[Infonetics]: SDM Market to Reach $1.9B by 2016; Oracle and Amdocs Compete

A new research by Shira Levine (pictured), directing analyst for next gen OSS and policy at Infonetics Research concludes that "The global subscriber data management (SDM) market, including SDM software and services for mobile and fixed line networks, reached $570 million in 2011, up 57% from 2010 .. [and] forecasts the SDM software and services market to grow to $1.86 billion by 2016, driven increasingly by network modernization initiatives, particularly LTE deployments, which are prompting mobile operator interest in the separation of back-end SDM databases from front-end applications to consolidate subscriber data".

Last year's forecast by Infonetics was $1.5B for 2015 (here), and $1.5B for 2014 forecasted in October 2010 (here).

"SDM will play a key role in operators’ offload strategies by supporting subscriber preferences and entitlements regardless of which network is actually carrying the subscriber’s traffic .. Traditional SDM vendors are facing intensified competition from IT players like Oracle (here) and Amdocs, who are looking to leverage their capabilities in master data management (MDM)"
