JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 6, 1999--

modis Incorporated, the $1 billion information technology services subsidiary of Modis Professional Services, Inc. (NYSE:MPS), announced that it has been named a MicroStrategy Platinum Certified Partner. modis Incorporated is the largest information technology services company in the United States. MicroStrategy(R) Incorporated (Nasdaq:MSTR) is a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence software. This partnership brings together the technology and expertise necessary to successfully deliver complete business intelligence (BI) and data warehousing solutions.

Business intelligence and data warehousing applications offer enormous opportunities for improving an organization's strategic information management capabilities. The modis and MicroStrategy partnership provides complete business solutions designed to allow access to the critical information that is needed to make faster and better business decisions. As a MicroStrategy-certified Systems Integration partner, modis possesses the expertise to enable customers to answer mission-critical business questions using MicroStrategy's DSS Suite(TM) product line.

"modis consultants work closely with clients to gain a clear understanding of their business processes and needs," said Sanju K. Bansal, chief operating officer of MicroStrategy Incorporated. "This business focus, along with their extensive industry knowledge and technical expertise, allows modis to leverage MicroStrategy DSS Suite to provide complete, end-to-end solutions that ensure that business objectives are met."

"The MicroStrategy product line is ideal for providing the information needed to answer business questions in a dynamic environment," said Geoff Kitson modis Chief Technologist. "The technical infrastructure is based upon a flexible platform that can accommodate new business demands and support an on-going process of evaluation and improvement."

The synergy of the modis/MicroStrategy partnership has already been illustrated by several joint projects. Recently, the modis team used MicroStrategy's DSS Suite to implement a critical data warehouse solution for Network Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:NSOL) a leading Internet firm focusing on domain name registration services with more than 5 million registrations worldwide. An enterprise-wide data warehouse was established to allow the organization to access and analyze critical business information needed to better understand, serve, and sell to their customers.

The modis team worked with Network Solutions to understand their information analysis and reporting needs, to define capacity/volume requirements, and to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the existing legacy data. The data warehouse was implemented using DSS Web and DSS Server from MicroStrategy's DSS Suite. The resulting application collects and integrates data from multiple legacy systems, providing Network Solutions with the corporate information to effectively target potential customers, improve cross-selling efforts, and provide value-added reports to business partners.

"The MicroStrategy-based data warehousing solution offers significant capabilities to improve our focus on the customer," said Tom Newell, Network Solutions' Director, Business Information Systems. "The flexibility of the MicroStrategy product set and the modis consultant's expertise with the technology, allowed the modis team to focus on our business objectives. As a result we have established a scalable solution that can easily adapt to our dynamic business demands"

"The Network Solutions project is just one example of the potential opportunities that we can offer to our clients through the modis/MicroStrategy partnership", said Alan Snyder modis Senior Vice President of National Practices. "We have used the MicroStrategy toolset to deliver value-added business solutions for numerous clients. This experience, along with our extensive industry knowledge, allows us to successfully overcome the potential obstacles associated with implementing decision support and data warehousing solutions. Our solutions are designed to meet diverse business requirements while leveraging our customer's existing technology investment."
