However, flat or declining IT budgets threaten this approach, which depends on continued IT spending. Areas of increasing importance include cybersecurity spending to protect the organization and its ecosystem and the use of metrics to gauge actual business results. </P><P>"Technology leaders must stay focused on achieving business outcomes that support those business requirements and strive to sustain IT and business alignment," notes Joe Pucciarelli, group vice president and executive advisor with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "Achieving these priorities will separate those CIOs that do well from those that do exceptionally well."</P> IDC Perspective Mon, 10 May 2021 04:00:00 GMT Joseph C.

The CPaaS industry emerged from a turbulent 2020 in excellent shape, benefitting from an uptake in cloud communications driven by the need for critical digital communications and collaboration. The industry has experienced tremendous consolidation driven by relentless M&A, but it has witnessed a steady growth of new market entrants, many existing software companies that are increasingly pivoting to the provision of API platforms.</P><P>According to Courtney Munroe, Research VP Telecommunications, IDC, "Despite the hype and excitement generated by the rapidly growing CPaaS segment, new entrants standing up and hosting a few SMS and voice APIs do not guarantee automatic success. CPaaS platforms require deep internetworking with carriers and distributed IP and cloud assets to deliver quality voice calls and messages."</P> IDC MarketScape Mon, 03 May 2021 04:00:00 GMT Courtney Munroe Ooma: Unified Communications for All Business Segments <P>This IDC Vendor Profile examines Ooma, a publicly listed company (NYSE: OOMA) that was founded in 2003.

Vendors added functionality and offerings as well as made strategic acquisitions in the space, joining dozens of existing pure-play EX vendors in a crowded market. As organizations look to define the requirements for new work models and the safe return to onsite work, IDC sees some convergence in the market with increased focus on enterprise service management (ESM) technologies. The overall goal is enabling evolving hybrid work models with built-in technology parity for access to every worker from any location.</P><P>"IDC sees the intersection of enterprise service management and employee experience as one example of how IT and human engagement are facilitating much more fluid ways of working," says Amy Loomis, research director, Future of Work. "The future of work will truly rely not only on a hybrid model of work for technology but a hybrid mindset for organizations that must look across functional boundaries to support the evolving employee experience."</P> Market Perspective Sun, 02 May 2021 04:00:00 GMT Amy Loomis, Ph.D., Laura Becker, Juliana Beauvais Cisco's New Contact Center Portfolio Caters to Market Needs <P>This IDC Market Note discusses Cisco's rebranded contact center solutions, which was first announced at WebexOne in December 2020. </P><P>"Cisco has amplified its contact center portfolio through well-targeted enhancements to address emerging needs in the market.
