NaviSite Supports Systems Upgrade for Aviza Technology

Global Company Selects NaviSite to Upgrade Oracle Systems for Its Global IT Infrastructure

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - NaviSite, Inc. (NASDAQ: NAVI), a leading provider of application management, internet infrastructure and hosting solutions, today announced that NaviSite was chosen to migrate and upgrade the Oracle systems at Aviza Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVZA). Aviza, a global supplier of advanced semiconductor capital equipment and process technologies, selected NaviSite's migration and integration expertise to facilitate the upgrade of its Oracle systems throughout the company's worldwide offices.

"Aviza was faced with the challenge of transitioning its current Oracle systems to accommodate the company's growing infrastructure and ensuring compatibility of the system upgrades across Aviza's global operations," said Dale Spencer, Vice President of Information Technology and Corporate Services at Aviza Technology, Inc. "NaviSite was uniquely suited to leverage our current infrastructure to support the upgrade, which we believe allowed us to expedite the project and reduce overall costs. We're looking forward to continuing our partnership with NaviSite's professional services team."

NaviSite worked with Aviza on the upgrade to R11.5.10.02 from R11.0.3 for a broad ERP footprint including General Ledger, Accounts Payable and Receivable, Purchasing, Cash Management, Order Entry, Shipping and Inventory, among other applications. In addition, Aviza incorporated new modules including Advanced Supply Chain Planning, Quality, iSupplier Portal, Mobile Supply Chain, Install Base and Depot Repair. NaviSite Professional Services streamlined the project for Aviza and completed the integration and upgrade in half the time it would have taken the company to rebuild the system internally.

"The objective of our professional services teams is to have a direct, positive impact on our customers' businesses while allowing them to focus on their internal objectives," said Nasir Cochinwala, Senior Vice President of Professional Services at NaviSite. "Aviza provided incredible support for the project at every step, by training users, having on-site involvement from employees worldwide and providing two full-time project managers. The combination of our first-class consultants and Aviza's dedicated project team truly made this a winning project."

NaviSite Professional Services helps organizations maximize their enterprise application investment, through industry domain expertise and global delivery capabilities. NaviSite has extensive expertise in implementation and hosting services for the Oracle product family, with particular emphasis in Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise, Siebel Analytics and Fusion Middleware.
