Accenture Opens Delivery Center in Monterrey, Mexico, Expanding Its Global Delivery Network


MONTERREY, Mexico; May 22, 2008 — Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has expanded its Global Delivery Network with the opening of a delivery center in Monterrey, Mexico, strengthening the systems integration and outsourcing capabilities it provides to clients in North America.

Sharing the same methodologies, tools and architectures that Accenture uses across its Global Delivery Network, professionals at the delivery center in Monterrey work with those in other Accenture delivery centers around the world to provide systems integration, application development and maintenance, testing, and technology consulting services to clients across many industries. 

The delivery center in Monterrey supports a variety of technologies and technology platforms, including JAVA/J2EE, Microsoft.Net, mainframe, SAP and Oracle.  It is Accenture’s second delivery center in Mexico, joining one in Mexico City, which opened in 2004. The delivery center in Mexico City, which is also part of Accenture’s Global Delivery Network, provides application outsourcing and systems integration services to clients globally.

With the addition of the delivery center in Monterrey, Accenture now has six delivery centers across Central and South America — with two centers each in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina — bringing the total number of delivery centers in Accenture’s Global Delivery Network to 51. 

“The ability to serve the needs of our clients using a global capability is a key feature of Accenture’s global sourcing approach,” said Keith Haviland, senior managing director, Delivery Centre Network for Technology. “We bring together the right mix of people, skills and common standards to provide our clients with price-competitive and cost-effective solutions and services.  Our global network offers the flexibility of multiple locations for the integrated delivery of services to clients.”

The Accenture Global Delivery Network comprises 76,000 professionals at more than 50 delivery centers worldwide.  By applying a systematic approach to creating and capturing proven, repeatable processes, methodologies, tools and architectures, professionals in the Accenture Global Delivery Network enable client teams to deliver customized services and solutions in less time than would be required to develop them independently.
