Amazon.com (AMZN) , announced in October, saying that it's extremely powerful when the leader in the public cloud teams up with the leader in private cloud, creating a seamless experience for customers.
Gelsinger added that technology is breaking out of tech and is now touching every aspect of business, and for customers like Marriott (MAR) , that makes all the difference.
