CIS Video Conferencing Customers Are Slow in Moving to Cloud Computing
Brooklyn, New York - Working remotely using video conferencing solutions is becoming more popular: 80 percent of interviewed customers prefer the flexibility and efficiency of working off-site, while 15 percent of employees still prefer working at the office. The situation has changed compared with the research results of the previous spring.�
"Though the majority of clients prefer on-premises solutions, demand for hosted services is slowly increasing," says Michael Gotalsky, TrueConf CEO. "Mostly it is presupposed by the fact that our business people are not ready to delegate their rights and responsibilities to an off-site provider, especially in terms of security. On the other hand, small and medium-sized companies use our hosted service more often, choosing not to spend money on maintaining their video conferencing infrastructure".
Fifty-eight percent of those interviewed chose on-premises video conferencing systems - MCUs and endpoints; 32 percent prefer hosted video conferencing services, while 7 percent purchase managed services, but not endpoints. As before, the majority of interviewed professionals prefer on-premises solutions to hosted ones. Still, there is a growing interest in hosted products: last year only 22 percent of seminar guests were interested in this video conferencing technology.�
TrueConf has observed that video conferencing systems are implemented basically in 4 spheres: 32 percent of those interviewed use video conferencing for internal communications within a company, 21 percent organize distance learning through video communications, 20 percent need video conferencing to demonstrate and broadcast, and 19.5 percent use video conferencing for external communication.
