Highlights of this title The advent of VoiceXML, the open standard for IVR and next-generation IVR platforms, is helping businesses to re-evaluate the strategic value of IVR in the enterprise. VoiceXML enables IVR to work in a web services environment through a software-based solution rather than an all-in-one hardware platform.

IVR platforms are becoming commoditized and are increasingly being sold bundled with larger contact center suites. Furthermore, vendors are providing more areas of the IVR solution stack from open-standards-based platforms, development tools, applications, services and hosting. The last few years have witnessed a number of mergers and acquisitions.

Moving forward, vendors are likely to be focusing on providing adaptable deployment options, supporting a wide range of applications and offering greater pricing flexibility. There is likely to be an increase in the uptake of hosted and hybrid IVR solutions as enterprises assess CAPEX and OPEX in the current economic downturn.
