Accenture (NYSE: ACN) and GE Aviation, an operating unit of GE (NYSE: GE), have agreed to form a new joint venture company called Taleris™. Taleris will provide airlines and cargo carriers around the world intelligent operations services focused on improving efficiency by leveraging aircraft performance data, prognostics, recovery and planning optimization solutions that will include assets and capabilities from both Accenture and GE.
