Jun 25, 2015
Cambridge, MASSACHUSETTS** (June 25, 2015)—IHS (NYSE: IHS) today released excerpts from its 2015 IHS Infonetics Policy Management Vendor Scorecard , which profiles and analyzes the 8 top revenue producers in the policy management market: Alcatel-Lucent, Amdocs, Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei, Openet, Oracle and Redknee **.
The only report of its kind, IHS Infonetics’ scorecard evaluates the top policy management vendors on criteria using actual data and metrics, including direct feedback from service providers, vendor market share, market share momentum, financials, brand recognition, reputation for innovation, solution portfolio and other benchmarks. This fact-based approach eliminates subjectivity and ensures vendors are assessed accurately and fairly.
“This second edition of our policy management vendor scorecard has been updated to provide a more nuanced analysis of the vendor landscape, while still relying on real data,” said Shira Levine, research director for service enablement and subscriber intelligence at IHS.
“ Huawei and Cisco both stand out as leaders in this year’s policy scorecard. Huawei has invested significant resources in its policy management solutions over the last few years, building it into a best-of-breed product that it’s selling into opportunities beyond its infrastructure deals, while Cisco has aggressively built up its position in the market after its acquisition of BroadHop,” Levine said.
