Key Findings & Highlights Amdocs has an unusual profile: the company is well-known for its software products but actually derives only (a NelsonHall estimated) 3% of its revenues from software products (license and maintenance), and 97% from IT services. In the past five years, it has focused on multi-year IT outsourcing (ITO) contracts (mostly application outsourcing contracts), under run-build-run and build-run models. Amdocs Testing Services (ATS) has been part of SI&O since 2014. ATS provides testing services to Amdocs’ traditional client base as part of Amdocs’ strategy to expand its software and IT service portfolio and activities. More than two years ago, Amdocs Testing Services expanded its testing capabilities to include non-Amdocs product testing services, e.g. mobile apps and websites. Currently 50% of ATS’ revenues are related to nonAmdocs products and applications. ATS goes to market both directly for standalone testing contracts and also together with Managed Services and Consulting. A major initiative for ATS over the past two years has been the creation of its Amdocs BEAT platform (see Tools and IPs section). ATS has a headcount of 3.4k; this includes career testers engaged in testing Amdocs’ software products. It is growing its ATS headcount in India as an offshore center.
