IT services provider Accenture announced its deal with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide for offering information technology (IT) outsourcing services.
The new 5-year IT outsourcing deal with Starwood Hotels will be an extension of the original agreement that began in 2009, said Accenture.
Accenture will continue to provide IT services across the application, infrastructure, and security domains. The IT outsourcing company will also assist Starwood’s transition to a new global operating model that will provide more agility and flexibility in response to changing technology and digital landscape.
“Starwood is pleased to extend its collaboration with Accenture leveraging their deep understanding of our business and technology environment and their breadth of IT capabilities,” said Martha Poulter, CIO of Starwood Hotels & Resorts.
Accenture claims that it has already enhanced Starwood’s technology capabilities and services and achieved significant cost savings and cost certainty. As per the new deal, Accenture will deliver the services from Starwood’s locations and Accenture’s Global Delivery Network.
