Accenture, Capita, IBM jump on £800m framework to make the NHS more agile as UK.gov announces further reforms

Yeah useless - something they do is right though hey? - $250 share price and billions of cash in the bank and over 500,000 employees

Infinity works had a choice - it wasn't an aggressive takeover.

Accenture sued over website redesign so bad it Hertz: Car hire biz demands $32m+ for 'defective' cyber-revamp

They are doing something right though as a wider organisation? Accenture share price has just hit a new record $180+ USD per share with a market capital of over $115bn, so unfortunately and in conclusion:

a) $32m isn't really going to make any difference (if they lose)

b) they can afford the best defence

c) this will carry on and their growth will continue

d) what they hell were Hertz doing in the past 2 years that allowed this to get to this stage? Was it a T&M or fixed fee contract? If it was fixed fee then clearly the change request route was used - all suppliers do this and in my experience Accenture aren't the worst at this - the pureplays are masters at it

e) The client complained, accenture rotated the team and the client was surprised that the incoming team didn't have the same level of client experience? Duh?
