CSC In $62 Million IT Services Deal With U.K. Water Company

CSC will help adapt SAP's ERP software for utility Anglian Water.
Computer Sciences Corp. has secured a $62 million contract to provide a range of IT services to Anglian Water, England's largest water company. The five-year deal extends CSC's existing contract with Anglian Water through 2010.

Among other things, CSC will help Anglian Water develop and manage applications that underlie the company's billing, operations management, and geographic information systems.
