05:33 EDTHPQ, ACNAccenture, HP, Morpho consortium selected by EC to maintain EU VIS for $93M
The European Commission Directorate General for Home Affairs has awarded a consortium of Accenture (ACN), Morpho, a company in the Safran group, and HP (HPQ), a contract to maintain the European Visa Information System, or VIS. The contract is for three years with a possible one-year extension to a maximum value of approximately $93M. The project will support the exchange of visa data across border management authorities by ensuring the processing capacity of the system and the availability of high levels of search and matching capabilities required for visa applications. The VIS system went live, on schedule, in October 2011 and has since experienced increased usage by consulates in non-EU countries and external border crossing points of Schengen states.

10:14 EDTHPQHP best way to play coming PC sales outperformance, Citi says
Sales of PCs will be at least flat next year, before growing slightly in 2016 and 2017, Citigroup wrote in a note to investors today. The firm identified HP (HPQ) as the best way to play better than expected PC sales. WHAT'S NEW: Although many believe that PCs will become extinct, there are several reasons why sales of personal computers will begin growing again, Citi analyst Jim Suva contended. Sales of commercial PCs in emerging markets should increase over the long-term, as those PCs are aging, according to Suva. He estimated that commercial PCs in emerging markets account for 27% of the total PC market. Meanwhile, tablets were supposed to replace PCs, but tablet sales growth slowed to just 8% this year, indicating that tablets are becoming less of a threat to PCs, he wrote. Additionally, some believe that PC demand was inflated by a rush to replace computers running Microsoft's (MSFT) Windows XP operating system this year after the company stopped supporting XP, but Suva believe that PC demand growth in 2014 was more driven by a need to buy new computers following a lull in growth in 2012-2013 than by the XP situation. As a result, the analyst estimates that the XP phenomenon will only reduce next year's PC growth by 1%, versus the 3%+ reduction that investors fear. HP is the best way to play the PC rebound, wrote Suva, who raised his price target on the company's shares to $46 from $40 and kept a Buy rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Suva raised his price target on hard disk drive maker Western Digital (WDX) to $125 from $110 and on its competitor, Seagate (STX), to $74 from $70, as he noted that the companies obtain about 50% of their revenue from PCs. He kept Buy ratings on both names. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Hewlett-Packard gained 2.7% to $38.32, Western Digital rose 1.7% to $106.30, and Seagate climbed 1% to $63.89.

Accenture is expanding its relationship with IPsoft to help clients re-model their business processes by taking advantage of new cognitive computing capabilities. Accenture is working with IPsoft’s Amelia, a new artificial intelligence platform that makes it possible to automate and augment business processes across a broad range of functions. This can enable companies to build more efficient workforces who use cognitive “aids” to improve customer service, client service delivery, workforce productivity, and the ability to manage ever-growing amounts of data.
