Regarding that connection with 9/11. ,the article writer, can you please elaborate how do you relate these two?

Amdocs India[edit]

  • merge - I don't see how it is justified to have seperate article for different branches. The DVCI article should/could be merged into a section of the main article. --Shuki 19:27, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
  • merge - Yes, it should be merged. There is no point in having separate articles for separate branches of a company.

9/11 Fox news report implying some Israelis' knowledge of relevant information before the attacks[edit]

First of all, the news report doesn't provide any hard evidence. Secondly, and more importantly, any newsreport of alleged Israeli wrong-doing is not relevant to an article covering a partly Isreali owned and operated company.

Second that, this report has virtually no relevance to amdocs. Removed. wimbledon andy 16:42, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

What about this report? It's not directly related to the 9/11 thing, but these spy allegations shouldn't be completely ignored... http://www.theage.com.au/news/Breaking/Amdocs-man-grilled-in-Israel-spy-case/2005/06/01/1117305626373.html I think that at least something should be said... My two cents anyway --Sjkebab 15:09, 25 September 2006 (UTC)


Wikipedia policy requires linking to verifiable source not decide on 'hard evidence'. As such news reports linking Amdocs to Israeli intelligence are most relevant. emacsuser (talk) 15:57, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Aurec[edit]

AFAIK, Aurec is not Aurum (Gold) but the Hebrew word for Artery ("עורק"), which in Hebrew is used to describe a communication channel.

There is and there never was a company named "Aurec". Aurec was probably a brand name or maybe it was the name of the office building they were first doing business out of. The company in Israel was doing business under the name "P.S. Publishing Ltd.". They later changed the name to "Amdocs Israel Ltd." This company has no relevance to the publicly traded US (Delaware) corporation Amdocs Inc. (except they have some business relations and some of the ownership is the same).

Customer list[edit]

Not surprisingly, this shady company has removed its customer list since the Fox News report. Might as well remove the link unless someone can find the information elsewhere.— Possible single purpose account: 74.129.230.148 (talkcontribs) has made little or no other contributions outside this topic.

I have found a link to their customer list: http://www.amdocs.com/Site/About/Customers/Our+Customers.htm while doing some research with a view to contact such customers. I have been working for AMDOCS between May and August and still haven't been paid for last month of work. Looks like "shady" may be quite a mild qualification for these guys...Negusc 09:00, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

This is nonsense. There is nothing shady about the company. An extensive customer list with over 150 customers is available on the website at http://www.amdocs.com/About/Pages/Customer-List.aspx —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.43.246.250 (talk) 09:47, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

The company was called Aurec for a period of years, internally in Israel, before it changed its name to Amdocs (Israel). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.43.245.250 (talk) 09:49, 20 February 2011 (UTC) The renaming of Hebrew businesses and interests is usually justified by reference to Nazis, where in reality, it has been a common occurance to take names from host countries or communities( so-called Anglicisation in this case). AMDOCS as a trading name sounds AMerican, thus endearing to US customers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.32.226.66 (talk) 03:23, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

minus puffery[edit]

Some commercial PR talk has been removed. The list of products remains unsourced, and it would be good to see evidence that they are of any current Notability. DGG 07:51, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

OSS[edit]

It should be great to have a disambiguated link to OSS. Does it refer to "Open-source software" (it should be great), "Operational Support Systems" (most likely), or "Operations Support Squadron" (humm).

Problems[edit]

If anyone is considering working for AmDocs, first read [1]

You may also want to consider the size of the recruitment agency (the smaller they are the more difficult will be to get paid) and especially the payment terms between such agency and Amdocs. From my experience they have a 60 days payment terms which means you may be working 60 days with no pay ! That in itself may be acceptable as long as you know it in advance but - as it has happened to me - you may find that, after you end the contract, you still don't get paid and have no means of getting the money unless you are prepared to sue (not that such action is a guarantee of receiving what's owed to you but it may help...). More details ? E-mail me ! Negusc 09:10, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

I wonder if other multi-national company articles on WP also get disgruntled ex-employees with a chip on their shoulder. The URL you posted is old. We can only recommend that you find references and improve this article. --Shuki 18:15, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Contested deletion[edit]

This page is not unambiguously promotional, because it is no different then any other Wikipedia entry for a corporation and has public accessible information and is not a solicitation of product or service. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 144.160.130.92 (talk) 23:35, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
