    tomorrow, 16th, here are some notables


    "... As of January 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013, we served 51, 95 and 134 life sciences customers, respectively. As of August 31, 2013, we served approximately 170 total life sciences customers ...


    ... Revenues from professional services tend to be concentrated at the beginning of a customer deployment. Given this model and continued new customer adoption and existing customer expansion, professional services revenues have represented a material percent of our total revenues. For example, professional services and other revenues were 43% and 33% of total revenues in our fiscal year ended January 31, 2013 and the six months ended July 31, 2013, respectively. Over time, the proportion of subscription services revenues for a particular customer has tended to increase relative to professional services revenues ...


    ... For our fiscal years ended January 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013, our subscription services revenue retention rate was 192%, 159% and 187%, respectively ... "


    If anyone looks at their SEC filling, we should expect their tremendous growth declines, probably their domestic market (US), but there could be more international growth, China just might be one of the biggest among many. Most of their growth in the past quarter archived by increment in their subscription revenue, not so much in their professional service since last year, but I suppose this could increase in the future.
