Japan Unified Communications and Collaboration 2015 Top 10 Predictions

This IDC study identifies ten factors that could affect the Japan Unified Communication & Collaboration (UC&C) market in 2015, and gives an outlook on the said market. During the first half of 2014, voice infrastructure replacement demand continued to grow among large companies, and the market achieved solid growth. IDC predicts that in 2015 the Japan US&C market will demonstrate application of the 3rd Platform to actual business systems.

"In 2015, it will be important for Japan UC&C market vendors, systems integrators, and telcos to leverage the fact that the 3rd Platform will begin to be applied to actual business systems as an opportunity to examine their competitors, and add marketing-lead-based sales policies to traditional sales-lead-based selling," says Takashi Manabe, software and security Group Manager, IDC Japan.
