You look at the historicals of our strong positions in telcos and retail banking and retail, lots of work done with the marketing organizations and we see this as just a tremendous opportunity to even cut beyond having a single version of the truth and eliminating silos of information that exist in many corporations and getting an integration and eliminating silos of marketing processes and systems and automation.
