Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by, and welcome to Verint Systems Inc. Second Quarter 2021 Earnings Conference Call.
It is now my pleasure to introduce Senior VP, Corporate Development, Alan Roden.
Thank you, operator. Good afternoon and thank you for joining our conference call today. I'm here with Dan Bodner, Verint's CEO; and Doug Robinson, Verint's CFO.

I'd also like to draw your attention to the fact that certain matters discussed on this call may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other provisions of the Federal Securities Laws. These forward-looking statements are based on management's current expectations and are not guarantees of future performance.
Actual results could differ materially from those expressed in or implied by these forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this call and except as required by law, Verint assumes no obligation to update or revise them. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.

The financial measures discussed today include non-GAAP measures as we believe investors focus on those measures in comparing results between periods and among our peer companies. Please see today's WebEx slides, our earnings releases in the Investor Relations section of our website at verint.com for a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP measures.
Non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to GAAP financial information, but included because management believes it provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operating results when assessing our business and is useful to investors for informational and comparative purposes. The non-GAAP financial measures the Company uses have limitations and may differ from those used by other companies.
Now, I'd like to turn the call over to Dan. Dan?
Thank you, Alan. I'm pleased to report a strong second quarter with sequential revenue growth coming in better than expected. Cash from operations was also strong in Q2, and for the first six months, increased nearly 40% year-over-year. Looking ahead, our view of the year has improved and we believe the Q2 cloud momentum will continue in the second half of the year with sequential non-GAAP revenue growth in both Q3 and Q4. Also, I'm pleased to report that we expect to make an initial confidential submission to the SEC later this month and are on track
