market researchA new Research and Markets report forecasts the unified communication as a service market to reach a compound annual growth rate of 11.2 percent beginning in 2016 through 2022.

The report indicates that telecommunications, information technology and retail applications currently dominate the market and that banking, financial services and insurance and logistics will drive the future market as business process outsourcing in these sectors rise, Research and Markets said Thursday.
