FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--International Data Corporation (IDC) has just released 2016 IDC Innovators research recognizing vendors within the unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) market that are focused on performance monitoring and management solutions.

"The solutions profiled in this research can intuitively provide benefits such as automated, accelerated provisioning; real-time monitoring; advanced reporting and analytics; and/or proactive troubleshooting, among others."
