Worldwide Software Configuration, Change, and Process Management Forecast, 2019–2023: Agile DevOps and Collaboration Drive Growth

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


This IDC study provides the 2019–2023 forecast for the worldwide software configuration, change, and process management (SCCPM) market. Revenue growth for leading vendors resulting from G2000 and SMB 2018 investment led to revenue growth of 16.3% to reach $3.42 billion (as compared with13.4% growth to reach $2.94 billion in 2017). This resulted from some growth on the part of some major vendors across areas of innovation in this broad market and massive, rapid growth on the part of others; investment by organizations seeking to gain agile automation and management for requirements; and DevOps expenditures in the wake of higher investment during 2018. The need for governance began to drive growth, and it will continue to do so in 2019–2020, though not at such highly sustainable levels over the forecast period.

"Broadening engagement and investment despite some 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 2018 SCCPM market, at 16.3%, as companies sought to drive innovation and manage complex IT initiatives," says Melinda Ballou, IDC research director, Agile Application Life-Cycle Management, Quality and Portfolio Strategies. "We expect that a number of factors will continue to contribute to double-digit SCCPM growth across the forecast period of 2019–2023, including the strong emergence of agile and DevOps environments to help address mobile, embedded IoT and cloud development, complex sourcing, and the need to manage distributed development, open source, increased compliance demands, and the evolution of SaaS deployment models that enable faster adoption and decapitalized spending models. Indeed, we saw a second consecutive year of very high double-digit revenue growth in 2018 for many innovative vendors targeting these areas. We expect the push toward multimodal, multiplatform deployments (including mobile, social media applications, and embedded with big data analytics) to drive stronger growth over the forecast period with a high CAGR of 11% to reach revenue of around $5.77 billion by 2023 as platforms consolidate via acquisition and organic evolution and as platform-as-a-service DevOps solutions emerge over time."
