Shell has assembled a team to define standards for its outsourcing strategy.
Shell's IT strategy team comprises 100 IT architects. The outsourcing strategy, called One IT, started in July.
The team of enterprise architects will work with these suppliers and with application services outsourcers IBM, Accenture, Logica and Wipro.
Shell group IT architect Johan Krebbers said the internal team will allow the company to work with its outsourcers to roll out IT standards across the company.
