Yankee Group: Enterprise FMC half-baked

The Yankee Group says corporate enterprises have a "not now" attitude about fixed-mobile converged (FMC) services, which is "not now" what a lot of carriers would like to hear. Enterprises aren't expressing total apathy--they do like the productivity benefits of FMC, but aren't impressed enough by the cost savings.

The market research firm suggests that enterprises may want FMC to be a low-cost or free capability included in a broader package of services. Some carriers have approached FMC with trepidation, not sure of what the economic model or the demand might be. The study hints at answers to their question, but perhaps not answers that will speed up FMC offerings.
