Rapid technology evolution and the proliferation of unified communications and collaboration (UCC) tools are increasing the cost and complexity of managing and upgrading the enterprise information and communications (ICT) infrastructure. Most businesses perceive their ICT infrastructure and IT operations as relatively ineffective in enabling the organization to pursue broader business objectives. Opportunities are available for hosted and managed service providers to relieve some of the burden on in-house IT staff and enable them to focus on more strategic tasks, thus helping customer organizations gain a competitive advantage.

Research ObjectivesThe primary objective of this research is to assess North American C-level executives' attitudes and strategic plans regarding their organizations' use of hosted and managed communications and collaboration services, as well as the use of implementation and integration services related to unified communications and collaboration (UCC) tools. Supporting this primary objective, this research will also:•Identify business and technology challenges that can be addressed with hosted and managed services•Measure current and future adoption of hosted and managed services•Determine the perceived benefits/adoption drivers and perceived challenges/adoption restraints related to hosted and managed services•Compare perceptions and demand for hosted and managed services across different verticals•Compare demand for hosted and managed services by company size•Assess the potential for deploying various UCC tools using hosted and/or managed services•Identify customer preferences for using different providers of UCC services in general and providers of implementation and integration services more specifically•Determine executive decision makers' intentions with regard to IT and communications budgets, including trends in allocating budgets to new technologies and to maintenance and support services•Analyze budget allocations by industry and by company size
