Market research firm Infonetics
Research released excerpts from its new Service
Delivery Platform Vendor Scorecard, which profiles, analyzes,
and ranks the 5 largest global vendors of service delivery platform
(SDP) software: Ericsson, HP, Huawei, OpenCloud, and Oracle.
The 21-page report
evaluates vendors entirely on criteria using factual data and metrics,
such as direct feedback from service providers, market share data, and
publicly available financial data. This approach eliminates subjective
scoring and ensures vendors are assessed accurately and fairly.
For a limited time, telecom service providers receive a 50% discount
on Infonetics’ SDP vendor scorecard. Contact Infonetics for details: www.infonetics.com/contact.asp.
SDP ANALYST NOTE
“Based on completely quantitative metrics, including financial
information, product capabilities and service provider feedback, we
named Ericsson the top vendor in the service delivery platform
(SDP) software market, with Oracle following close behind,” says Shira
Levine, directing analyst for service enablement and subscriber
intelligence at Infonetics
“Ericsson scored particularly well on service and support and product
reliability, and Oracle received high ratings on financial stability and
solution breadth. Both companies, however, scored below average when it
came to pricing.”
SERVICE DELIVERY PLATFORM SCORECARD HIGHLIGHTS
#1 Ericsson placed in the top 3 of every criterion except
Key to #2 Oracle’s continued success in the SDP software market
will be its ability to capitalize on the demand for enterprise
applications and services, including machine-to-machine
Smaller player OpenCloud held its own against the larger
competitors in the technology innovation and pricing categories
Service provider feedback resulted in a solid score for Huawei
ABOUT INFONETICS’ SDP SCORECARD
Infonetics’ 2014 service
delivery platform vendor scorecard evaluates the leading SDP
software vendors worldwide, as identified as top suppliers by service
providers—Ericsson, HP, Huawei, OpenCloud, and Oracle—using
criteria that are commonly used by buyers to select vendors, demonstrate
success in the marketplace, and position a vendor for success. The
matrix rankings are based on 8 criteria including market share, market
share momentum, financial stability, solution breadth, and service
provider opinions on technology innovation, product reliability,
service/support, and pricing. The report answers such questions as: Who
is the top scoring vendor overall? Who are the top vendors by criteria
(market share, solution breadth, service/support, etc.)? What are each
vendor’s strengths and weaknesses? To buy
