Enterprises want to deploy UCaaS on their existing infrastructure. This results in hybrid UCaaS, which allows many cloud providers to integrate their services with UCaaS service providers. Companies are shifting from on premise to cloud based UC, which is largely driving adoption. With enterprise mobility on the rise, the opportunity for UCaaS can prove a lucrative market for the vendor ecosystem.
