A recent survey of Computer Profile shows that Microsoft in The Netherlands is the most used supplier for VoIP, UC and Videoconferencing. Cisco is number two with a combined marketshare.
Computer Profile did conduct 5.000 interviews last year with Dutch IT responsible employees for companies of 50 employees and more for their use of (tele)communication solutions.
Some interesting graphics are here to share. As with any survey and the interpretation of the results it can be explained in different directions. It shows more or less the future direction and the focus of the larger vendors in the market and less if they are number 1, 2 or 3 and thus the best choice for your company.
Vendors do often work together or have different brands in the market e.g. Cisco and Tandberg. Also the Dutch market with a high penetration of Mitel will be different with the German market were Siemens/Unify will be much bigger.
So take it with a grain of salt and use your own logic for the correct interpretation within your organization. Of course MobilityWorks can be of help to find the most optimal strategy and directions for your company, just contact us.
For the penetration of Unified Communications, MobilityWorks does prefer to speak about Universal Communications. We do see this as the integration of real-time communication solutions for messaging, voice, video, content and collaboration in one environment for the end-user. Which does not necessarily mean it has to come from one vendor.
Videoconferencing is still seen as a standalone solution within the communication of a company, but there is a strong shift to Universal Communications as the previous heavy investments in videoconferencing can now be integrated in a more user friendly way. In the area of videoconferencing does Microsoft mainly mean the use of video in Lync/Skype for Business and their cooperation with Polycom. But don’t forget the other kids on the block with their cloud integration with VC and Skype foor Business e.g. Starleaf.
