Research and Markets: Global Unified Communication as-a-Service Market 2012-2016 with Alcatel-Lucent SA., Cisco Systems Inc. and Microsoft Corp. Dominating
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3hqjk9/global_unified)
has announced the addition of the "Global
Unified Communication as-a-Service Market 2012-2016" report to
The analysts forecast the Global Unified Communication as-a-service
(UCaaS) market to grow at a CAGR of 25.46 percent over the period
2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is
the increasing need for centralized management. The Global Unified
Communication as-a-service (UCaaS) market has also been witnessing the
adoption of cloud-based enterprise services. However, the requirement
for a high bandwidth could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominating this space include Avaya Inc., Alcatel-Lucent (News - Alert)
SA., Cisco Systems Inc., and Microsoft Corp.
The other vendors mentioned in the repot are 8x8 Inc., CSC, Google
Inc., Hewlett-Packard (News - Alert) Co., IBM Corp., Mitel Networks, PanTerra Networks
Inc., ShoreTel Inc., AT and T Inc., British Telecom Group plc., Deutsche
Telekom AG, Orange (News - Alert) Telecom, Sprint Nextel Corp., Telefonica SA, Telstra
Corp. Ltd., and Verizon Wireless.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the Telecom team said: 'The
cost of implementing a new infrastructure is high. Hence, organizations
are reluctant to dispose of their existing legacy systems and install
new systems. Cloud-based services are developed to help organizations
minimize their infrastructure cost. They provide them with a
better-quality service and reduce the cost incurred during maintenance,
thus increasing the adoption of UCaaS by organizations.'
According to the report, one of the major drivers is the increased need
for centralized management. UCaaS manages all the administrative tasks
in a centralized manner; administrators can perform the task once and
the data will be updated at every relevant location. The data can be
accessed and information can be communicated without time and location
constraints. This improves the reliability of the system and also saves
Further, the report states that one major challenge is the need for high
bandwidth to share huge amounts of data through the cloud. As there is a
scarcity of high bandwidth, this can hamper the quality of the service
provided. This can delay the decision-making process in an organization,
which may affect the organization's productivity and therefore adversely
affect the growth of the Global UCaaS market.
