Zoho Buzz | Issue #2 | Jan 2020

From everyone at Zoho, we want to say Happy New Year! Welcome to the 2020s. 🍾

For the second issue of Zoho Buzz we want to talk about what we've done this past decade, our current initiatives, and what to expect from us during the coming decade.

There's a lot to cover, so strap in!

Zoho wasn't built in a day

In 2010, we offered 15+ apps, namely CRM and what's now known as Workplace. A decade later, we've tripled the number of apps we offer and have reached over 50 million users. Thanks for joining us on our journey!

In the 2020s and beyond, expect more business solutions from us with an ecosystem that is increasingly integrated.

Sustainability on our mind

We recently announced that we've set up a 5-megawatt on-grid solar energy farm to offset the costs of running our offices and data centers. Our chief evangelist, Raju Vegesna, had this to say about it:

"We have been thinking for a while about leveraging solar to get into a sustainable mode of operations. Now we are able to meet the energy needs of our Chennai data center and a good chunk of our main campus in Chennai too."

Sustainability cannot be a one-off initiative. You'll see more announcements such as this in the future.

We're in it for the long haul

We've been in business for 23 years and we've always approached business with a commitment to data privacy and a focus for delivering value. Here are some things we don't plan on changing:

We don't advertise for third parties or scrape your data.

We own all of our own data centers and maintain international data security compliance.

We offer no-commitment licenses and free versions for our products.

We place our corprate culture above our corporate valuation.
