This IDC Market Note assesses Amdocs' market positioning as a business solution provider rather than just as a software systems supplier. The amdocsONE methodology emphasizes modern IT development and delivery methods including microservices and DevOps for solution implementation.
"Unparalleled technological change is sweeping over the communications industry, the magnitude of which redefines how business is done for both comm. SPs and enterprises in multiple industries. As 5G becomes a business reality with the delivery of accelerated network speed, increased throughput capacity, and latency optimization, and as network slicing repositions comm. SPs to deliver network capabilities in a tailor-made fashion, the operations, monetization, and business management functions will equally become integrated, intelligent, and real time driven. Amdocs has the acumen, business drive, and market relationships to be a strategic force in bringing the 5G, IoT, and virtual network triumvirate of comm. SP capabilities into full realization," says Karl Whitelock, research vice president, Communications Service Provider Operations and Monetization.
