English term or phrase: we weren’t invited to the party
At the Goldman Sachs conference, VMware CFO Mark Peek was more diplomatic. Peek said that Citrix and VMware often occupy different spaces in the industry.
Peek was asked about comments from Citrix CFO David Henshall, who speaking at the Goldman conference noted that the company isn’t invited to go toe-to-toe VMware on the virtualization front. When Citrix and VMware both battle for the same customer, Henshall was confident about his company’s chances.
Peek said he could say the same thing about Citrix, which was portrayed as being more about thin clients and desktop virtualization. VMware is in desktop virtualization, but Citrix has a large installed base.
“Citrix has a significant installed base and I think ***there are a lot of deals where we probably don’t know that we weren’t invited to the party because — and it’s also a different buyer***,” said Peek.

Chinese translation:我们没有受邀竞标
Explanation:
I think there are a lot of deals where we probably don’t know that we weren’t invited to the party because — and it’s also a different buyer.

我认为有许多业务交易我们没有受邀竞标,我们对此可能都毫不知情,因为 —— Citrix 也有做买方的情况。
