Cloud-based UC gains traction
The forecast is looking pretty sunny for cloud-based unified communications (UC). Transparency Market Research predicts the value of the global UC-as-a-Service (UCaaS) market will grow from US$5.6 billion in 2013 to US$37.8 billion by 2022.

SMEs see it as a way to devote less IT resources to communications applications, Ovum says, while larger enterprises view it as a way to replace complex multivendor PBX networks and move communications spending from capex to opex.
