The billing market grew in 2009, despite CSPs’ tight control on spending. This was mainly the result of strong growth in spending in China, as well as the success of some product vendors in capturing more of the product-related services opportunity. Oracle was the fastest-growing of the top-six vendors, thanks to good growth in product revenue and a shift in strategy towards product-related services. Huawei's revenue grew rapidly, benefiting from growth in China and in the vendor's EMEA market share.
The economic downturn restricted CSP spending generally, but did not cause and overall decline. CSPs were very cautious about spending on major billing projects, and tended to delay decisions and shift their focus towards pragmatic solutions to immediate problems. This particularly affected Amdocs and Convergys, which had been very successful with big projects in mature markets. Business optimisation was the fastest-growing segment because CSPs have been willing to invest in products that have a quick and low-risk impact on their bottom lines. Competitive pressures in developed and emerging markets stimulated CSP spending on new services and this, in turn, drove spending on upgrades and additional capabilities for existing billing systems.
