Research by ReRez Research

Enterprise communications is in transition from PBX to IP, from premises to cloud, and from voice to video to web collaboration. Siemens Enterprise Communications decided to commission ReRez Research of Dallas, Texas, to survey the state of enterprise communications at the beginning of 2012. We found that global organizations are in a state of flux/transition. They are running their PBX solutions alongside the new IP system, for smooth transitioning. We found evidence that nearly half have plans to move their communications to the cloud in 2012. But gaps in critical skills areas, such as cloud, are combining with chronic understaffing and high turnover to hinder the transition to IP-based communications.

Siemens Enterprise Communications released the results of its State of Enterprise Communications 2012 Study, which found, not surprisingly that pure IP infrastructures save enterprises 43% over traditional PBX systems. The study found that an increasingly mobile workforce is forcing more enterprises to adapt cloud technology and that staff training and headcount issues often delay a company’s migration to a unified communications (UC) platform. The study examines enterprise communications practices worldwide, including the influences of mobile and cloud computing on communications infrastructures. Rick Puskar SVP of Global Portfolio Management Innovation at Siemens is my guest as we discuss the state-of-enterprise communications and how IT business leaders can gain from its findings.
