Hello, everyone, and thank you for joining us today for Oracle's Executive Access for Investors, an educational webcast series hosted by Oracle. Today is Thursday, April 12, 2012. Joining us today is Andy Mendelson, SVP, Oracle Database Server Technologies; and Equity Research Analyst, Kash Rangan, from Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Today, Andy will discuss Big Data, why this is good for Oracle and Oracle's key products and technologies, including the Oracle Big Data Appliance. Please note that Andy will not be discussing any information today that is not already publicly available. Also, please note that we'll be conducting a separate web event on another hot topic: Analytics, and Oracle's Exalytics In-Memory Machine. That will be later this month. At the conclusion of Andy's presentation, we'll turn the webcast over to Kash, who will kick off the Q&A. You may submit questions at any time during the presentation by clicking on the Ask a Question tab above the webcast slides. Please keep in mind, we will not comment on business in the current quarter.
