The service delivery platform services and software market will grow to $4.6 billion in 2014, according to a report published by Infonetics Research.
Infonetics Research (News - Alert) recently released the first edition of its 2010 Service Delivery Platform software and services report. This report tracks fixed-line and wireless SDP software and services that operators use to facilitate the creation and delivery of services.
The report stated that SDP purchases are increasingly being made on a global basis. The report also observed that parent companies are making decisions on SDP investments for its subsidiaries. And some cases, such as Telefonica (News - Alert), are looking to build centralized SDPs that cover multiple countries.
The new report also found that Oracle remains the worldwide revenue leader in the SDP software segment, and Ericsson (News - Alert) maintains its leadership in the SDP services segment, while Huawei’s significant contract win at Telefonica and other smaller deals raised its position in the SDP market considerably in 2009.
Shira Levine directing analyst for next gen OSS and policy at Infonetics Research, noted that mobile operators are feeling the pressure to roll out their app stores over the next 12 months, and they’re increasingly looking at service delivery platforms to manage the complexity associated with these third-party content ecosystems.
Levine believes that this is an opportunity for SDP suppliers, particularly those SDP services companies that are able to provide turnkey solutions on a hosted basis to help operators launch their app stores quickly and with minimal risk.
This newest report from Infonetics Research provides regional and worldwide market size, vendor market share, forecasts through 2014, market drivers, and analysis for fixed-line and wireless SDP software and services.
Additionally, the also report includes customer wins and service provider/vendor announcements made by Accenture (News - Alert), Astelit, COSMOTE, Globe Telecommunications, Korea Telecom Freetel, KPN, Maxis Communications Berhad, Mobilkom, Mobily Saudi Arabia, Shanghai Unicom, SingTel (News - Alert), TDC, Telecom Italia Mobile, Telefónica, Telstra and others.
