Backfill of one position, Senior Application Engineer - US. The team is managing in excess of 28,000 monitored targets (not including a significant number we will be taking on from the UK this year) which gives a ratio of 2,500 targets to be monitored per associate which is well above the sustainable target of 1,200 monitored targets per associate. The net result today is we continue to have issues covering on-call, project back-logs ranging from months to over a year in some cases and missed client delivery dates. The loss of the current engineer in this roll is extra painful in that he is our sole engineering managing our old reporting system as well as the new and old reporting database (the engineer came to us from a DBA roll).
