DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC), the world’s leading independent, end-to-end IT services company, and Brexit Partners, a specialist Brexit strategy advisory ﬁrm, today announced a collaboration to help organisations understand and respond to the challenges and opportunities associated with various Brexit scenarios.
The goal of the collaboration is to enable clients to mitigate any negative impacts and where possible, disrupt the market, innovate and create competitive advantage.
The two organisations are developing bespoke programmes and methodologies, underpinned by cutting edge transformational technologies, to enable clients to address Brexit as efﬁciently as possible.
Brexit Partners comprises experts spanning business transformation, corporate ﬁnance, legal, regulatory, risk management, public policy, marketing and human resources, while DXC Technology uses the combination of the company’s technology independence, global talent and extensive partner alliance to deliver powerful, next-generation IT services and solutions.
Together, the two companies will provide end-to-end Brexit impact analysis, scenario planning, Brexit strategy and execution, with a strong focus on supporting clients in four key industries: financial services, retail, manufacturing and water utilities.
Dr Ray Nulty, managing director for Brexit Partners, said: “The Brexit deadline is looming and organisations remain ill-prepared or have yet to prepare fully for Brexit. With little progress in the negotiations over the summer months, the probability of a ‘no deal’ is fast becoming a reality. Under a ‘no deal’ scenario there will be no transition period and no agreement on how hitherto economic, business, social, security and other arrangements will be managed going forward.
“With less than seven months to go, the window for preparation is closing and organisations need to fully understand the implications of the UK leaving the EU and to establish practical contingency plans that are not just a paper exercise. It’s not just about internal processes and exposure to sterling — organisations also need to think about the impact on public infrastructure and their customers, supply chains, technology and capital markets. Firms need to approach Brexit as a transformational change and use it as an opportunity to future-proof their organisations.
“Partnering with DXC Technology, and leveraging their powerful next-generation technology services and solutions, gives us the unique ability to help organisations with the full scope of their Brexit challenges. We are excited to be partnering with DXC at this crucial stage in the Brexit process.”
Maruf Majed, senior vice president and regional general manager for DXC UK, Ireland, Israel, Middle East and Africa, said: “The challenge Brexit presents for our customers, and for all of us, is unprecedented but brings with it an opportunity for change and growth. Working with Brexit Partners enables us to present a unique service to support our clients, ensuring that they are fully prepared for the transition, emerging poised and able to capitalise on a new business world.”
