Founded: 1982
History: The company was originally spun off from the Aurec Group (from the latin Aurum, or gold), which was established in 1968 by Morris Kahn. Amdocs initially dealt only with directory services, i.e. Yellow Pages (or in Israel, the name is translated as Golden Pages). Other spin-offs from the parent company were also given similar brand names: the former cable television provider Golden Channels, an internet service provider named Golden Lines, and AIG Golden (a joint venture with the AIG insurance company).

In the early 2000s, Amdocs ventured into the financial services industry with the Dutch bank ABN AMRO, its first major non-telco customer.
