I am pleased with our cloud acceleration, ending the year with approximately 40% ARR growth, laying a strong foundation for future growth. We expect non-GAAP cloud revenue to increase by more than 40% this year to nearly $250 million, and to increase at a 30% to 40% CAGR over the next three years. We are also pleased with our GAAP cash from operations which came in strong at $215 million, a 22% increase year-over-year. We believe our strong results and momentum reflect the strategic decisions we have made over the last two years and the growing adoption of Actionable Intelligence solutions by the market. We have accelerated our pace of innovation and we are well positioned with a differentiated portfolio for sustained growth and market leadership."
