The State of the Market

The on-premise phone system is dead. When the top 2 technology companies in America, Cisco, and Microsoft, both introduce cloud-based UC/phone products and ease the development of on-premise server-based solutions, the market has spoken. The question for our clients is now this – what cloud-based platform should we select for our UC/phone needs? RingCentral? Fuze? 8x8? A smaller firm that has a niche that fits our specific vertical? The experts at C3 will help you select the right UCaaS provider for you based on the criteria that we’ll establish together.

According to Gartner, “the transition from premises-based UC to cloud-based UC is accelerating; the 15.8% CAGR(compound annual growth rate) for cloud telephony contrasts with the 10.8% decline for premises-based video infrastructure.”

Gartner also explains that “while cloud telephony is expected to grow at a 15.8% CAGR from 2016 through 2021, premises-based telephony will decline at a 9.5% CAGR, and product support services will decline at a 1.4% CAGR.”
