NEW YORK, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
The worldwide service assurance market is forecast to grow from USD2.93 billion in 2013 to USD4.13 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 7.2%. LTE will continue to be a major driver for service assurance investments during the forecast period. This report provides a 5-year revenue forecast for five application segments, four service sectors and four regions.
LTE roll-out and data service take-up in emerging markets will drive long-term growth in the service assurance systems market
-The service assurance market will grow from USD2.93 billion in 2013 to USD4.13 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 7.2%.
-LTE will continue to be a major driver for service assurance investments during the forecast period. Growth in the first 3 years will be relatively slow because LTE-related spending in mature markets such as North America (NA) will decline.
-Investments will increase in emerging markets as operators accelerate LTE deployments, which will drive higher growth during the latter part of the forecast period. Countries in emerging Asia–Pacific (APAC) and parts of the Middle East and Africa (MEA) have planned LTE roll-outs in this period.
-Cost and bottom-line pressures will drive investments in network operations centre (NOC) consolidation initiatives and system rationalisation projects. Service operation centre (SOC) implementation, big data and real-time network analytics will be strong drivers, for improving customer experience, increasing customer loyalty and reducing churn.
-In the long term, a number of operators will deploy voice over LTE (VoLTE). Given the complexity of VoLTE, operators will need advanced monitoring systems to assure the service.
-As operators evolve their networks to introduce virtualised network functions, they will need new assurance and orchestration systems that can manage both legacy and virtualised infrastructure.
-LTE network roll-out in emerging markets, including Emerging APAC and MEA.-Increased consumption of data services in LATAM and Emerging APAC, because of increasing smartphone penetration.-Service assurance consolidation to drive customer experience improvements, and transformation from network-centric to service- and customer-centric operations.-Use of real-time network analytics to better understand customer behaviour.-Efficient network planning using near-real-time network performance data.-New services such as VoLTE and Wi-Fi.-New cloud-based services combining compute, storage and network.-Network virtualisation initiatives such as NFV and SDN.-Increasing traction in the M2M domain.
-Organisational barriers to sharing network data between departments.
-Regulatory issues related to net neutrality.
-Inadequate support from senior management for transformation projects.
-Poor understanding of CEM principles.
-Difficulty in justifying the business case for CEM.
-Lack of OSS standards for virtualised networks will inhibit investment in assurance systems for NFV and SDN.

19.Service management will have the highest CAGR, at 12.1%, as operators recognise the benefits of measuring customer quality of experience
20.Service management: Mobile saturation and high levels of competition will drive operators to improve customer experience and reduce churn
21.Service management: Competitive pressures will continue to drive high spending in EMEA and NA, but APAC will be the fastest-growing region
22.Performance monitoring revenue will return to stable growth during the forecast period and demand for unified monitoring solutions will increase
23.Performance monitoring: Mobile will be the fastest-growing segment as more operators launch LTE, and cross-domain monitoring will be in demand
24.Performance monitoring: EMEA and NA will contribute 80% of revenue, while APAC and LATAM will have a limited impact despite high growth
25.Workforce automation: Budget pressures and competing business objectives will continue to impede investments in this sub-segment
26.Workforce automation: The economic benefit of workforce automation solutions is to improve labour efficiency and reduce truck rolls
27.Workforce automation: CSPs in NA invest twice as much in workforce automation software as those in Western Europe

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...

Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed.
