This IDC study offers a detailed look at the results of IDC's EMEAEnterprise Communications Survey 2013 with regard to the trends in the adoption and usage of videoconferencing technology in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The sample includes respondents from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Russia; in total, 427 companies with 50 and more employees that are multisite and run a private network. The study provides information on a range of topics: current adoption levels and plans; the use of specific technologies and features, including endpoints, platforms, managed services, and inter-company bridging; the benefits of videoconferencing as perceived by users today; and a comparison of the main survey findings with those in Western Europe. It concludes by outlining key future trends and suggesting recommendations for both customers and market players in CEE.
"Videoconferencing in Central and Eastern Europe is a growth market that promises opportunities for both solution providers and their customers. The best opportunities, however, will only be available to those that take into account the specific situation of the CEE region catching up with more advanced markets while the global videoconferencing market is undergoing rapid strategic transformation." – Senior Research Analyst Michael Vorisek, IDC CEMA
