UC&C Market Dynamics: What the Data Tells Us

9:40 a.m. – 10:10 a.m.

The pandemic changed the UC&C landscape, pushing new cloud-based technologies, video, and AI to the fore. Yet, post-pandemic, the majority of enterprises are not embarking on a complete refresh of their UC&C stack, but are addressing elements in a more piecemeal fashion. Going forward, what will happen in the next two years, as businesses further bear the brunt of rising inflation, flexible working and ongoing recession in many markets? How will this impact the OPEX and CAPEX communications spend in enterprises?

Join Omdia Principal Analysts Brent Kelly and Prachi Nema to:

  • Understand the implications of having a combination of new and legacy solutions in enterprises
  • Gain data-driven insights and recommendations for the UC&C vendors
  • Craft your go-to-market strategies for growth and excellence
