Accenture and National Australia Group Europe, a U.K.-based subsidiary of National Australia Bank that includes Clydesdale Bank and Yorkshire Bank, have signed an application development and management agreement that extends their existing contract for an additional three years to 2015.
Accenture will continue to provide application development and management services for a number of the bank’s enterprise and customer applications. The contract, which extends a similar agreement signed by the two companies in 2007, is designed to help NAGE achieve a more flexible and scalable IT function by increasing its use of Accenture’s Global Delivery Network.
“The extended agreement reflects Accenture’s role as a strategic business partner to National Australia Group Europe,” said Debbie Crosbie, CIO, National Australia Group Europe, in a statement. “Our decision to continue to partner with Accenture is based upon the strength of our relationship to date, the quality of service provided and Accenture’s ability to help us deliver responsive, flexible and efficient IT service to our customers.”
