Trusted voices can sometimes be difficult to find in any industry. Amid the noise and chatter online it is useful to revert to industry participants who have been around for some while and have proven time and again that their opinions and predictions carry weight.
Of course, at Amdocs we believe in what we do but we cannot work in a vacuum, so it is essential to do regular external temperature-checking and benchmarking. We enjoy the output as well as the inevitable challenges that result.
The analyst community plays an essential role in this respect. The telecommunications, media and technology sectors are complex as well as continually and rapidly evolving. So it is no surprise that analysts don’t always agree with each other and that their methodologies vary. They tend to slice, dice and review the market somewhat differently. For example, some combine charging and billing in their market reviews, while others combine charging and policy. Given these differences in starting points, it is very well worth paying attention where there is consistency of results.
Recently published reports related to industry monetization, and encompassing Amdocs monetization, show significant commonality in results. These reflect Amdocs’ investments in and commitment to successful solution advancements and engagement with customers and partners. We believe there is relevancy for existing and potential customers, partners and the wider telecommunications and media community in summarizing and consolidating them here into a cohesive set of related results.
