For sure other UTC parts will poach and leave.

Will Collins offer positons to DXC employees to fill the gaps in their ranks? In today's corporate America people are mere chess pieces. How solid is it that DXC has lost the contract?
The collins contract loss is false reporting, the reality is the ties been these 2 organisations is becoming stronger. I sit in the Collins business, would be interested to know what small sites within Collins are delivering desktop services and which larger sites are in transition...but I know I wont get an an answer as that's not happening.
False. P&G had a world class IT organization (GBS) before HP bought it. That's why they were the flagship account. Everything already ran like a well-oiled machine but P&G was looking at the $$ factor. Eventually they paid for it in quality of support after HP/HPE started shipping most support over to low-cost countries.
@2jhv+17crPJBR I agree services done by in house people are closer to the business needs and thats great if all your infrastructure is in a public cloud, but once you need servers, storage , backup on location then it's better to outsource to a leveraged environment. Companies know there business but don't really know all that is needed to keep a Data Center up and operational.
Makes sense from Collins to move services back in house; build up a good service centre in house with people that have ownership to the company (Belong), are motivated and care for their own customers + helping fellow staff out. If they need any additional support (temporary basis) then they can hire freelancers / contractors to help out.
Makes sense for other companies that outsource their services (regardless who they contract services to ) to gradually move departments and services back in house.
I have worked Desktop for the last 18.5 years at a Hamilton/UTC/UTAS/Collins site. It's true. They're bringing the desktop services in house. It started at the smaller sites this past summer and now the larger sites are transitioning over.
With so many contract run offs and no good sales people how are you going to get the book to bull ratio above 1 going forward Mike?
Do Accenture not have any good sales people as you'll only employ Accenture at the top?
If it is true then DXC management have themselves to blame for losing the contract.
Everything or just desktop services ?
Oh well. Good thing many other opportunities are in the pipeline. Har-har!
