Take Action to Reduce Rising UCC Costs 2017: Trends in IP telephony and UC that are driving cost changes and the need for monitoring and management tools - Research and Markets

Research and Markets has announced the addition of Nemertes Research's new report "Take Action to Reduce Rising UCC Costs" to their offering.

Unified Communications (News - Alert) and Collaboration (UCC) continues to grow in complexity, which is one reason operational costs are rising, according to our annual UCC Total Cost of Operations study of nearly 300 organizations. The research also shows that those who use offerings from vendors specializing in management and monitoring tools see a 59% reduction in their operational costs and a 34% increase in user adoption.

The more enterprises embrace the benefits of Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) , the more complex it is for IT professionals to deliver a well-orchestrated solution. Employees and customers demand innovative features and capabilities, which typically com from new vendors requiring often-complex integration and management. As adoption of IP telephony and UC increase, the architectures also become more complex because large enterprises run hybrid cloud/on-premises environments. At the same time, endpoints and applications also are becoming more sophisticated.

It is not surprising, then, that IP telephony and UC operational costs are rising, as it takes more people (and more expensive people), more partner services, and higher maintenance costs to keep the services operating properly. What is somewhat surprising is the fact that 56.4% of organizations still do not leverage the benefits of monitoring and management tools provided by companies that specialize in such technology. These providers cover various areas of management - including operations, performance, and event management.
