Unified Communications and the Virtual Office, Part 2Yesterday we looked at how Unified Communications—a systems-based approach to unifying telephony, instant messaging, presence, and Web conferencing—and the growth is astonishing—and the virtual office go hand in hand. Today we’re going to look at more forecasts and solutions.
Forrester forecasts that the market for Unified Communications within enterprises in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific will reach $14.5 billion in 2015. IDC had previously predicted that unified communications market in EMEA alone will be worth just over $8 billion in 2010 and will grow to $16.6 billion by 2014. Either way, that’s heavy validation for the concept of Unified Communications.
"It is important for all businesses to prepare and architect their communications environments in a more unified and services-oriented manner,” says Jonathan Edwards, research analyst, Unified Communications at IDC. “And one of the most significant factors impeding UC adoption today is the lack of interoperability assurance for customers between their existing and pending communications and networking investments and purchases.”
