UCaaS: The Landscape

Based on components, the Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) market has been segmented as follows:

  • Telephony
  • Unified Messaging
  • Conferencing
  • Collaboration Platforms and Applications
  • Analytics

There are often different variations on these options but, by and large, features tend to fall into these categories. While many products and services fulfill at least some of these functions on a point basis, the true value of UCaaS lies in interoperability and integration. The basic value proposition is to combine all these features into a fully unified and fully compatible communications solution that displaces a series of point products, thereby simplifying management, strengthening interoperability and, in most cases, reducing cost and complexity.
