The Zoom platform today has more than a thousand apps which users can integrate with its offerings. While competitors like Microsoft with Teams and Google with its Meet offerings try to elbow Zoom specially in the enterprise space, Velchamy sounds upbeat on its ability to not just take on but succeed against the behemoths.
