In order to grow the top-line, we are investing in sales, pre-sales, marketing, and delivery consultant skills. Based on the initial investments that we already made, we are seeing very positive results at a number of large clients and attracting new clients as well. Specifically, business has increased in Life Sciences, EDS, our HP partnership, and our Professional Services business.
