EDS Recognized as a Leader in Global IT Infrastructure Outsourcing

    PLANO, Texas, June 14 /CNW/ -- EDS today announced it has been named a
leader in Global IT Infrastructure Outsourcing by independent analyst firm
Forrester Research.
    EDS was among the select companies invited by Forrester to participate in
its June 14, 2007 The Forrester Wave(TM) Global IT Infrastructure Outsourcing,
Q2 2007 (June 2007) report. In this evaluation, EDS was cited as a leader in
global IT infrastructure outsourcing and received top scores on its global
delivery model, client value proposition and vision, and service quality by
    The Forrester Wave(TM) Global IT Infrastructure Outsourcing, Q2 2007
report stated:

     "As befitting its long history of success in the infrastructure
      outsourcing business, EDS topped the field in the current offering
      scoring category, and the firm tied [one other vendor] for having the
      broadest market footprint. Methods for delivery and implementation have
      been forged and refined in the crucible of some of the most complex
      real-world outsourcing deals, and reference client scores rewarded this
      EDS capability."

    Forrester also cited EDS as a good fit for infrastructure service clients
who demand massive global scale and value delivery maturity and operational
control. The report stated EDS is a "go to choice for enterprise outsourcing
clients," noting the global technology services company "has perhaps the most
robust delivery engine that employs both remote management and local support"
and "the only firm that wisely targeted compliance issues as a core to its
strategy." Additionally, the report stated "EDS has a compelling vision for
infrastructure clients" and "reference clients awarded a perfect score for
their experience with EDS's implementation capability."
    "We are pleased Forrester named EDS as a leader in global IT
infrastructure outsourcing, an industry we pioneered 45 years ago," said Ray
Cline, vice president of EDS' Infrastructure Service Line. "EDS prides itself
on providing best-in-class IT services to our clients around the world that
help them drive productivity, growth and innovation, while maximizing the
security of their data."
    Forrester evaluated leading global IT infrastructure outsourcing service
providers across 31 criteria, grouped into the three key areas of current
offering, strategy and market presence. It also included additional 23-item
reference customer surveys.
