So we've done this historically with S+ and R, and many have appreciated the value of that approach. And what we're really excited to unveil here today is that in 4.5, we've extended our ecosystem now with a new integration for SAS and for MATLAB. So SAS and MATLAB are now integrated with Spotfire, just like R and S+. So in this case, an application author in Spotfire who is already licensed to use SAS and MATLAB separately, so those are separate licenses with Spotfire, that Spotfire application author will continue to develop scripts in those other proprietary systems but they can now embed those proprietary scripts into a Spotfire app, which can then be broadly distributed to a set of business users. So just like we had with our S+ and R integrations, Spotfire version 4.5 is going to now call out also to SAS and to MATLAB, and here we're using our statistical services on server, which is going to manage the activity of the SAS and MATLAB engines. And it will bring back the result sets from those external systems.So from a statistician's point of view, I think this is very exciting and very powerful stuff. You can now leverage your existing SAS and MATLAB investments and make them more broadly available by embedding those scripts into Spotfire. So we actually even in this release provide some sample data functions. These are basically simple tutorials to show how to call SAS or MATLAB from Spotfire.
