PLDT-Smart taps Amdocs for cloud migration project

PLDT and its wireless arm Smart selected technology solutions firm Amdocs to accelerate their cloud modernization on Amazon Web Services (AWS). 

In this multi-year project, Amdocs will migrate select business-critical systems and applications to AWS. Amdocs will provide cloud strategy, planning consultancy, and cloud security and operations services, using its new artificial intelligence (AI)-driven cloud operations platform.

Hosted on AWS, the platform will help PLDT and Smart optimize and scale infrastructure performance and resources as needed. This approach to cloud adoption and management is designed to bring PLDT and Smart increased operational resilience, leading to business agility and innovation, and continuity of services.

In addition to benefiting from the elasticity, agility, automation, and performance of the AWS cloud, the agreement between Amdocs and PLDT will also use AWS’s breadth and depth of cloud services to build PLDT and Smart’s applications and manage their infrastructure.

“Our collaboration with Amdocs for cloud migration and modernization on AWS aims to enable us to digitally connect and empower Filipinos, digitalizing the country and creating a brighter future,” Joseph Ian G. Gendrano, CTO at PLDT and Smart said.

“By leveraging Amdocs’ technology modernization and AI capabilities, we reinforce our commitment to enhancing and empowering the digital lifestyles of Filipinos.”

Anthony Goonetilleke, group president of technology and head of strategy at Amdocs, said: “We’re thrilled to work with PLDT and Smart as they adopt our latest, AI-enhanced cloud management platform on AWS to deliver seamless experiences to Filipinos across the country,” said Goonetilleke.  

“We are thrilled to work with Amdocs on empowering PLDT and Smart to more easily modernize their infrastructure with the AWS cloud to deliver a differentiated customer experience while freeing up resources to refocus on innovation,” Conor McNamara, managing director for Asean at AWS, said.
