5 Year Market Presence Study of the 10 Leading Suppliers

This WR Market Presence Study provides an assessment of the five year trajectory of top solutions within the UC&C market. It provides insight as to which vendors will have more, less, or the same influence on the competitive landscape over the upcoming five year period. A positive assessment suggests that the vendor and solution are expected to have greater influence on the competitive landscape; neutral implies no or minimal expected change; and vendors with a negative Market Presence assessment are expected to experience diminishing influence over the next five years. The analysis projects each vendor’s future influence relative to their current position within the competitive landscape.

This Market Presence Study focuses on the ten most established vendors in the Enterprise Unified Communications premises-based market.  Note that this study focuses on a vendor’s Market Presence specifically regarding its UC solution – many vendors covered in this report have a broad product line above and beyond their UC solution in question.
