Welcome bill and thanks for joining us. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at Abbey sure so I currently work for have you have been there for about a year and a half now. I'm the Director Director of Product Marketing I head up our innovative products group focusing on some of the growth markets that we see and kind of we're Abbey's technology can be we're customers can benefit benefit within different markets and different industries prior to come into abby and I've been in the offer industry and a price offer industry about twenty three years now working for both small Paul Startup companies and large enterprise companies like EMC as well as Colfax previous company. I worked for so my background has been both in product management product marketing focus on enterprise software everything from processing and understanding content to business process automation platforms. I have managed as well to his sounds great and in one of the things is that when we spent a lot of our time talking to enterprises and organizations both in the private sector as well as the public sector you might think of information stuff that's stored in databases and applications applications but as we all know like ninety plus percent of the information that is flowing through the enterprise and the organization is unstructured. It's information that's an documents and emails and texts and voicemails videos and images and even log files you just kind of like lots of the stuff that's just kind of dominating the enterprise between all of that and it makes over ninety percent of the information so clearly that's part of the reason why people are looking at technology is like ai machine learning extract more value from this and try to learn and find the patterns earns you.
