Amdocs Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators
Amdocs is a provider of customer experience software solutions and services for the world’s largest communications, entertainment and media service providers. They develop, implement and manage software and services associated with business support systems (BSS), operational support systems (OSS) and network operations. Amdocs Amdocs Service Design and Create, a new network functions virtualization/software-defined networking (NFV/SDN) solution that allows service providers to achieve service agility by enabling the design, testing and launching of new network services in weeks rather than months2 and meet the expectations of today’s customers, influenced by the pace of over-the-top (OTT) providers’ service innovation. In January 2018, Amdocs was first in the industry to be introducing a 5G-ready online charging system. This new solution enables service providers to process traffic from multiple network slices through a common online charging system, in accordance with the 5G standards guidelines1 published by 3GPPTM in December 2017. Network slicing is a key capability in 5G networks, as it allows service providers to run multiple logical networks that meet the varying performance needs of different services – from eHealth and autonomous vehicles, which demand the lowest possible latency, to less-critical but bandwidth-demanding virtual and augmented reality applications. The latest release of Amdocs’ market-leading digital monetization suite provides a centralized charging entity for the monetization of all service configurations made possible by network slicing. It includes an innovative isolation mechanism that ensures the level of activity in one network slice does not impact another. Deployed in the cloud with the OpenStack cloud framework, the solution provides the elasticity to scale on-demand in support of changing activity levels.
Amdocs Recent Developments
In February 2018, Amdocs launched its Autonomous Service Assurance solution, the industry’s first offering to accelerate a service provider’s evolution from the manual network-centric operations of today to the fully autonomous service-driven operations of the future. Autonomous Service Assurance delivers business value for current networks and services and prepares service providers for the software-defined and virtualized networks and services of tomorrow. Amdocs Autonomous Service Assurance is a first-of-its-kind solution. It designs how the service will be assured upfront at the time the service is launched. It starts assuring the service, natively, at the same instant the service is activated. It learns each and every time an event happens. And it proactively drives the network to keep the service operating to customer and service level agreement (SLA) expectations. Autonomous Service Assurance delivers advanced software products from Amdocs and its Open Network Ecosystem with a DevOps approach to automation. It incrementally transforms the assurance technology and processes of a service provider by increasing autonomy each time a service impacting event happens. This elevates the operations team from a reactive operations team to a proactive DevOps team who are actively engaged in the design and improvement of assurance and operations policies and processes.

Amdocs Risks and Challenges
Biggest threat remains Ericsson, which has eclipsed the OSS/BSS positioning of Amdocs both in terms of revenues and growth prospects because of the breadth of Ericsson's product portfolio. Additionally, Amdocs needs to better articulate its key differentiators in the subscription management applications market that has attracted plenty of competitors and intensifying pricing pressures could present new challenges.
