Zoom CEO Eric Yuan on the challenges of adapting an enterprise product for consumers

There’s been a lot of talk about the consumerization of IT in the workplace. But in the case of Zoom, the pandemic forced the high-flying video conferencing service to rapidly shift gears in the other direction, resulting in some painful lessons along the way.

Zoom founder and CEO Eric Yuan said despite the company’s culture of always trying to see the world through its customers’ eyes, it had to rethink many of its assumptions when suddenly a wide range of consumers began using Zoom for everything from distance learning to having virtual cocktails with friends.

However, ERP is really just a product category in a time when digital transformation is making categories undesirable. In 2000, Gartner, Inc. coined the term “ERP II” and predicted that ERP would expand to include customer relationship management (CRM) as more companies opt to use CRM modules in ERP packages.
