As 2014 draws to a close, I would like to take a moment to thank you for your continued business and for giving Wind River® the opportunity to serve as your trusted technology partner and advisor.

This was a pivotal year for Wind River as we significantly expanded our product portfolio to address an evolving technology landscape marked by transformative forces such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). In fact, just this month we introduced a game-changing cloud-based IoT platform, and also received the Carrier Network Virtualization Award for NFV Innovation of the Year, so it's extremely exciting to head into 2015 with so much momentum.

We continue to innovate and enhance our technologies and services to best address your business needs; and our proven 30-year history and technology DNA have us well positioned to help you make the most of this emerging era of "software-defined everything."

If there is anything I or the Wind River team can do for you, please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you again for being a part of our success in 2014. We look forward to helping you grow your business in the new year and beyond.

Wishing you a happy and healthy holiday season,

Barry Mainz
