Covisint, an online exchange for the auto industry, added consulting company Cap Gemini Ernst & Young to its growing list of partners Thursday. Cap Gemini
will continue its existing program of strategic consulting, systems design and internal systems integration that it has worked on since Covisint launched in February 2000. But with this deal, the company becomes an official partner.
Cap Gemini consultants will work with Covisint in North America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific region and elsewhere. Some 100 professionals, based in the United Stages and in Germany, will make up the core Cap Gemini team working on the initiative. Financial details were not disclosed. Last week, Covisint said it is teaming with Deloitte Consulting to help build up the marketplace and connect participants to the marketplace.
