IT consulting and outsourcing company, Capgemini, has picked up a managed services contract with ANZ bank.
Capgemini is headquartered in France.
The deal will entail IT testing and environment management services globally. ANZ’s internal teams in Melbourne and Bangalore that are already working in this field will be transferred into Capgemini by the end of the year. About 360 staff that will make the move and be offered comparable entitlements.
Testing services provided by over 40 third-party providers will also be consolidated into the IT consultancy and outsourcing company.
According to ANZ, the partnership with Capgemini will help the bank achieve IT related goals that it cannot accomplish alone.
“As part of ANZ’s 2017 technology roadmap, we need to continue to access increasingly scarce IT skills to deliver major projects and ongoing business requirements,” ANZ CIO, Anne Weatherston, said in a statement. “Building a hybrid technology delivery model will help us achieve this by matching our internal capabilities with partnerships with best-in-class technology vendors such as Capgemini.”
The agreement is subject to contract negotiations and regulatory approval. It is part of ANZ’s IT transformation required for the banks ‘super regional strategy’.
