Learn about the important trends in the UCaaS space for 2023.
The move to hybrid and remote work environments, sped up by the COVID-19 pandemic, has led to a rapid rise in the use of unified communications-as-a-service (UCaaS). What does the future hold for this fast-growing industry? Below are five key trends to watch in the UCaaS space in 2023.
Cloud Adoption Over Legacy Systems
Many companies have fast-tracked their plans to move to the cloud to support remote work environments. This move has highlighted the numerous benefits of cloud-based infrastructure over legacy on-premises equipment. With more than half of enterprise IT spending predicted to shift to the cloud by 2025, more organizations will abandon old VoIP systems for the reliability and modern security measures offered by UCaaS.
With the rise of hybrid work and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, ensuring security is more crucial than ever. UCaaS providers are expected to invest significantly in cybersecurity measures to protect against increasing cyberattacks and meet customer security requirements like single-sign-on (SSO) and transport layer security (TLS).
UCaaS is growing rapidly due to its ability to support remote work on any device and location. Expect more integration with iOS and Android devices to ensure seamless calling, texting, and emailing from mobile devices and integration with CRM, ERP, and management tools.
5G and Satellite Connections
The evolution from work-from-home (WFH) to work-from-anywhere (WFA) requires reliable connectivity. 5G and satellite technologies will play a key role in this transition, allowing users to access cloud communication services from any location and device.
Vendor and Service Consolidation
There’s an anticipated increase in mergers and acquisitions among UCaaS vendors in 2023. Companies will look to fill service gaps and increase profitability by consolidating resources. This consolidation presents a cost-saving opportunity for organizations, as working with a single provider often lowers the total investment cost and simplifies account management.
In 2023, watch for a stronger focus on cloud migration, enhanced cybersecurity, AI and mobile integrations, and further vendor and service consolidation in the UCaaS space. As organizations continue to establish their post-pandemic work environments, the demand for UCaaS solutions that ease the IT burden and provide cost savings will continue to grow.
