Commercial Strength Beats Technology

Nokia Networks, Microsoft Elata and Motricity Are Best Positioned Vendors -- Strategy Analytics released, "Mobile Content Delivery Platforms: Search for Value-Add and Scale as Solutions Commoditize." This report concludes that network operators are now more concerned with the commercial aspects of content provisioning as the majority of the technical problems have been solved and little functional differentiation exists between the competing platforms. As the content market matures, the number of content retailers will proliferate, making it a growing target segment for platform vendors. However, Philip Taylor, a Director in the Strategy Analytics Global Wireless Practice, notes, "Increasingly, purchase decisions will be made by operators on the basis of a variety of commercial factors including the business objective of the operator, the compatibility of the delivery platform with existing administration systems, the financial stability of the platform vendor and the strength of the platform vendor's partnerships with other IT Services companies. Outside of this, the ability to offer value added services, such as Campaign Management will also make a difference to vendors competing for operator business."
