Monetization Ideas Bring Policy Management Market Evolution, Heavy Reading Finds

leave a comment »

— The policy management market has changed over the last few years due to CSPs’ new monetization tactics, says Heavy Reading Service Provider IT Insider
NEW YORK, Dec. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Communication service providers (CSPs) are pursuing new monetization strategies in the policy management market, causing the market to drastically change over the last few years, according to the latest report from Heavy Reading Service Provider IT Insider (www.heavyreading.com/servsoftware), a subscription research service from Heavy Reading(www.heavyreading.com).
Smart Data Monetization: Operator Strategies Take Shape analyzes the role that policy management will play in network operator data monetization efforts. It looks at the potential for policy management to serve as a cooperative platform for network and IT departments to collaborate. The report also assesses different business drivers for using policy management in data monetization initiatives. It includes results from an exclusive Heavy Reading survey of network operators regarding their deployment strategies regarding policy management and charging.
“The policy management market has undergone radical transformation in the last few years,” says Ari Banerjee, research analyst with Heavy Reading Service Provider IT Insider and author of the report. “The evolution of policy management and the change in the manner in which policy management solutions are now being deployed have a lot to do with how CSPs are rethinking their revenue monetization strategies.”
As CSPs continue to feel the data crunch on their networks, it is very possible for them to manage the copious amounts of data while also creating monetization, Banerjee says. “The fact that the majority of CSPs expect to change their rate plans and/or introduce new monetization policies as many as two to three times a year indicates that a highly agile solution will be needed to enable such goals,” he continues. “CSPs will be smart to align with a vendor that will be able to provide a flexible solution that will enable a manageable environment and allow for quick time-to-market for new services and products.”
Key findings of Smart Data Monetization: Operator Strategies Take Shape include the following:
Leveraging real-time, policy-driven solutions will provide operators with tools to differentiate their services, be more creative in their service offerings and distribute and control network resources more effectively
End-to-end policy deployment requires network and IT convergence
Policy decisions are being made jointly by network, IT and marketing, with marketing emerging as a key influencer group
Expect more market consolidation in the next six to 12 months
Emerging markets seem more advanced with more simple segmented plans while developed markets seem more aggressive with their plans for advanced segmented plans
Smart Data Monetization: Operator Strategies Take Shape is available as part of an annual single-user subscription (six issues) to Heavy Reading Service Provider IT Insider, priced at $1,595. Individual reports are available for $900 (single-user license).

Sydney Welcomes New Airline Service from Western China

leave a comment »

SYDNEY /PRNewswire/ — Sichuan Airlines’ first Chengdu-Chongqing-Sydney service, a new route which offers visitors from Western China direct access to Sydney, Australia, landed at Sydney Airport today.
Dignitaries from Sichuan Airlines joined CEO of Destination New South Wales Sandra Chipchase, CEO of Sydney Airport Kerrie Mather, and NSW Minister Victor Dominello, for the airline’s inaugural Chengdu-Chongqing-Sydney flight, a new route which will provide visitors from Western China with direct access to New South Wales and Sydney.
Dignitaries from Sichuan Airlines joined CEO of Destination New South Wales Sandra Chipchase, CEO of Sydney Airport Kerrie Mather, and NSW Minister Victor Dominello, for the airline’s inaugural Chengdu-Chongqing-Sydney flight, a new route which will provide visitors from Western China with direct access to New South Wales and Sydney.
Sichuan Airlines is a new service for Sydney and New South Wales, which will provide two flights per week on its Airbus A330-200 aircraft and 50,000 seats annually. Sydney Airport estimates this will bring around AUD 36.5 million in visitor expenditure to the NSW economy each year.
New South Wales Minister for Citizenship and Communities, Mr Victor Dominello, welcomed the inaugural flight, saying this extra service on a key route would offer great benefits for passengers from Western China to get to Australia’s most popular tourism destination, Sydney.
“This is another vote of confidence in Sydney as the tourist destination of choice for Chinese visitors,” Mr Dominello said.
The new Sichuan Airlines service supports recent findings from the International Visitor Survey, for the year to September 2013, which shows China remain the top source market of visitors to Sydney and NSW.
NSW is Australia’s number one state for Chinese tourism, attracting 61.1 per cent of all Chinese tourists who visit the country. We also have strong cultural ties — there are over 156,000 Chinese-born people who call NSW home.
“China now ranks as the largest international contributor of visitor nights and expenditure in NSW. For the year ending September 2013, a 13.8 per cent increase saw 413,000 visitors to NSW from China, which contributed AUD 1.38 billion to the State’s economy,” Mr Dominello said.
New South Wales Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Mr George Souris, said the new Sichuan Airlines service linking Chengdu, Chongqing and Sydney will generate new tourism and business opportunities for NSW.
“Western China is one of the most exciting growth markets in China for NSW tourism and Sichuan Airlines’ decision to increase flights to Sydney will support this growth.
“Strong growth in Chinese visitors to NSW is proof the NSW Government’s China Tourism Strategy to increase visitor numbers from China is working. The strategy has been funded by the NSW Government to the tune of AUD 15 million over the next four years,” Mr Souris said.
