Infonetics: Data Brokering is Next Frontier for Subscriber Data Management

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
