In terms of the market, Calderoni says he has been buoyed by the recent float of MuleSoft and the impending Okta IPO. "We are starting to see some success [in the market] which a year ago wasn't the case, so that is one of the factors we look at in terms of timing.
"So is the market able? Is there willingness and appetite to invest in software companies that have the kind of trajectory that we have? That is something we continue to look at."
Calderoni is also conscious of chasing growth too aggressively though, saying: "We also have to realise where we are, we are a startup company working with customers that have a significant amount of demands on us, so I want us to stay focused. We can spread ourselves too thin too fast and then not necessarily accomplish the goals our customers need and we need long-term."
