IDC MarketScape Provides an Updated Assessment of Worldwide Enterprise Videoconferencing and Telepresence Equipment Vendors for 2016

FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--()--International Data Corporation (IDC) has published an updated assessment profiling 11 vendors in the worldwide enterprise videoconferencing and telepresence equipment market. The IDC MarketScape report positioned Cisco and Polycom as "Leaders" in the enterprise video equipment market for 2016, while vendors such as Vidyo, Huawei, Avaya, Lifesize, Google, Pexip, Starleaf, Logitech, and ZTE were identified as either "Major Players" or "Contenders."

"Videoconferencing customers and prospects have a range of new offerings to choose from, but also the challenge of figuring out which solution is most appropriate for them," said Rich Costello, senior research analyst, Enterprise Communications Infrastructure. "Selecting a vendor solution should be based on several factors, including whether vendors meet the organizational criteria for audio/video functionality, interoperability, contextual collaboration, ease-of-use, cost savings and benefits, and the ability to integrate with UC portfolios and business applications, among other criteria."

There can be other customer challenges too - such as cost justification, return on investment (ROI), proper use case identification, implementation and support skills, and the integration complexities associated with video deployment projects. Vendors also can offer a range of deployment options for customers today (on-premises, managed, hosted, cloud, hybrid), either directly or through channel partners, helping to alleviate some of these challenges. This research presents IDC's critical success factors for the enterprise videoconferencing equipment market (including telepresence), in the short- and long-term, along with a ranking of how technology suppliers fair against those success factors.

The report, IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Enterprise Videoconferencing and Telepresence Equipment 2016 Vendor Assessment (IDC #US41304916) represents a vendor assessment of the worldwide enterprise videoconferencing equipment market through the IDC MarketScape model. Buyer input was used to generate this research, including phone interviews of the participating vendors' clients.

With a focus on the worldwide enterprise videoconferencing equipment market, the evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses vendors relative to the criteria and one another and highlights the factors expected to be the most influential for success in the market in both the short term and the long term.
