Research and Markets: Global Enterprise Unified Communication Infrastructure Market 2011-2015

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/flrm92/global_enterprise) has announced the addition of the "Global Enterprise Unified Communication Infrastructure Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Enterprise Unified Communication Infrastructure market to grow at a CAGR of 3.11 percent over the period 2011-2015. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing globalization of enterprises. The Global Enterprise Unified Communication Infrastructure market has also been witnessing the increasing demand for enterprise mobility. However, the high initial cost could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Cisco Systems Inc., Avaya Inc., Microsoft Inc., and Alcatel-Lucent SA.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are Siemens AG, IBM Corp., NEC Corp., Mitel Networks, Interactive Intelligence Inc., and SAP AG.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Telecom team said: ''The increasing adoption of smartphones is driving the demand for Unified Communication (UC) solutions as these solutions support a mobile workforce. Many UC providers and vendors have integrated mobile support and included features that enhance the use of smartphones in UC. For instance, features such as voicemail-to-text, fixed mobile convergence, and mobile presence has been introduced to enhance the communication experience of end-users.''

According to the report, as a result of the increasing scope in business and the increasing advantages of globalization, enterprises are expanding their businesses globally. This increases the demand for communication among organizations located worldwide. Communication can be facilitated by messages, e-mails, calls, conferences, face-to-face meetings, and online chats. UC not only saves travelling time, but also allows end-users to reduce communication costs significantly. It also provides good connectivity and reliability for data transmission, enabling the real-time exchange of data and information through UC.

Further, the report reveals that the high initial investment for the installation of the communication system components will pose a serious challenge for the growth of the market.
