we'll bring together thousands of users, decision makers and NI engineers to discuss technical challenges, gain insight into new technology trends and to leave with new solutions. At NIWeek, you will see the continued expansion of NI's 30-year investment in our software-based platform and tangible examples of customers leveraging decades of investment in hardware and software. These investments deliver value to our customers through integration of the whole software stack of drivers, test development software and test management software.

At NIWeek, we will demonstrate how we are adding more value to this platform through new capabilities and by leveraging software advancements like analytics and cloud computing to support the latest technology trends. I'm excited to celebrate the impact our customers are having on the world and to see our teams unveil the latest products that will further differentiate our platform for existing customers and to expand the number of users that we can serve in the future.

I will close by thanking our employees and reiterating the importance of focus. Our multi-year platform investments in hardware and software, coupled with a multi-year evolution of our sales channel, have positioned us well to capitalize on the complexity created from new and emerging technology. I'm excited to see us deliver these new technologies and processes to drive further adoption within our target industries and applications. Aligned execution, from product development to system delivery, will help us further differentiate our platform in these areas and deliver high value systems to market faster.

Once again, I look forward to seeing you at NIWeek and we'll now open up for your questions.
