Oct 12, 2021 (Financial News Media via COMTEX) -- Palm Beach, FL -October 12, 2021 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Unified communications as a service (UCaaS) is a cloud-delivered unified communications model that supports and incorporates all messaging under one umbrella... it provides a connected communication platform which includes AI and automation development. It's one of the hottest new entrants on Wall Street, as Goldman Sachs, for example, just raised $200 Million for Nextiva, a private Unified Connection Company with a $2.7 valuation. Part of what Goldman saw in the company was that Unified Communications has a solution to a very grave problem: "On average, businesses are using between 15 to 25 applications to communicate, manage and collaborate with their customers and teams. The result is more logins, endless tabs, and jumping between multiple apps, resulting in customer data getting 'lost' between the siloes." These are all the problems UCSaaS are designed to alleviate. A report from Future Market Insights projects that the Unified Communication as a Service (UCaaS) market revenue, which totaled US$ 19.6 Billionin 2020, will rise at a CAGR of 14.5% between 2021 and 2031, and that the overall market is expected to reach US$ 85.7 Billion by 2031.

Another report from Grand View Research added: "The outbreak of COVID-19 is compelling enterprises to adopt a hybrid business model. As a result, enterprises are particularly consolidating multiple communication features and enabling cross-functioning to ensure efficient collaboration. The growing number of employees working from home is also prompting companies to implement UCaaS (Unified Communication as a Service) solutions. Companies are also adopting UCaaS platforms and tools as the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic prompts them to reevaluate their operational costs and protect their margins amid dwindling revenues. The latest technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) are playing a vital role in helping organizations in achieving their digital transformation goals. AI-enabled solutions can help organizations in effortless transcriptions, intelligently tracking speakers, intuitively recording calls, understanding users' needs, and offering relevant services. AI-enabled UCaaS solutions can also help in sentiment analysis. As such, AI-enabled UCaaS solutions can typically leverage data mining techniques to analyze discussions, reviews, and comments, direct mentions related to brands, products, and services, and help enterprises in strategizing accordingly."
