EMEA Unified Communications-as-a-Service 2017–2021 Forecast
By: Michael Vorisek
This IDC study provides revenue and subscriber forecasts for the EMEA unified-communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) applications and UCaaS voice segments. It contains splits for eight countries/sub-regions: the United Kingdom, Germany, France, the Nordic countries, Southern Europe, the rest of Western Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Central and Eastern Europe. The study examines key market drivers and inhibitors. It provides guidance for vendors and services providers.
"The UCaaS market is one of the few growth engines left in the broader EMEA unified communications and collaboration market. The potential of UCaaS should not be underestimated by providers that hope to thrive in the broader, declining, market. However, UCaaS alone will not be enough. Players must develop broader strategies to defend and grow market share." — Telecom and Networking Program Manager Michael Vorisek, IDC CEMA
