Cost cuts, not convergence, boost VoIP

More than 50% of the 3,000 enterprise IT managers polled say they might consider moving to a converged voice and data solution this year, according to a survey conducted by market researcher Vanson Bourne, conducted on behalf of storage company Zycko.

Lack of funds is the biggest barrier to adoption for 40% of the respondents, followed by contentment with existing suppliers (38%), lack of resources (33%) and a lack of knowledge about products (18%). However, more than 50% said this would not deter them from considering VoIP.

Cutting costs is still the main reason for adopting VoIP, cited by almost 66% of respondents in most sectors, although financial services companies place convergence as the key attraction.
