Was it back in April that we heard Symbian development would be moved over to Accenture?That transition involving about 3000 employees were to transfer to Accenture, beginning June. Now, Nokia have announced the transaction to outsource Symbian software development is completed with the movement of 2,300 employees to Accenture.

In another post about mass reduction of Nokia staff, something I didn’t get to cover yesterday,

  • Factory closures in Romania, movement to Asia, impacting 2,200 employees.
  • Reviewing long term role of manufacturing operations in  Salo, Finland; Komarom, Hungary; and Reynosa, Mexico. This would have no impact to employees in 2011, but will in 2012 as factories would be changing the way they operate as those factories focus on market specific and sales package customisation.
  • Location and Commerce business to be concentrated in Berlin, Boston and Chicago, closing Bonn Germany and Malvern, US. Due to more automation, this is expected to impact 1,300 employees.
  • In total, 3,500

Thanks all for the tip!
