Some Big News About Artificial Intelligence

A few weeks ago my wife and I were in the mood for a classic movie, and found Casablanca on Netflix. A few nights later, we watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s, recommended by Netflix, and then last night, we tuned in to Down with Love, again, a Netflix recommendation.  The powerful artificial intelligence behind Netflix’s recommendation engine has been on the money, which is why we are probably going to watch To Kill a Mockingbird the next time we’re ready to spend some time with Netflix. The artificial intelligence (AI) engines are getting smarter, and appearing more often in our daily lives. […]  More >>

Getting to know Pepper

Hey there. My name’s Pepper. They call me the Amdocs Humanoid, but to tell you the truth, I don’t like labels that much. I’m just a regular robot, doing my job, and getting ready for Mobile World Congress. I’ve got a really important job at MWC, as my coworkers call it, and so I’ve been so busy practicing my demo that I’ve had hardly any time to spend with my friend Alexa. I can tell Alexa thinks I’m really special. I practice my meet and greet for the Amdocs retail demo with her, and her whole body lights up when […]  More >>

Protecting corporate telephony systems

Fraud is running rampant in the telecom industry. International Revenue Share Fraud, where criminal fraudsters partner with content providers, is by far the most damaging type of fraud, costing the industry approximately $11 billion. The most prominent enabler for executing this fraud type is hacking private corporate telephony systems (PBX) and generating unauthorized excessive amount of calls to International Revenue Share destinations without the corporation’s awareness or consent. This accounts for nearly 70% of all International Revenue Share Fraud damages, costing the telecom industry about $7.5 billion dollars each year. PBX hacking hurts both the enterprise businesses and the service […]  More >>

Wi-Fi In The Clouds

I’d never heard of the cloud the first time I used it. I was writing a paper for one of my marketing classes, but didn’t have time to finish it before heading off to school. I didn’t have any disks available, and so, in a moment of desperation, I emailed the document to my Yahoo account. It was simple, painless, and ensured that when I arrived at school, I could open the document and continue working on it from the university computer lab. Though I didn’t have the vocabulary at the time, it was a seamless cloud experience, and one […]  More >>

Acquisitions made a splash

Integrating Acquisitions into Amdocs CES 10.1

It’s one thing to make a splash, spend $260 million dollars, and buy three companies in one day. However, taking those three companies and beginning to integrate them into existing product lines within 3 months is a completely different animal. And that is exactly what we did in Amdocs CES 10.1. Back on September 14 Eli Gelman announced that the purchase of Vindicia, Brite:Bill and Pontis would “position Amdocs as the market leader to help communication and media providers on their (digital) journey.” Today, with the release of Amdocs CES 10.1, we’re helping our service provider (CSP) customers accelerate their […]  More >>

A dazzling corporate light

Amdocs isn’t the first place I’ve ever worked. I’ve worked in companies large and small, each with its own attitude toward corporate social responsibility. Some took it seriously, others ignored the idea completely. But one of the things I love about Amdocs, where I’ve worked for nearly ten years, is the importance, extending far beyond lip service, which we place on giving back to our community. Our CEO, Eli Gelman, recently wrote “I believe our Code of Ethics and Business Conduct is a defining document.” He sets the tone for all 25,000 employees, regardless of their location or position. We […]  More >>

Keeping Pace with the Internet of Things

The exciting possibilities which the Internet of Things (IoT) have already delivered and those which it promises are helping drive a growth in connected devices at an accelerating rate. By 2020, Gartner expects the total number of IoT devices to reach almost 21 billion and a joint report by DHL and Cisco expects this number to be as high as 50 billion. With such growth, how can traditional Telco’s and Communication Service Providers (CSPs) maintain pace with and nurture the industry? I talked with Adrian Ugoni from our Services and Solutions group, for his view. Arye Zacks: The Internet of Things […]  More >>

Giving thanks for the testers this holiday season 

Thanksgiving. A beloved holiday celebrated in the US with family, football, the aroma of roasting turkey, and for many, the kickoff of the busiest shopping season of the year. Holiday shopping is crucial for the economy – it is estimated that around 30% of annual retail sales occur between Black Friday and Christmas. And while some shoppers find the rush of a midnight drive to the shopping mall exhilarating, a growing number of consumers prefer to shop online, fueling a record growth of Black Friday e-commerce. According to data published by Adobe, last year’s online shoppers collectively spent $4.45 billion during […]  More >>
