Amdocs, Microsoft Expand Collaboration to Boost Service Providers’ Journey to the Cloud

Amdocs, a provider of software and services to communications and media companies, announced the extension of its global business, technology and services collaboration with Microsoft, widening the availability of its portfolio on Microsoft Azure and the Azure for Operators (AFO) initiative.

The expanded cooperation will accelerate the communications and media industry’s journey to the cloud, enabling service providers to offer new and differentiated cloud services to drive growth, customer loyalty and value-add with fast and agile interactions, and a wide ecosystem of third-party partners.

The collaboration also will enable service providers to accelerate their move to the cloud by using Amdocs’ cloud-native BSS/OSS solutions and services and its unique delivery accountability model while benefiting from the cloud capabilities of Azure to build, manage and deploy service provider applications at scale.

This integrated platform will enable service providers to automate and virtualize their network while looking for opportunities to monetize 5G for consumers and enterprises, as well as offer their enterprise customers private and public edge solutions, such as private enterprise networks and multi-access edge computing.
