ST. LOUIS -- Amdocs (DOX), the leading provider of customer experience systems and services, today announced it has been selected by AT&T, the leader in the connected car, for the AT&T Drive Studio, a new center to spur the development of connected-car services and applications. AT&T announced its connected car initiative Jan. 6 at the 2014 Developer Summit alongside the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Expanding its longstanding AT&T relationship into the emerging connected car market, Amdocs also said it will enable AT&T to enhance its offering by supporting innovative business models with its auto industry partners. The solution will provide charging, billing and partner relationship management integrated with AT&T's existing capabilities.

These unique capabilities will enable AT&T to split the connectivity charges for separate services occurring in the same car, so that consumer apps – such as navigation and entertainment – can be billed to consumers, while connectivity for car diagnostics, vehicle telematics and safety services may be included in an automaker's subscription charge. This split-billing capability also opens up a host of promotional opportunities for auto OEMs, app and content providers and others in the connected car eco-system – facilitating, for example, offers for a free year of internet music service.

Amdocs Ltd. (NYSE: DOX)

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
