"We focused on execution to leverage new routes to market, acquire new customers, and drive subscription, maintenance and technical services growth.

Templeton also noted:

"Mobility and cloud services represent an accelerating transformation in the workplace, and as we look into 2013, we are uniquely positioned to help our customers change the way they work, the devices and apps they use, and the way services are delivered."
