Nokia and Accenture Finalize Agreement To Outsource Symbian

Monday, June 27, 2011
Nokia and Accenture have finalized an agreement for Nokia to outsource Symbian software development and support activities to Accenture.  Plans of the agreement were first announced on April 27, 2011.

Under the agreement, Accenture will provide Symbian based software development and support services to Nokia through 2016. The agreement calls for Accenture to support and further develop Nokia's Symbian platform and to become the preferred supplier to Nokia on their transition to Windows Phone.

Nokia employees located in China, Finland, India, United Kingdom and the United States are expected to transfer to Accenture at closing, where the company will seek opportunities to leverage transferring employee skills and capabilities to provide mobility software, business and operational services around the Windows Phone platform to Nokia and other ecosystem participants. Accenture will also seek to retrain and redeploy transferred employees.

Accenture will also work with Avanade, a technology service company that is majority-owned by Accenture and focuses on Microsoft technologies, to provide further services to Nokia.
