Overall, Salesforce's non-GAAP diluted earnings per share were 84 cents on revenue of $7.33 billion, up 26% year-over-year.  

Analysts expected earnings of 75 cents per share on revenue of $7.24 billion. 

Total fiscal 2022 revenue was $26.49 billion, up 25% year-over-year. 

"With our customers' success driving our financial success, we're generating disciplined, profitable growth at scale quarter after quarter," co-CEO Bret Taylor said in a statement. "Our Customer 360 platform has never been more strategic or relevant in driving the growth and resilience of our customers around the world."
