Worldwide Collaborative Applications Market Shares, 2017: The Collaboration Imperative Arrives

This IDC study examines the vendor revenue performance in the overall collaborative applications market for 2017. "The collaboration imperative is a fundamental change in how we work. 'We > me.' Connected employees, partners, and increasingly, customers are doing more than streamlining workflow: They are redesigning how work is done," according to Wayne Kurtzman, research director for IDC's Social, Communities and Collaboration practice. "They are crossing silos, making global talent scale, and interacting with conversations, content, and data in new ways — often helped by artificial intelligence. The results are often staggering with fewer meetings, fewer emails, greater employee engagement, and faster execution while seamlessly creating new best practices."
