EDS drives consulting deal with Rolls-Royce

The e-business services provider wins a $2.1 billion information technology services contract from the British industrial giant.

    E-business services provider EDS said it won a $2.1 billion information technology services contract from British industrial giant Rolls-Royce.

    The new 12-year agreement builds on an existing business relationship originally signed with Rolls-Royce's aerospace business in 1996, the companies said in a statement. That deal was later expanded to include the company's industrial business and Indianapolis-based operations, the companies said.

    The initial phase of the new agreement will focus on enabling business integration and collaboration services, including plans to build three Web portals for sharing supply chains, design collaboration and corporate information.

    Plano, Texas-based EDS currently provides information technology services to Rolls-Royce in Britain and North America, supplying infrastructure, network, systems and applications, and end-user support.
