OPINION: Oracle is making some progress towards its Monetization Cloud objectives by continuing to invest into agile monetization platform capability. The Oracle Monetization Cloud (OMC) is a simplified, single-tenant version of BRM with a UX facelift. At a recent (APR’17) MGI Monetization Summit, two Oracle customers presented successful BRM case studies. However, the OMC/BRM momentum is lagging in pace and substance. A transformation of BRM into a cloud-native agile monetization solution is now less likely. Expectations of BRM/OMC receiving a share of the new, rapidly growing agile billing opportunities have yet to materialize. Growth is minimal; time and cost to implement are challenging.

USE CASE: Simple subscription within existing Oracle accounts and organizations looking to gain early-adopter status. BRM customers satisfied with their combination of price and functionality should monitor OMC’s progress. Enterprises with moderate to sophisticated requirements now seeking an agile solution should look elsewhere.
