You should see what they are grabbing, billions of dollars every month.

We mentioned that oracle and sap are two of your largest competitors.

We are building out this market opportunity that has been left nascent for a decade and a half.

Any organization regardless of size, you ask folks, how do you get what is needed to do your job?

We will get a dozen different answers.
