Anglo American selects Accenture for application development and management services



Accenture
announced that it has signed a multi-year agreement to provide application
development and management services to Anglo American.


Accenture will manage Anglo American’s global suite of commercial applications across
group functions and its platinum, copper, nickel, iron ore, thermal coal and
metallurgical coal commodities business.


Under the
agreement, Accenture will provide IT functional consulting and development
services to design, build and test applications in addition to ongoing
application maintenance and support.


The two
companies will collaborate to meet Anglo American‘s goals which include improving service reliability through upgraded performance
and simplifying and rationalizing the existing supplier landscape supporting
Anglo American’s application portfolio.



“Consolidating
global application development and management services will enable Anglo
American to realise IT synergies and reduce application development and
management costs. We look forward to helping Anglo American build and maintain
a high performance application suite to help its strategic programmes over the
coming years,” said Rik Vervisch, senior executive in Accenture’s mining
industry group.
