Intel Capital and Amdocs Collaborate to Foster Startup Innovation

Companies hold first Intel Capital Technology Day at Amdocs with startup companies from around the world

ST. LOUIS (August 03, 2010) – Intel Capital, Intel Corporation’s global investment organization, held its first Intel Capital Technology Day (ITD) at Amdocs (NYSE: DOX), the leading provider of customer experience systems. The event marks the collaboration between Intel Capital and the Amdocs Open Innovation program to foster startup innovation, and was designed to identify joint business opportunities for the Intel Capital portfolio companies with Amdocs or its customer base, which includes some of the largest service providers on the globe.

Nine Intel Capital portfolio companies from different domains such as mobile multimedia and contact center solutions, and from different countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Israel and Poland, showcased innovative technologies to Amdocs executives from around the world.

“Amdocs understands the value of innovation in the evolving communications industry and has many programs in place to drive innovation. Among these programs is Amdocs’ highly unique and comprehensive Open Innovation program which scouts for innovative technologies to introduce to its customers and integrate into its own portfolio,” said Marcos Battisti, Managing Director at Intel Capital. “By showcasing our portfolio companies to global leaders like Amdocs, we are helping them access real, global business opportunities and establish a competitive position.”

The ITD is part of an ongoing series of events where Intel Capital introduces its portfolio companies to leading international companies. Using the criteria selected by the company, Intel Capital brings portfolio companies from all over the world in for a day of insightful presentations, demonstrations and networking. It is intended to create business opportunities for small, emerging and large established technology companies.

This ITD builds on the longstanding relationship between Amdocs and Intel. Last year, the two companies unveiled the Amdocs Intel Performance Lab, which is managed by the two companies, and was established to test new technologies for processing, memory, storage, virtualization and reliability that can impact Amdocs’ architecture design and Intel’s processor and platform designs.

Amdocs Open Innovation consists of three global programs targeted to foster new ideas and collaboration between Amdocs and startup companies in the communications industry and offer Amdocs’ customers solutions which complement the Amdocs CES product and services portfolio:

  • Amdocs Engage! – A business development program promoting business opportunities between Amdocs, service providers and startup companies; 
  • Amdocs Ascend! – A startup partnership program focused on creating new solutions by combining external innovation with Amdocs products and services;
  • Amdocs Venture! – A program focused on strategic investments in carefully selected startups.
