Carlsberg has outsourced part of its IT operations to Accenture for three years as it attempts to reduce costs and standardise business processes.
Accenture will take responsibility for management consulting and systems integration, as well as application development and maintenance.
"The focus within Carlsberg on reducing operational costs and increasing business process standardisation across our business requires a flexible IT organisation with a global presence," said Kenneth Egelund Schmidt, vice-president at Carlsberg IT.
Accenture will help Carlsberg IT carry out SAP and Microsoft software implementations in Europe over the next three to five years to replace old legacy systems.
Henrik Rasmussen, a senior executive in Accenture's Consumer Goods & Services practice, said, "The standardisation of business processes and applications across functions and borders will help to create simplified and streamlined operations, enabling Carlsberg to respond quickly and effectively to the changing business environment."
