Analysys Mason’s “Revenue management systems: worldwide market shares 2013” report has named Amdocs the global market-share leader in the overall revenue management space for the seventh consecutive year. According to Analysys Mason, Amdocs is the only vendor with overall market-share leadership across all geographical regions, and estimates Amdocs’ market share at 26.5 percent, nearly three times that of the second-placed vendor (with 9.6 percent).
The revenue management market covered by Analysys Mason includes billing, mediation, partner and interconnect solutions, across systems and services. Within billing, the report highlights the growing demand for convergent charging solutions in all regions, with convergent platforms becoming a mandatory requirement in all new revenue management deployments, and the report names Amdocs market-share leader in this sub-segment as well.
Furthermore, according to the Analysys Mason report, vendors today need to be able to offer policy-based charging capabilities, whether themselves or through partnerships, in order to address service provider’s growing need to charge for data delivered over mobile broadband, and for new types of data plans such as shared family and device plans. Analysys Mason also notes that as revenue management platforms move closer to real-time processing due to the constant growth in data usage, service providers need charging systems that can process this larger volume of usage data.
