Unify, the Atos brand for communications software and services, has been positioned by Aragon Research, Inc. in the Leader section of the Globe for Unified Communications and Collaboration, 20181. This report examines 15 major providers in the market focused on voice, video, messaging, and collaboration.
The Globe is segmented into four sectors: leaders, contenders, innovators or specialists. For the second consecutive year, Unify is positioned in the Leader section, recognizing vendors that have comprehensive strategies that align with industry direction and market demand, and effectively perform against those strategies.
“We believe Unify’s position in the leaders section reflects the strength of our UCC offering, in particular our complete capabilities with OpenScape Cloud for enterprise communications, combined with Circuit’s highly scalable and secure team collaboration platform,” said Paul Cunningham, CMO for Unify. “Built on our strong history of innovation in the UCC space, OpenScape Cloud and Circuit are key components of the Atos Digital Workplace, which delivers the solutions and expertise to support businesses as they transition to a digital workplace.”
“With Circuit and OpenScape Cloud, Unify has a complete portfolio of UCC capabilities, plus cloud, on-premise, and hybrid cloud deployment options,” said report author and lead analyst Jim Lundy. “These capabilities position Unify well going forward, particularly given the shift to more messaging-based collaboration, and are the reason Unify is positioned in the Leader section of this year’s Globe for Unified Communications and Collaboration.”
