Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 12, 2013

A recent announcement by the U.S. Navy, introducing their move to the cloud network, has caused a lot of buzz within the business IT market. A recent report by Ventana Research, shows that 40% of respondents claimed that cloud-based services contributed to the greatest reduction in operating costs. A case study published by Amazon’s new cloud services stated that Thomson Reuters was able to reduce operating expenses by 40%-50%. While this move to the cloud may have positive affects on companies attempting to reduce their operating expenses, many tech companies are anxious to invest in the technology industry. “Smartphones have taken over from feature-phones, tablet adoption is impacting PC spending, and the Cloud is affecting the traditional software, services and infrastructure markets. IT spending is still growing organically, but not at the same pace as prior to the financial crisis says Stephen Minton, Vice President of International Data Corporations Global Technology and Industry Research Organization.

Despite the unstable global economy and cannibalization within the tech industry, this volatility has not seemed to shake j2 Global, parent company of eFax; eVoice; Onebox; Campaigner; and many other Cloud services.

According to a Zacks JCOM analyst report, eFax will now support 19 different languages across 49 countries. While many of j2s competitors may be hesitant to expand their market share in European countries, j2 catapulted their leadership status in 2012 by procuring six European cloud-based service companies. Their aggressive acquisition strategy has given them a record breaking 2012 year and strong position to expand their market even more in 2013. Currently, j2 holds 39.8% of the internet faxing market share, with the closest competitor at only 4.4% market share.

Not only did j2Global secure their leadership position within the virtual communications industry, j2 Global made another aggressive acquisition in the form of digital tech media.
