Accenture also weathering storm well

Further to my recent pieces about EDS and CSC weathering the storm well because of their long term contracts and emphasis on core systems, Accenture's CEO Bill Green has added to that list saying "We have not had any cancellations of anything and we have not had any deferrals." See Reuters story.

Green also said that Accenture expects its staff numbers in India to rise by about a third over the next 12 months to c50,000. Indeed globally, Accenture would hire about 60,000 people in its financial year ending August 2008, with net staffing increasing by about 40,000 from 178,000.

So Accenture is clearly in the "Slowdown? What slowdown?" camp.
