Client: A leading U.S. manufacturer of consumer products
Objectives: Use the multi-million operational cost savings as capital to invest in its brands and core business.
Comment of Sally Herbert, EDS: “This is a business transformational project with a seven-year IT outsourcing arrangement and an SAP implementation, leveraging SAP as the underlying application-enabling transformation. The client’s IT people became employees of EDS, and my team is leading the business transformational services. We’re continuing to operate their very complex legacy applications as we migrate them to the new world. At the end of that migration and transformation, EDS will continue to operate the applications from an applications management standpoint and support the infrastructure, achieving additional cost savings and process improvements.”
