Dr. Pepper/Seven Up Inc. has awarded a five-year, $25 million outsourcing contract to Computer Sciences Corp. under which CSC will support the company's existing SAP applications.
The Plano, Texas, beverage maker is tapping CSC for production and user support as well as system maintenance and enhancement services. Under CSC's Application Value Management program, the contract is a fixed-priced arrangement rather one that charges an hourly rate.
Fifteen members of Dr. Pepper/Seven Up's IT staff will join CSC. "These arrangements are a little different in that we don't take the data center. We just take the people and the applications," says Douglas Gattuso, account manager at CSC.
