EDS shuffles organization, execs
Electronic Data Systems Corp. of Plano, Texas, has realigned its largest business units and promoted key executives.
Effective April 15, the company will combine elements of its Information Solutions, E Solutions and Business Process Management lines of business into two new organizations: Operations Solutions and Solutions Consulting.
Operations Solutions will integrate the company's traditional, IT outsourcing operations with its business process outsourcing capability. EDS' government business will fall under this unit. Solutions Consulting will combine EDS' E Solutions implementation consulting capability with its applications services business.
The new Solutions Consulting organization, with 40,000 professionals and revenue in excess of $7 billion, will have greater resources than most of the Big Five consulting firms that have dominated the market, EDS said.
Doug Frederick, president of Information Solutions, has been named executive vice president and sector executive for Operations Solutions. Paulett Eberhart, president of Information Solutions U.S., has been named president of Solutions Consulting. Both Frederick and Eberhart will report directly to Dick Brown, chairman and chief executive officer.
