Andersen Consulting has won a five-year outsourcing deal with Texas Instruments, worth a total of $200 million. The consultancy is charged with migrating financial and manufacturing systems at TI's semiconductor group from mainframe to client/server platforms. It will develop new systems and then maintain them and train staff.
About 250 TI staff will relocate to Andersen. The new systems will be based on SAP's R/3 application, Oracle Data Warehouse, Lotus Notes and Saros' Mezzanine document processing technology. Andersen has been working with TI on strategic consultancy for this migration for several years.
