Also as of July 1, 2018, we began recognizing implementation revenue ratably over a period of generally up to 24 months.

In the interest of comparability during this transition year, in the reconciliation table below we are providing revenue for each quarter of fiscal 2018 on a GAAP and non-GAAP, pro-forma basis giving effect to the change in recognition of implementation revenue for fiscal 2018.
