Welcome to the Q2 2012 Teradata Earnings Call. My name is Kim, and I will be the operator for today's call. [Operator Instructions] Later, we will conduct a question-and-answer session. Please note that this conference is being recorded.
I will now turn the call over to Mr. Gregg Swearingen. Mr. Swearingen, you may begin.
Good morning, and thanks for joining us for our 2012 second quarter earnings call. Mike Koehler, Teradata's CEO, will begin today by summarizing Teradata's Q2 results. Steve Scheppmann, Teradata's CFO, will then provide more details regarding our financial performance as well as our increased guidance for 2012. Darryl McDonald, Teradata's EVP of Applications, Business Development and CMO, is also in the room.
Our discussion today includes forecast and other information that are considered forward-looking statements. While these statements reflect our current outlook, they are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to vary materially. These risk factors are described in Teradata's 10-K and other filings with the SEC.
