Infonetics: Data Brokering is Next Frontier for Subscriber Data Management

  Infonetics: Data Brokering is Next Frontier for Subscriber Data Management

Business Wire

BOSTON -- May 14, 2014

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest
Subscriber Data Management Software and Services report, which tracks
subscriber data management (SDM) software and services for mobile and
fixed-line networks.

SUBSCRIBER DATA MANAGEMENT ANALYST NOTE

“Now that the concept of a standalone subscriber data repository has gained
acceptance, the next big thing in subscriber data management will be
monetizing that unified data. Many operators are already leveraging
consolidated subscriber data for internal use, and some are exploring options
for brokering that data externally,” says Shira Levine, directing analyst for
service enablement and subscriber intelligence at Infonetics Research.

Levine continues: “Concerns about exposing subscriber data, even data that’s
been aggregated and made anonymous, still exist, but there’s growing interest
among operators in becoming identity providers, offering authentication and
authorization services to third parties like content providers, retailers, and
financial institutions.”

SUBSCRIBER DATA MANAGEMENT MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  *As operators continue modernizing their networks, and recognizing that
    legacy databases such as HLR and AAA aren’t going anywhere anytime soon,
    they are turning to SDM to ensure a consistent representation of
    subscriber information across various data sources
  *The subscriber data management (SDM) market reached $1.1 billion in 2013
  *Opex continues to drive SDM spending, but voice over LTE (VoLTE) is
    providing the real momentum, with operators migrating subscriber data from
    front-end applications to a consolidated back-end system that enables
    management of data across multiple
    network domains
  *Infonetics expects demand for solutions that enable operators to
    consolidate and manage subscriber data more efficiently to drive the SDM
    market to $2.5 billion in 2018
