So much so that despite downturns in many business areas, enterprise videoconferencing is a strong growth sector, according to IDC, the technology information consultancy.
In its report, EMEA Videoconferencing Equipment Forecast 2011-2016, IDC notes that videoconferencing revenues in Europe, the Middle East and Africa grew 20.5 per cent last year to $809.5m.
But videoconferencing is not just a matter of installing Skype and getting on with it: deciding to implement videoconferencing in a business of any size is a challenge not only for information technology (IT) departments but also for chief financial officers (CFOs).
The latter have to make decisions about the cost benefits of high-definition telepresence versus lower-end equipment, and about whether to fund the capital cost of setting up in-house infrastructure or going with a cloud provider. They also have to consider the cost implications for existing IT infrastructure.
