Re-Thinking HR: What Every CIO Needs to Know About Tomorrow's Workforce
Sears fired CSC one year into a 10-year contract. After that, the facts start to diverge.Sears Holdings and the Computer Sciences Corp. ended a multi-year IT-outsourcing contract dispute on Oct. 22, with few details released, except perhaps the most meaningful one: Sears is paying CSC.
"Sears and CSC have amicably settled their differences on mutually satisfactory terms, with Sears paying an undisclosed amount to CSC," said the brief statement, issued just before 10 p.m. EST.
Back in May of 2004, Sears hired CSC for a $1.6 billion 10-year IT outsourcing package. Some 11 months later, shortly after the Sears and Kmart merger, Sears wanted out of the deal.
