Accenture (NYSE: ACN) is opening a delivery center in Austin, Texas, to
provide software development and support as well as consulting and technology
services for the company’s health and public sector work across North America.

would bring the number of Accenture employees in Texas to more than 5,000. The
company has other Texas offices in Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio.

agencies seize transformative opportunities to improve citizen services while
adapting to budget realities. We have worked with the state of Texas for over
30 years and Austin is key to our efforts to leverage technology and software
to meet government needs.”

engineering and related business services, a welcome addition to the local
economy and community,” said Mayor Lee Leffingwell.“Austin is a growing hub
for innovation and we are glad they have chosen to expand and create new jobs
here in our city.”

service-based technology platform and software applications to enable public
agencies to upgrade or replace legacy IT systems in an integrated, flexible
manner to reduce technology and management costs and improve service delivery.
The new software products to be supported by the Austin center include the
Accenture Public Service Platform, the Accenture Benefits Management System,
the Accenture Citizen Self-Service Portal and the Accenture Public Health

most diversified group of management consulting, technology and business
process outsourcing professionals in the world.
