    We knew that we had several pieces that we had to really align from data governance, governance communications, personalization. Gartner [experts] have been spot-on for us as far as coming in on a specific topic and really, you know, bringing us through the knothole, so to speak, and getting us to understand what it will take to get from point A to point B. So in moving forward, all of these discussions and all of these interactions with Gartner really help us narrow down, and be very precise in what we needed to do to move into a future state and present that to our executive team.
