EMEA Videoconferencing and Telepresence Equipment Market Shares, 2016
This IDC study provides market shares for the EMEA videoconferencing and telepresence equipment market in 2016."Given the trend of an increasingly distributed workforce in a globally interdependent economy, the business case for video collaboration has never been clearer," said Melissa Fremeijer, senior research analyst, IDC EMEA Telecommunications and Networking. "As cultural and technology barriers have diminished, video has become culturally integrated into the fabric of many business processes and communications. However, the ongoing transition of this initially hardware-based video market to one impacted by virtualization and cloud-based video deployments will continue to stifle the video equipment market going forward. The key to vendor success lies in the ability to combine the simplicity, reliability, and sophistication (enhanced features, analytics, UC&C play) of the solution and wrap around those services that will enable businesses to deploy video in a most efficient and effective way to add organizational value. A modular mindset will enhance integration with other solutions and drive interoperability. As the market is heading to a platform economy, provisioning a video platform (as a service) will be key to keep ahead of the game."
