This IDC study provides an analysis of the 2013 automated software quality (ASQ) vendor market share and 2014-2018 forecast. It discusses IDC's automated software quality assessment with specific vendor analysis for a market that continued with lower, single-digit growth of 2.5% to $2.4 billion compared with 5.7% growth to $2.36 billion in 2012. 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 than last year due to a volatile economy, evolving product releases, and some encroachment by open source tools, with the notable exception of two, including major revenue player HP at 31.4% share (and declines of 11%). Midsize innovative vendors in emerging technology areas like mobile, software quality analysis and measurement, and cloud testing contributed to enable some ASQ growth in 2013. We are beginning to observe the impact also of OSS usage (such as Selenium). We also saw acquisitions moving into 2014, indicating leverage of quality analysis vendors Coverity in the embedded space, with its acquisition by Synopsys. Longer term and moving into 2014-2016, the ASQ market is slated for an overall trajectory of growth with an expected CAGR of 6.1% (up slightly from the 6.0% expected in 2Q13). Consolidation in the ASQ arena also included the acquisition of Klocwork by Rogue Wave (1Q14) and SmartBear's acquisition of Lucierna (4Q13). IDC expects ongoing acquisitions in the 2014-2015 time frame as enterprise providers seek to broaden their ASQ portfolios.
"In a global economy that remained volatile in 2013 but with ongoing, dramatically increased complexity for multimodal software development and deployment and service virtualization with constrained resources, we saw some ongoing investment and demand for ASQ solutions and some growth for vendors, typically. 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 analysis and security leverage, and agile and mobile solutions; these areas are dominated by small and medium-sized companies. We expect additional acquisitions in this space in the 2H14-2015 time frame and solid ASQ growth through the 2014-2018 forecast period."
