Automaker continues to collaborate with Capgemini to drive excellence in management of its IT processes
Capgemini (Paris:CAP), one of the world’s leading providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, announced today that it has been selected by General Motors Holdings, LLC (GM) for the renewal of three contracts with GM’s Global Sales, Service & Marketing; Global Purchasing and Supply Chain; and Global Business Services organizations.
Thanks to this, Capgemini will continue to serve as the automaker’s application integration management (AIM) supplier for each of these respective process areas. The combined value of the five-year agreements is more than $100 million (approximately €75 million) and is an extension of Capgemini’s ongoing work in support of GM’s Next-Generation Systems Factory Operating Model, which provides standardized processes for application management as well as developing common, integrated standards-based solutions that scale with business needs. These contracts are in addition to the renewal of two other General Motors contracts in support of their application outsourcing efforts announced earlier this year.
Under the terms of these three contracts, Capgemini will collaborate with GM’s Information Technology organization in providing services in the areas of: strategic planning, data management, systems engineering and architecture (SE&A), software engineering, program management, and verification and validation (V&V). Solid execution, innovation, and continued evolution of these services will assist GM IT’s on-going efforts to be more flexible, efficient, and effective in delivering new business capabilities.
“The AIM teams involved are a key support element in GM IT’s drive to provide the innovation and delivery excellence required by our business,” said Terry Kline, vice president, Information Technology, and chief information officer, General Motors. “Capgemini’s services are integral in helping us support GM as it designs, builds and sells the world’s best vehicles.”
“This win is testament to our collaborative relationship with GM, our success over the past four years in support of their IT initiatives, and the trust they’ve placed in Capgemini as a strategic partner,” said Marc Martinez, General Motors global account executive, Capgemini.
