This IDC study provides 2016–2020 forecast for the worldwide software configuration, change, and process management (SCCPM) market. Revenue growth from leading vendors resulting from G2000 and SMB 2015 investment led to revenue growth of 4.6% to reach $2.5 billion in 2015. This resulted from some growth on the part of some major vendors across areas of innovation in this broad market, investment by organizations seeking to gain agile automation and management for requirements, and DevOps expenditures in the wake of higher investment during 2015. The need for governance began to drive growth, and it will continue to do so in 2016–2017.
“Ongoing volatility in the world economy and the position of software as a competitive driver drove the need for effective management, resulting in growth for the 2015 SCCPM market at 4.6% as companies sought to drive innovation and manage complex IT initiatives," says Melinda Ballou, IDC program director, Application Life-Cycle Management and Executive Strategies. “The impact of OSS complicated purchase patterns for commercial offerings, and we are increasingly seeing integration with key OSS solutions such as Git and commitment to OSS standards such as OpenStack and Cloud Foundry. We expect that a number of factors will continue to contribute to SCCPM growth, including the strong emergence of agile and DevOps environments to help address mobile, embedded IoT and cloud development, complex sourcing, and the need to manage distributed development, open source, increased compliance demands, and the evolution of SaaS deployment models that enable faster adoption and decapitalized spending models. Indeed, we saw high-double-digit revenue growth in 2015 for many innovative vendors targeting these areas. We expect the push toward multimodal, multiplatform deployments (including mobile, social media applications, and embedded with big data analytics) to drive stronger growth in the forecast period as platforms consolidate via acquisition and organic evolution and as platform-as-a-service ALM solutions emerge over time."

This IDC study provides results of a joint survey conducted by IDC and the CIO Executive Council (CEC). IT buyers and vendors alike talk about how important it is to take their mutual relationships to a more integrated, strategic level. These discussions have become more frequent in the wake of digital disruption: Yesterday’s strategic solutions/services are now mere commodities, budgets are shifting, and procurement decisions are more democratic. In today’s landscape, the precise definition of “strategic" can be elusive. In our joint study with the CIO Executive Council, we tried to quantify the “strategic buyer-vendor relationship." The framework is built on a previous CEC study from 2012. Leveraging CEC’s knowledge of the CIO community (including the findings of a CIO Research Advisory Board that provided input on criteria) and IDC’s insights of vendors’ sales and delivery organizations, we identified the key components of strategic partnerships. To get a complete picture of the B2B technology landscape, we also interviewed numerous IT leaders and sales executives from vendors before fielding the survey instrument. The results provide CIOs and IT vendors alike with valuable insights into the key attributes of the most strategic vendors while identifying perception gaps and potential impediments to long-term success. At the same time, we interviewed key players in the vendor community and learned how they identify strategic buyers. One of the many potential benefits of strategic partnership is a faster and more focused negotiation period.
“IT buyers and vendors alike aspire toward strategic partnership — rising above the transactional to become co-collaborators in creating demonstrable value for the enterprise," said Brendan McGowan, global media bureau and client research manager, CEC. “Our study captures the five key elements — client and market knowledge, collaboration, communication, flexible pricing and interest in shared risk/reward, and responsiveness — that are absolutely critical to long-term success."
“About one third of buyers said that they would let their most strategic vendors help them structure the request for proposals (RFPs)," said Xiao-Fei Zhang, research director, IDC. “And almost two-thirds of IT leaders (64%) said that they would allow strategic vendors to bypass the competitive bid process sometimes. So being perceived as a strategic partner makes a world of difference to providers."

This IDC study provides an analysis of the 2015 automated software quality (ASQ) vendor market share. It discusses IDC’s ASQ assessment with specific vendor analysis for a market that continued with better single-digit growth of 2.4% to $2.49 billion in 2015 compared with growth of 1.7% to $2.43 billion in 2014. As organizations continued to reinvest in ASQ solutions to address increased complexity across a variety of vectors (including business, technology, software sourcing, and diverse platform deployment with mobile, social business, and cloud), most major-share ASQ solution providers experienced some revenue increases, though at lower levels typically compared with last year due to a volatile economy. Others experienced losses largely due to evolving product releases, shifts to cloud delivery models, and some encroachment by open source tools, including major revenue player HPE at 26.4% share (down from 28.8% share in 2014 with a decline of 6.2%) and IBM at 9.8% and a decline of 21.9% (due to some extent from divesting its Purify product line to UNICOM). Midsize innovative vendors in emerging technology areas like mobile, software quality analysis and measurement, and cloud testing contributed to enable improved ASQ growth in 2015. We are beginning to observe the impact also of OSS usage and integration by vendors (such as Selenium and Cucumber). We also saw acquisitions moving into 2016, indicating leverage of quality analysis vendor Coverity in the embedded space, with Synopsys augmenting its 2014 Coverity acquisition with follow-on acquisitions of security-related and other products (e.g., Protecode). Consolidation in the ASQ arena also included the acquisition of Klocwork by Rogue Wave (1Q14), the acquisition of Keynote by Dynatrace (3Q15), and CA Technologies’ acquisition of Grid-Tools (2Q15) to augment the company’s prior ITKO acquisition (2011). Longer term and moving into 2016–2018, the ASQ market is slated for an overall trajectory of growth. IDC expects ongoing acquisitions in the 2016–2018 time frame as enterprise providers seek to broaden their ASQ portfolios.
“In a global economy that remained somewhat volatile in 2015 and with ongoing, dramatically increased complexity for multimodal software development and deployment and service virtualization with constrained resources, we saw ongoing investment and demand for ASQ solutions and some growth. Market and product evolution will occur as larger vendors deliver more complete quality and life-cycle management solutions and consolidation continues," says Melinda Ballou, program director for Application Life-Cycle Management and Executive Strategies at IDC. “As a result of the earlier disruption and ongoing software quality challenges, we saw some continuing ASQ investment. Smaller vendors continue to play a crucial role for market innovation as we see from cloud testing, quality measurement with static and dynamic analyses and security leverage, and agile and mobile solutions; these areas are dominated by small and medium-sized companies. We expect additional acquisitions and solid ASQ growth in this space in the 2016–2018 time frame."

The study provides IDC’s definitions of SMB and fixed-line telecom voice and data categories, and it presents a 2015 market share analysis of the top telecom providers impacting the small and medium-sized business markets.
“The market for U.S. telecom services sold into the small and medium-sized business segment is highly competitive and increasing in intensity — particularly in the medium part of the SMB," says Matt Davis, program director of SMB Telecom Services at IDC. “Cable operators started in the small business segment over a decade ago have taken significant share; now, they are well into their strategic move into the midmarket, setting the stage for a highly competitive environment."
