2015 North American Business Communications Survey
Evolve IP’s 2015 survey examined current trends around business communications and collaboration (BC & C) tools with the following areas of concentration:
- Features & Adoption
- Cloud – vs. Premise-based solutions
- Mobility – Work from Home and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Enablement
The web-based survey was focused on executives and IT professionals with 1,024 companies in North America participating.
Evolve IP’s 2015 North American Business Communications Survey revealed that mobility enablement, in conjunction with cloud-based solutions, is presently the strongest driver for the adoption of business communications and collaboration tools.
When integrated business communications features (aka unified communications) first started pushing into the market, providers promised dramatic in-office productivity enhancements for end-users. While that is still a legitimate and compelling benefit, productivity enhancements can be implemented via a multitude of strategies and services. Meanwhile, there is an immediate and growing need for organizations to enable their mobile workforce and remote employees, and technology is the only way to achieve mobility enablement.
