Abstract: 

How do you implement SRE in a big managed services organization (~5,500 employees), running operations for fifty big Telecommunications & Media companies?

Amdocs managed services organization has implemented SRE to revolutionize the way we run operation by treating operations as a software challenge with inner sourcing and reuse as key principles, in order to improve customer experience and operations efficiency.

To make the change we established a program that focused on three dimensions: people—upskilled the teams and implementing blameless postmortem, processes—changed the day to day to include development of automations in agile, and technology—introduced new tools and technologies.
