Worldwide Software Configuration, Change, and Process Management Market Shares, 2017: Double-Digit Growth Driven by DevOps, Agile Innovation, and Multimodel Deployment

By: Melinda-Carol BallouResearch Director, Agile ALM, Quality & Portfolio Strategies


This IDC study provides 2017 vendor share analysis for the worldwide software configuration, change, and process management (SCCPM) market. Revenue growth from leading vendors resulting from Global 2000 and SMB 2017 investment led to revenue growth of 12.6% to $2.9 billion (as compared with 4.7% growth to $2.6 billion in 2016). This resulted from some growth on the part of some major vendors across areas of innovation in this broad market, extremely high double-digit growth from innovators (such as Atlassian, GitHub, CloudBees, Blueprint, Jama, and XebiaLabs), investment by organizations seeking to gain agile automation and management for requirements, and DevOps expenditures in the wake of higher investment during 2017. The need for governance began to drive growth, and it will continue to do so in 2017–2019.

"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 2017 SCCPM market at a high rate of 12.6% as companies sought to drive innovation and manage complex IT initiatives," says Melinda Ballou, IDC research director, Agile ALM, Quality and Portfolio Strategies. "Dynamic growth on the part of key vendors such as Atlassian and GitHub along with other innovators and the stabilization and some growth on the part of other enterprise providers drove SCCPM adoption in this broad market area. 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. A number of factors will continue to contribute to SCCPM growth, including the strong emergence of agile and DevOps environments to help address mobile, cloud, and embedded development and systems engineering as IoT emerges, complex sourcing, and the need to manage distributed development, open source, increased compliance demands. Indeed, we saw high double-digit revenue growth for many innovative vendors targeting these areas, mitigating some losses for legacy solutions. We expect the push toward multimodal, multiplatform deployments (including mobile, social media applications, and those embedded with big data analytics) to drive stronger growth in the 2017–2022 period as platforms consolidate via acquisition and organic evolution and as platform-as-a-service (PaaS) application life-cycle management (ALM) solutions emerge over time."
