I’m ordering what this means for CRWD’s relationship with OKTA, they’re being in an alliance with Sharepoint and …? Frienimies at best apparently.
I’ve been whatchimg OKTA holding up their numbers; but, not as well as some. Many here have been decreasing their allocation. I’ve completely sold out of OKTA and added to CRWD and a little to WORK, having already sold much of OKTA to buy a lot of Slack already (having pounded the table here for WORK already I’ll leave it at that.
Anyone else thinking of further decreases in allocation of OKTA on this news?
