DMG Consulting LLC, a leading provider of contact center, back-office and real-time analytics market research and consulting services, today released its 2017 – 2018 Speech Analytics Product and Market Report. DMG’s 12th annual edition of this Report provides a comprehensive review and unparalleled analysis of the competitors, products, features, pricing, payback, and trends and challenges in this complex technology sector.

After 14 years in the commercial market, speech analytics has reached maturity, but the solutions have not become commoditized. Currently, there are two categories of speech analytics vendors in the market: a large group of competitors who sell basic applications that focus on identifying key words and phrases, and a smaller set of feature-rich solution providers who offer extensive  business intelligence platforms that provide enterprise-level data. These solutions are being used by contact centers to convert unstructured phone conversations into structured data that yields a wealth of information about customer needs and expectations. Speech analytics also uncovers enterprise-wide trends and challenges, providing tactical and strategic information that can be used to enhance all aspects of an organization, beyond the contact center.  

The next step for speech analytics is to enter the world of data science. DMG expects leading vendors to design new algorithms targeted at a variety of enterprise opportunities. In the future, artificial intelligence (AI) will be used to enhance the ability of speech analytics to identify issues and recommend ways to address them. Machine learning is starting to be used to enable these solutions to quantify the impact of new trends and issues with minimal human intervention. “The opportunities and benefits are substantial for speech analytics vendors and the companies that use these solutions,” said Donna Fluss, President of DMG Consulting LLC. “Companies that take speech analytics seriously, and invest in the resources and best practices to build an effective program, are realizing quantifiable benefits that enhance the customer journey and improve the bottom line.”

The future of speech analytics is positive. Adoption remains strong, and there is still a significant unpenetrated market for the stand-alone solutions. An even greater opportunity exists for vendors to deliver solutions that are cloud-based and address both speech and text interactions. DMG predicts that the contact center speech analytics market will grow by 12% in 2017, 11% in 2018, 10% in 2019, 10% in 2020, and 10% in 2021.

The 2017 – 2018 edition covers 5 leading and contending vendors in-depth: Calabrio, CallMiner, NICE, SESTEK, and Verint; ZOOM International is also covered at a higher level.
