any margin other Or unpack Okay. to a as nicely little any just here and drivers the prior That's prior just Was looks over pretty major call in the wanted And color. the then whether improvement? other that the out follow-up, impact I usage and quarter helpful it like gross year. improved bit. segment? a to driving

Yaron Garmazi

improving we The in especially the post-COVID. are we system, before, No. driver, as going told to No. heavily focus everybody main

related the way the of is the where it's in by So you to not number see the the which we are we much but taking. And of the marketing be, and part, but way, want education we to OEM, I tech that the that, some don't made actions improving think pre-COVID. we so mileage still enterprise can numbers, are some

look improved there XX% fact a for compared revenue, including there And by we XX% in from for room the the from room it's The will to the that of Telecom. to the We always improved year, of improvement last we is to E&T grow. other quarter see Enterprise of -- you gross the believe room XX% and to Media say when XX%. margin there non-recurring that from XX%. reduction of And the So that from was big to actions, change a size despite of still the lot some taking XX%. is we improvement. We

the the not what of most last next detailed and had continued next XXs discussed did improve when see of going -- in had into to high especially after again, to we and are to the committing company we we right But for now a guidance XXs. will XX%. short-term, XXs, it before, of And we provide continue when more XX% quarter. obviously, Because related at for to continue we the improved are the above we will rest year year. we are was in it XX% that now, the going to So be year. get actions going low beginning definitely we to And the low will improve. It's not the to

Ron Yekutiel

with Enterprise lower scale obviously, the economy the general, coming and I'll both the a that Telecom that an that's which we've we're is just And improved introduces And for pricing services, non-recurring. good and one of building add percentage and great. usage-based It's in of Media pricing reduction new in targeting we're our the Education other is growing that and Tech. a and IS professional reduction of the of the products so continued been in things is seeing together scale. and post-pandemic, growth shift one a and product also of

expecting goals. definitely towards we're So long-term to to our go continue

in [indiscernible], as had we said, short-term. With some in see Yaron expect that do the jumps the margin gross fluctuations to and

So back could expect improving down in go up I see to and QX gross hard margin. up. it would not We're gross very to It margins. continues before necessarily working again better optimistic come towards
