[Infonetics]: Policy Management Market 2012 Growth - 32%; Openet Leads

According to the recent update to the Infonetics Research Policy Management Software  report, Shira Levine (pictured), directing analyst for service enablement and subscriber intelligence, concludes that the "The global policy management software market grew 32% in 2012, to $774 million" [$589M in 2011] and forecasts the "global policy management market to grow to almost $2.4 billion in 2017 .. Openet is the reigning policy management software revenue market share leader for the 3rd year in a row, followed closely by recently-acquired Tekelec".

A year ago Infonetics predicted (here) a market size of $1.9B for 2016, and positioned Huawei at the 2nd largest vendor (now switched places with Tekelec). My market size summary table (here) is updated accordingly.

"Oracle’s recent acquisition of Tekelec [see "Oracle - All the Diameter s/w One may Need, Now with Tekelec" - hereups the ante in the already hot policy management market, where we’re seeing the smaller players being edged out of deals by larger vendors .. “As operators increasingly look for ‘productized’ solutions that support the easy implementation of use cases [Openet], and the ability to define and create their own policy rules, many are replacing their first-generation policy management solutions or adding additional policy functionality to augment what’s already in place, and we believe this is going to shrink the opportunity for many of the niche players with point solutions”.
