IDC categorizes the market into four solution segments and provides an analysis and forecast for the respective market sizes. The four segments are the IP telephony (IPT) market, the IP conference system market, the IP contact center (IPCC) system market, and the collaborative workspace market. The market forecast used in this study considers the impact and outlook of the COVID-19 pandemic as of the end of March 2021. The market grew rapidly in 2020 as a result of the rapid penetration of remote work/work from home (WFH) in user companies due to the impact of the outbreak. "In order for the Japan UC&C workspace market to grow continuously, IT suppliers should support the implementation of remote work in small and medium-sized businesses, expand use cases, support continuous workstyle reforms by improving digital workspaces utilization in Japan, and develop new business opportunities by utilizing the data accumulated in noncontact solutions," says Saki Ohta, market analyst, Software and Security, IDC Japan.</P> Market Forecast Fri, 18 Jun 2021 04:00:00 GMT Takashi Manabe, Saki Ohta Sustainable Datacenters: Vertiv and Green Mountain Scale New Heights with Hyperefficient Operations <P>This IDC Vendor Profile outlines Green Mountain's use of specialized cooling technology from Vertiv to operate at high energy efficiency.</P> Vendor Profile Fri, 18 Jun 2021 04:00:00 GMT Jennifer Cooke The Biggest Investigation in U.S. History: The January 6, 2021, Capitol Riot <P>This IDC Perspective discusses the question of striking the right balance between public safety and civil liberties in light of investigations made into the Capitol riots.
