<p>Bangalore, July 21, 2005: Infosys Technologies Ltd. and Oracle Asia Pacific today reiterated their commitment to jointly address the business needs of customers in the Hi-tech, Manufacturing and Financial Services sectors in the Asia Pacific region.</p>
<p>Commenting on the joint initiatives and relationship, Derek Williams, Executive Vice President, Oracle Asia Pacific, said, “Infosys is a strategic global partner for Oracle and we strongly value this partnership because of their rich domain understanding, expertise in building software solutions and execution excellence.”</p>
<p>“The synergies between the two companies, together with Infosys’ strong business process knowledge and Oracle’s product innovation, will result in lower operating costs and improved focus to address the business needs of our Asia Pacific and global customers,” he added.</p>
<p>Both organizations have experience helping Asia Pacific customers in the Hi-tech, Manufacturing and Financial Services sectors, especially in Japan, China and Australia, to effectively manage IT and business systems. The two companies are working together to provide a solution based on Oracle 10g technology for banks and financial institutions in Japan, as an alternative to mainframe technology. The partnership will address the business needs of global hi-tech and manufacturing companies in China through solutions based on the Oracle E-Business Suite. One such joint initiative is a solution based on Oracle E-Business Suite to address the financial and manufacturing process needs of United States-based company, RAE Systems (AMEX:RAE).

With strong local presence in China, Japan and Australia and vast experience with Oracle technologies, we are strategically placed to jointly address the business needs of our customers.”</p>
