Excerpts from the study:

Smart phones are the most common UCC endpoints in use today; web conferencing is the most common UCC tool.  In three years, tablets could very well be the leading technology to be deployed in the enterprise.

Instant messaging (IM) is by far the UCC technology given to the largest number of employees, followed by conferencing, and consumer social media. Smart phones and headsets are most likely to be deployed based on job roles. 

Smart phones, instant messaging, headsets, and web and audio conferencing are deemed most important among UCC tools. Very few companies rate any UCC technology as “not important.”
