Jun 22, 2017
Cloud Services Will Become Mainstream in the Enterprise Communications Market
[Shenzhen, China, June 22, 2017] Before the upcoming Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2017, Huawei joined International Data Corporation (IDC) issued the Cloud Enterprise Communications Serving Digital Enterprises white paper. It clearly conveys the evolution trends of cloud enterprise communications, market space, application value, and other key information in the industry.
The white paper points out that enterprise communications technology serves as primary tool that connects information and real-time decision-making. It is one of the important supporting technologies for enterprises to achieve digital transformation. As the scope of communications grows dramatically, types of communications become more abundant, requirements on communications evolve, and reconstructing enterprise communications services and experience methods has become an urgent task for enterprise service providers.
In the cloud era, Huawei will upgrade the originally enterprise communications services to cloud enterprise communications services based on cloud architecture. This will lead to quick delivery, on-demand payment, flexible deployment, self-service, open application programing interfaces (APIs), and other technology features brought by cloud computing. These features will provide enterprises with fully-connected network, in-depth integration, and valuable innovation of enterprise cloud communications services, helping enterprises release the technological benefits brought by digital transformation.
The white paper emphasizes that enterprise communications products that serve as ICT infrastructure and platform-based applications should be deployed (or migrated) preferentially to the cloud end. Currently, enterprise communications' deployment method is going through an obvious transformation. According to IDC's Worldwide Enterprise Communications Market Forecast 2014-2019, the scope of cloud-based architecture deployment surpassed that of on-premises deployment in the enterprise communications market for the first time in 2016. By 2019, cloud deployment will occupy up to 56.7% of the enterprise communications market. It is clear that the acceptance level for enterprise communications systems based on cloud is improving. Cloud deployment has become the first choice to deploy enterprise communications systems, resulting in cloud services becoming mainstream in the enterprise communications market.
IDC believes that the cloud enterprise communications market has entered a period of fast growth as the technology is becoming mature and the products, services, and business models are in place. The future holds huge industry markets and innovative application scenarios that are waiting for emerging cloud service providers to explore and engage in.
Huawei is dedicated to deeply understanding enterprise needs. Huawei’s Cloud enterprise communications solutions provide competitive platforms, and cloud services, developing a broad market space along with partners, expanding service scenarios with carrier customers, and achieving mutual benefits for enterprise users.
