Vendors of general-purpose analytics tools have increased their efforts to provide solutions for communications service providers (CSPs). Every major telecoms OSS/BSS vendor has developed a big data analytics strategy, mostly based on Hadoop technologies. North American CSPs continued to account for the largest proportion of telecoms spending on analytics systems.
SAS Institute provides customer insight solutions for marketing departments within CSPs and is building on this core competency to expand installations to support new use cases. IBM is closing on SAS’s position as market leader. Its acquisition of The Now Factory has given it additional capabilities specifically for CSPs.
IBM is fuelling growth by addressing non-telco-specific requirements. Oracle’s core analytics capabilities continue to provide key functionality within CSPs. Its products support streaming data, data storage and a bundle of pre-defined use cases. SAP’s overall position grew in comparison with other vendors, through a combination of acquisitions, and better targeting of telecoms operators helped it to gain market share.
Teradata’s market share declined, primarily because open-source solutions are putting increasing pressure on its core offering. This is likely to continue during the next few years. Infomatica’s revenue grew significantly thanks to big data implementation projects at CSPs and the corresponding data- loading requirements. Revenue in the ‘Other’ category increased because every OSS/BSS vendor, such as Alcatel-Lucent, Amdocs, Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia Networks, has an analytics solution.
A significant number of OSS/BSS vendors now offer analytics solutions for the telecoms industry, and are taking market share from the established analytics vendors. This report provides an insight into which vendors are leading in the analytics systems market for the telecoms industry, and provides profiles of the leaders.
