This IDC study provides an analysis of the 2019-2023 automated software quality market forecast. It discusses IDC's ASQ assessment for a market that continued with single-digit growth of 3.1% to $2.7 billion in 2018 compared with growth of 4.5% to $2.6 billion in 2017. 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, although at lower levels typically compared with last year because of a volatile economy. Others experienced losses largely because of evolving product releases, acquisition transition challenges, shifts to cloud delivery models, and some encroachment by open source tools. Midsize innovative vendors in emerging technology areas like mobile, software quality analysis and measurement (SQAM), and cloud testing contributed to enable improved ASQ growth in 2018. We are beginning to observe the impact also of OSS usage and integration by vendors (such as Selenium and Cucumber). We also saw acquisitions during and moving into 2018. Most recently, Perforce acquired both Perfecto Mobile in 4Q18 (see Perforce Acquires Perfecto Mobile Seeking to Perfect Its Mobile and Digital Quality Strategy for DevOps, IDC #lcUS44391818, October 2018) and Rogue Wave in 1Q19, augmenting its DevOps play with mobile testing and digital quality in the case of Perfecto and with code analytics/security via Klocwork and other aspects of the acquisition. Broadcom acquired CA in 2018, and CA had previously expanded its portfolio via acquisition of BlazeMeter and also Grid Tools (2Q15) to augment the company's prior ITKO acquisition (2011). In the longer term, the ASQ market is slated for an overall trajectory of growth. IDC expects ongoing acquisitions in the 2019-2021 time frame as enterprise providers seek to broaden their ASQ portfolios."In a global economy that remained somewhat volatile in 2018 and with ongoing, dramatically increased complexity for multimodal software development and deployment and service virtualization with constrained resources, we saw ongoing investment in and demand for ASQ solutions and meaningful growth that will drive the ASQ forecast moving into 2023. Market and product evolution will occur as larger vendors deliver more complete agile DevOps, quality and life-cycle management solutions, and consolidation continues," says Melinda Ballou, program director for IDC's Agile Application Life-Cycle Management, Quality, and Portfolio Strategies at IDC. "As a result of 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 analyses and security leverage, and agile and mobile and ERP and business solutions; these areas are dominated by small and medium-sized companies. We expect additional acquisitions and solid ASQ growth in this space in the 2019-2023 time frame."
