ETI Wins 2006 Microsoft(R) Partner Program Award for Customer Experience; ETI Named Award Winner for Facilitating Procurement of $95 Billion in Goods and Services for U.S. Department of Defense

ETI (Evolutionary Technologies International, Inc.), a global provider of data integration solutions, was honored for providing outstanding customer service at the prestigious 2006 Microsoft Partner Program Awards. ETI Solution(R) helped make the United States Department of Defense (DoD) more efficient in managing procurements totaling close to $95 billion using the Microsoft .NET Standard.

The Awards showcase a variety of solution and product competencies with more than 2,400 entries submitted from partners across the globe. ETI is one of ten companies recognized by Microsoft for the Customer Experience Award, which is reserved for Microsoft partners that have demonstrated an understanding of their customers' needs, and honors partners' ingenuity in developing unique and relevant approaches to customer outreach.

The DoD application, known as Procurement Desktop Defense (PD2), is one of the largest service-oriented architecture (SOA) deployments in the world and is used for buying everything from office supplies to military battlefield equipment. ETI leveraging its flagship product -- ETI Solution V5 -- generated high performance connectors used to tie together hundreds of PD2 related legacy databases with a current user base of 25,000. Eventually the program will support close to 50,000 users and be deployed to 350 military facilities around the world.

ETI's mission to deliver the technology that helped get America's warfighters what they need, when they need it, faster than ever, met the challenge presented by DoD. According to project assessments, the DoD Standard Procurement System (SPS) experienced a 50 percent reduction in development time, at a cost savings of approximately $2 million over a 21-month period.

"ETI is committed to providing our customers with elegant solutions that significantly reduce the time and cost associated with data integration," said ETI President and CEO Ron Baker. "Our partnership with Microsoft and the success we've seen with DoD underscores our ability to tackle the most complex data integration projects in the world."

"Each year, Microsoft has the distinct pleasure of recognizing Registered, Certified and Gold Certified partners that demonstrate an impressive level of creativity in using technology to deliver excellence to their customers," said Pradeep Rathinam, GM of US ISV Partner Group at Microsoft. "The finalists and award winners have exceeded expectations in delivering outstanding customer service and optimization of Microsoft technologies."

The winners were honored Wednesday, July 12 at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2006, Microsoft's premier annual partner event, taking place July 11 through July 13, 2006, in Boston.
