On-line Presentation


This IDC Survey analyzes key technology and services investment trends in Europe and identifies business opportunities for technology solution providers in the next 12 months. The survey is based on IDC's annual European Enterprise Communications Survey, 2021.

IDC's European Enterprise Communications Survey is an annual survey and a must-have for technology providers. It identifies organizations' priorities around enterprise communications services including telecommunications, collaboration, cloud, network, and life-cycle services. In addition, it provides an overview of companies' network investment strategies, challenges, and service provider preferences.

Results are available for 12 European countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the U.K., Czech Republic, Poland, and Russia), six verticals (finance, manufacturing, the public sector, retail/wholesale, business services, and transport), and six business size segments (50–99 employees; 100-249 employees; 250–499 employees; 500-999 employees; 1,000-4,999 employees; and 5,000 or more employees) on request.

"The increasing investment focus on SDN, edge, and cloud networking reflects not only the shift toward a cost-optimization strategy, but it also challenges the roots of modern strategic planning, delivering cost leadership and differentiation through an agile, network-enabled digital workplace," said Marcelo Lecocq, Research Director, European Enterprise Networks and Life-Cycle Services.
