Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) Market Research Reports

Businesses increasingly acknowledge the need to leverage advanced technologies to improve business agility and gain operational efficiencies. Long gone are the days when businesses relied solely on telephony and email to conduct their daily tasks. Today, businesses are deploying a broad array of communications and collaboration applications including telephony, email, voicemail and unified messaging, instant messaging (IM) and presence, audio, web and video conferencing, file sharing and white-boarding, mobility, social networking and more.  New generations of business users are choosing more social and visual modes of collaboration accessible on the devices and interfaces of their choice, anywhere, anytime.

As businesses look to consolidate and more effectively manage their communications infrastructure, they are integrating multiple technologies and tools into unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) solutions powered by session management, virtualization, cloud architectures and software-defined networks. To ensure higher ROI and future-proof their technology investments, businesses are investing in best-of-breed, standards-based solutions that can be tightly integrated for greater end-user productivity and more efficient IT management.

The combination of dramatic demographic changes and accelerated technology evolution is creating demand for a new approach to IT and business communications. We are seeing a powerful shift in IT towards new cloud delivery models that enable more flexible and cost-effective technology management and consumption. Holistic digital transformation initiatives are driving business IT and communications towards a Social, Mobile, Collaborative Cloud future.
