UK tobacco firm British American Tobacco (BAT) has tapped Accenture for a five-year application co-sourcing deal aimed at producing a global, simplified and standardised applications infrastructure. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The two firms will design applications jointly for finance, supply chain, sales and marketing based mainly on SAP and Siebel software. Accenture will write the apps for global, regional and local use.

BAT and Accenture will develop systems in a joint application development centre in Spain and roll them out through Accenture's network, which includes delivery centres in the Philippines and India.
