“Looking forward, we are addressing a large opportunity as we expect customers will continue to transform how they work and engage with their customers," says Zoom founder and CEO, Eric S. Yuan.

"It is apparent that businesses want a full communications platform that is integrated, secure, and easy to use. We are proud to lead the charge of the digital transformation for communications," he says.

"To sustain and enhance our leadership position, in fiscal year 2023 we plan to build out our platform to further enrich the customer experience with new cloud-based technologies and expand our go-to-market motions, which we believe will enable us to drive future growth.”
