Reg: Hi. This is Reg Harbeck, I’m here today with Allan Zander, CEO of DataKinetics, and we're going to talk about a cool player in the mainframe ecosystem just to sort of expand our understanding and appreciation of everything that is mainframe and how it is sort of a going concern and all that is happening on it. Allan, welcome. Maybe if you could start us out by just telling us a bit about your organization, who you are, and how you guys play in the mainframe space.
Allan: Absolutely right. You know a lot of the time that sometimes people forget about that is really big computing challenges is how you process different business rules as transactions in particular carry on and transactions is really where we tend to focus our space and what we do. As you add more and more intelligence to a transaction or more different ways that you can actually compute a rule that will ultimately complete a transaction. Naturally, the complexity of that will rise and health care just happens to be a great example of that. You know from how someone used to submit an expense that would ultimately be reimbursed in a health care facility 15 years ago is very different from ultimately what happens today. There are so many more rules. There are so many more way that you can look at it. There are so many different data points that are touched along the way so yeah, as a matter of fact healthcare is one of our strongest verticals. We play in there really well. Because of that, we made some really good connections and I'm pretty proud to say two years ago, we actually launched a start up in the retail sector based on all the industry connections that we had and what we saw going. That start up is getting a little bit off the ground. We are actually incubating our second start up here at DataKinetics and it is going to have something to do with the healthcare space. We're pretty excited about that.
