Accenture Opens Delivery Center in National Capital Region of Delhi

The new facility in Gurgaon is Accenture’s 10th delivery center in India

NEW DELHI; Sept. 4, 2006 – Accenture has launched a delivery center in Gurgaon, in the National Capital Region of Delhi, India, for application and infrastructure outsourcing and systems integration services. The facility is Accenture’s 10th delivery center in India, and represents further expansion of the company’s Global Delivery Network.

The new delivery center will provide these services across a full range of technology capabilities including in the areas of JAVA/J2EE, SAP, Microsoft.Net, Mainframes and testing.

Accenture will be recruiting among the region’s substantial population of well-educated and talented technology graduates and professionals for the new center, which will have capacity for 1,100 seats. In addition, the company will offer opportunities for experienced Accenture professionals across levels and technology specialties to relocate to Gurgaon.

The Accenture delivery center in Gurgaon is Accenture’s sixth city presence in India, joining others in Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune, which together serve more than 200 Accenture clients. Through its Global Delivery Network, Accenture has grown its headcount in India significantly over the past three years, from fewer than 4,000 in 2003 to more than 19,000 as of May 2006.

“This new facility in Gurgaon will support our growth plans in India, which is a key node in Accenture’s Global Delivery Network,” said Keith Haviland, managing director, Accenture Delivery Center for Technology. “Our employees here will work seamlessly with their colleagues around the world, sharing the same training, methodology, tools and metrics to ensure consistent, high-quality services for our clients.”

Accenture’s Global Delivery Network comprises more than 47,000 people, including local Accenture professionals working at client sites around the world, and more than 40 delivery centers in over 30 countries throughout Asia, Europe and the Americas.

“Launching a facility in Gurgaon is being driven by two factors,” said Sandeep Arora, lead executive, Accenture Delivery Center for Technology in India. “First, we continue to see very strong client demand for Accenture’s services from India. Second, we believe we can fulfil that demand with the large pool of high-quality technical and professional talent in the city.”
