Background:

DMG Consulting LLC, a leading provider of contact center, back-office and real-time analytics market research and consulting services, today released its 2012 Cloud-Based Contact Center Infrastructure Market Report. DMG’s fifth annual report on this sector explores vendor, product, functional, technical and pricing information to help contact center and IT managers determine if a cloud-based solution is appropriate for their organization and which solution is the best fit.

This Report also provides insights into market trends and challenges, analyzes market activity and adoption, reviews customer satisfaction with vendors, and offers implementation best practices to help users realize the greatest continuing return on their technology investments.

The Great Recession opened the door for the cloud to finally become a reality for contact center solutions. Companies that needed contact center infrastructure but did not want to make large capital expenditures gave the cloud a try as a short-term solution, and soon realized there were more benefits than challenges. DMG expects to see the rapid adoption continue, even as the economy strengthens, now that organizations appreciate the benefits of these solutions.

Over the last three years, adoption has nearly tripled from 2.2% to 5.9%, with the number of seats growing from 268,794 in 2008 to 871,717, as of the end of June 2012. Rapid adoption will continue to drive and speed the pace of innovation as larger companies consider moving their contact centers to the cloud. Cloud-based contact center infrastructure vendors are agile, innovative, and delivering new functionality to market quickly.

“The cloud-based contact center infrastructure market is exploding — more and larger companies are moving their contact centers to the cloud to take advantage of the many tangible benefits like lower start-up and implementation costs, increased flexibility, and the freedom to focus on their core business rather than on managing in-house solutions,” said Donna Fluss, President of DMG Consulting.

DMG projects that the cloud-based contact center infrastructure market will continue to build momentum, growing by 45%, 40%, 40% and 35%, each year, respectively, between 2012 and 2015. DMG estimates that a minimum of 18.1% of all contact center seats will be in the cloud by the end of 2015.

The 433-page 2012 Cloud-Based Contact Center Infrastructure Market Report covers all aspects of this booming and highly competitive IT sector. It analyzes 13 vendors in total, six at an in-depth level, including 8×8 (Contactual), Echopass, Five9, inContact, Interactive Intelligence and NewVoiceMedia. Seven others are reviewed at a slightly higher level, including Cisco, Connect First, Enghouse, Magnetic North, NexxPhase, VoltDelta and West.
