This IDC Market Analysis Perspective views the different angles and perspectives of the Nordic enterprise communications market. The enterprise market for communications is relatively stable; growth is slowly returning from a few years of decline. The connectivity market for fixed and mobile voice and data is showing remarkable strength and stability, despite competition from unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) and over-the-top players. UC&C is still growing, but at a much slower pace than earlier. It will grow in the low single digits in the next few years, showing signs of becoming a stable, mature market.
In the Nordics, digital transformation is a strong driver for change. Together with the changing landscape for the workplace, it forms the challenges for enterprise communications in the coming five years. Cloud connectivity, security, Internet of Things (IoT), changing communication patterns, and ever-increasing consumption of data in a market with limited revenue growth form the challenge for communication providers.
