AgilePath Announces SOA Contract With Partners Healthcare

Establishes Healthcare SOA Practice for Providers and Payers

NEWBURYPORT, MA--(Marketwire - August 20, 2007) - AgilePath Corporation, a leading service-oriented architecture (SOA) management and technology consulting firm, announced a new SOA contract with Partners Healthcare, its first in the healthcare industry. AgilePath will be providing SOA consulting services to Partners in support of its internal SOA initiative. This contract formalizes AgilePath's entry into the healthcare industry to provide its industry leading solutions for SOA strategy, SOA governance, enterprise architecture and SOA implementation services.

"AgilePath's SOA Governance Playbook™ methodology is an industry leading solution for assessing, designing and implementing SOA governance processes, policies and enabling technology in support of Partners' SOA strategy," stated Eric Marks, President and CEO of AgilePath Corporation. "We are pleased and excited with the opportunity to demonstrate the value of AgilePath's SOA solutions in support of this strategic relationship with Partners."

AgilePath redefined the SOA governance landscape in February 2006 with its SOA Governance Reference Model™, which established a vendor neutral framework for SOA governance based on organization and processes rather than software tools. AgilePath's SOA Governance Playbook™ methodology is the industry's leading model for establishing SOA governance capabilities, organizational models, processes and policies to support client SOA initiatives.

"Taking an SOA approach to clinical systems development and integration is a key strategic initiative for Partners," stated Steve Flammini, Chief Technology Officer of Partners IS. "Our engagement with AgilePath will enhance our ability to execute on our SOA strategy and grow our SOA program across our enterprise."
