A study by Parsippany, NJ-based T3i Group in October 2008 finds that 65% of the 200 enterprises surveyed in the U.S. are implementing, trialing or planning to implement Unified Communications applications.
Yet, cutbacks in I.T. spending have curtailed some of these efforts. According to the survey, 7% of respondents say their unified communications plans are on hold, while 16% say they've had a major reduction in implementation plans. (For more on UC, see pages 16-20).
