The transfer will be implemented in the form of a business transfer, through which the 15 employees of Itella ICT Services' SAP Customer Competence Center will join the payroll of Accenture.
– We were looking for a strong partner able to serve Itella’s business on an international scale. In future, we will be able to make SAP expertise more accessible for all our companies in all Itella countries, comments Tomi Pienimäki, CIO, on the reasons for the outsourcing decision.
