MillerCoors seeks $100M in damages from IT contractor

MillerCoors is suing IT services firm HCL in federal court over what began as an approximately $53 million software deployment.

The work was for a new SAP system for integrating and sharing data across the enterprise, including accounting, sales, production, warehouse operations, distribution, security and human resources data. It required customization to address particular business needs.

HCL was hired to do the work, but the lawsuit alleges that the contractor failed to meet project deadlines and staff the project with a sufficient number of people.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Illinois, names HCL Technologies and its subsidiary, HCL America. It seeks “compensatory damages in an amount to be determined at trial in excess of $100,000,000.” The lawsuit was filed March 13.
