EMEA Enterprise Communications Survey, 2015: Attitudes Toward Network Life-Cycle Services and Service Provider Selection Criteria

This IDC study presents the key findings of IDC's annual EMEA Enterprise Communications Survey. It focuses on priorities and strategic intentions around network life-cycle services, covering trends around 3rd Platform technologies and services, network outsourcing services, and services provider preferences for fixed and mobile services, voice and data services, as well as network services and IT/cloud services. Results are provided for 17 countries across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) by vertical and company size.

"We see growing adoption of network life-cycle services (NLS) in the next three years, fueled by cloud, Big Data, mobility, and social business. This positions the network and network-based services at the center of companies' priorities," said Sylvia Wünsche, research analyst, IDC European Telecoms and Networking.
