EDS' new Strategy
Top-Consultant.com reports: "Electronic Data Systems is repositioning itself to compete with industry rivals and will be focusing on offering business transformation services, top company executives told analysts and reporters last Tuesday at the company's Plano headquarters. Chairman and chief executive Michael H. Jordan said that in a 'fundamental shift' in EDS' approach, the company will help clients 'transform' their businesses, in part by providing more consulting services"

If EDS can pull this off it'll succeed in upsetting the applecart of IBM GS and Accenture. What needs to be seen is how will EDS provide more consulting services? Inorganic growth (e.g. IBM GS took over PwC)? hmm...interesting times ahead ;-)
