Alan Masarek, CEO 

I think for partners and everybody else, [COVID-19] will accelerate the move to cloud. Prem-to-cloud has always had a benefit of cost—if you have 5,000 employees, as an example, spread across 500 retail stores, I would say cloud is essential from a cost perspective. But what you're finding today is whether those 5,000 people are spread across 500 stores or sitting at home, now cloud is essential for business continuity.

The one thing I know for sure, as a public company CEO, is the audit committees of public companies are going to be incredibly focused on their management team, asking, 'What are you doing about business continuity?' Because God forbid something like this happens again, whether it's a pandemic or a natural disaster, you better get to a solution that no longer tethers your team to a particular device or particular office.
