In a McKinsey interview with the Shell CIO, Alan Matula, where he outlined the four phase IT plan that was under implmentation, the approach to reducing suppliers/vendors was most noteworthy. It indicates the change in core compedencies of some of these 11 companies who would receive 56% of Shell's IT spend.

The 11 companies were divided into 3 groups;

- Foundation Suppliers - Cisco, Microsoft, Oracle, and SAP

- Infrastructure Group (Networks, end-user computing & hosting of Storage) - AT&T, HP, and T-Systems

- Application Services suppliers group - Accenture, IBM, Logica and Wipro
