Service providers around the world are moving to the cloud. While progress varies, for all players, it’s a journey that will take years. At Amdocs, we’re focused on providing cloud solutions and practices to accelerate that pace. In this context, in 2018, Amdocs announced a strategic partnership with AWS, the world’s leading public cloud provider. Since then, we have worked closely with them to help service providers achieve the goal of making the cloud a faster reality.
Even before this partnership, Amdocs was well aware that the future of the communications and media sectors depended on moving the industry to the cloud, and that service providers needed trusted partners with deep migration expertise to get them there. By partnering with AWS, we have been able to prove this value with a number of joint customer wins and projects including the industry’s very first BSS cloud migration.
As a certified partner within the AWS Migration Competency program, we are also being officially recognized for our migration expertise, skills, customer project success and operational excellence in areas that include migration architecture, security, reliability and cost optimization. More importantly, it certifies that AWS recommends Amdocs as a trusted cloud migration partner. Amdocs is one of a small and exclusive club who can assert that they have this competency. In addition, by virtue of this partnership, we are strongly positioned to help service providers generate new services, identify and seize competitive opportunities and deliver enhanced customer experiences along their cloud journey. It also cements our status as the trusted partner of choice for service providers as they modernize their systems and get their businesses ready for the future.
Amdocs has been conducting transformations and migrations for 30 years. Our workforce includes thousands of certified cloud experts, while our products, such as our CES20 BSS-OSS suite, are cloud-native. We have field-tested modernization tools and best practices for cloud, and we have a proven track record delivering managed services over public, hybrid and private clouds. Importantly, we also have strategic cloud partnerships to support successful migrations across the globe.
Finally, earlier this year, we announced a complete set of systems integration practices and solutions to take the industry to the cloud. As the only company that combines the capabilities of systems integrator and independent software vendor, this further proves that our unique set of capabilities provide the differentiating edge that will assist the industry’s migration to the cloud, and prepare for the many challenges the future holds.
