Western Europe Collaborative Applications Software Forecast, 2015–2019

IDC expects that public cloud will outgrow all other cloud and on-premises deployment models due to the ease of implementation, adoption, and integration across applications. Over the next five years, public cloud will accelerate the demand for collaborative applications because it allows organizations to move to a new generation of applications with little efforts, while improving the access across devices and platforms via a web-based experience."In Europe, we are seeing collaboration software becoming a critical part of the digital agenda," said Jan van Vonno, senior research analyst, IDC European Social Business and Collaboration Solutions. "As organizational transformation is becoming business-led, we expect that the market in Europe will find itself selling increasingly to non-traditional IT buyers that have a stake in nurturing an engaged and collaborative workforce."
