Podcast: Microsoft, Cisco and AT&T in the Lead, Says Infonetics' Machowinski
Last year was difficult for just about every company in IT and telecom, but Infonetics Research's Matthias Machowinski says that firms in the UC platforms and software client sectors did better than most. Machowinski discusses that finding, how he sees the market, Avaya's roadmap announcement earlier this week and other topics with our Carl Weinschenk.
Last week, Infonetics Research released two reports written by Matthias Machowinski, the firm's Directing Analyst for Enterprise Voice and Data. Machowinski's reports – Unified Communication and IP Contact Center Market Share, Size, and Forecasts and Unified Communication Deployment Strategies and Vendor Ratings: North American Enterprise Survey suggested that the UC market will top $1 billion by 2013, that the sector lost a modest 4 percent last year and that Microsoft, Cisco and AT&T are the top vendors. Machowinski discussed these and other points with Unified Communications Edge Site Editor Carl Weinschenk. (Podcast time: 22:45).
