About this report
This research service aims to measure the current use and future behavior towards information technology (IT) within Europe, covering the manufacturing, education, financial, government, healthcare, and retail sectors. While companies consider their IT investments, improving productivity ranks by a clear margin, followed by reducing costs, improving customer experience, and improving collaboration. Laptops are the most-used technology, but smart phones are expected to grow by 30% over the next two years. IT decision makers continue to seek ways to integrate their IT infrastructure; the main barrier to entry for UCC tools is cost, although many companies still do not see the value in new technologies.
