This IDC study contains IDC's worldwide mobile unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) market forecast for 2013–2017. The segments aggregated for this study represent IDC's estimates on customer usage of UC and collaboration technologies instead of a total available market estimate for all technologies that are mobile UC&C capable.
"UC&C for the enterprise is quickly becoming a critical tool for achieving optimal employee performance in today's day-to-day business operations," said Stacy Crook, research director for Mobile Enterprise Software at IDC. "And mobility is a core part of the UC&C story, offering the ability to communicate and collaborate internally and externally in real time."
