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 Most Organizations Don't Track Business KPIs for Important Software Initiatives <P>This IDC Market Perspective covers the topic of using business KPIs to track the business success of software or services that enterprises build and is based on results from IDC's 2021 <I>Future of Digital Innovation Survey</I>.</P><P>"Organizations are increasingly building software that powers important business initiatives, but our research indicates that few are using business KPIs to determine if the software is achieving goals," said Nancy Gohring, research director for IDC's Future of Digital Innovation agenda program.
