New market study shows Total UC-Capable market to reach $20 billion by 2016
Santa Rosa, CA, July 11, 2012 – COMMfusion LLC, in association with UCStrategies, announces a new market study on the growing and changing Unified Communications & Collaboration landscape.Asone of the most comprehensive studies in this area, Unified Communications & Collaboration Market 2011-2016 includes detailed information and insights on the UCC drivers, challenges, key players, technology, trends, and market forecasts, as well as presenting vendor leadership evaluations in several areas.
The need for UCC has never been greater, as the growth of the mobile workforce has led to the need for workers to communicate regardless of their location or device, and the rise of video communication and tools such as social software have created new ways for people to interact. Trends such as the consumerization of IT, Bring Your Own Device, and virtualization are helping to propel the UCC market, with hosted services providing the next big opportunity for UCC.
Unified Communications & Collaboration Market 2011-2016 helps end-user organizations, vendors, and channel partners better understand the UCC market as it evolves. The study slices and dices the premise-based UCC market in several different ways, with worldwide market forecasts presenting both the individual components that make up a unified communications & collaboration solution, as well as the portion of each component that will be sold as part of a UCC solution.
The worldwide total or UC-capable market was $12.23 billion in 2011, up 8% from 2010, and expected to grow to $20.76 billion by 2016. The portion of this that is expected to be purchased and used for “true” UCC solutions will grow from $2.7 billion in 2011 to $8.47 billion by 2016; professional services will increase the product revenues by 27% in 2011. The revenue difference between the UC-capable and “true” UCC market shows the huge opportunity available to vendors and channel partners.
Enterprises need to understand vendors’ offerings in terms of openness, innovation, vertical expertise, etc., while evaluating their strengths and challenges. The report provides analysis of the leading UCC vendors, and identifies the vendors that COMMfusion believes are leaders in each of these areas.
