HP-EDS loses court ruling in £700m dispute with BSkyB

My colleague Tony Collins has been following the EDS (now HP) BSkyB court battle since the begining.

This case has been going on for five years and is related to a failed CRM system. It has cost both firms millions of pounds.

As Tony wrote earlier today the judge ruled in favour of BSkyB.

It is the first time a judge has ruled in favour of the claimant in a case of this scale. BSkyB is claiming £700m in damages.

What message does this judgement end out to suppliers?

Will there be more claims from corporates unhappy with systems or services?
