This IDC study forecasts the worldwide revenue for the content collaboration market for the 2015–2019 period.
"We see a broad continuum of customer needs when it comes to effective collaboration around content. The need to exchange information with collaborators inside and outside the organization — and activate it in the context of critical business processes — is driving the convergence of several markets," said Vanessa Thompson and Melissa Webster, vice presidents at IDC. "The cloud is the big disruptor here. It will be interesting to watch the competitive maneuvering as vendors expand their offerings to compete across the broader continuum, and these markets collide."
