Infosys, a global leader in consulting and technology, has received the
Microsoft Platform Modernization award for sales achievement for its Legacy
Modernization solution, which helps customers migrate to Microsoft platforms.

The award reinforces the longstanding alliance between Infosys and Microsoft
in developing best-in-class solutions. Many companies look to migrate their
applications to more flexible and scalable Microsoft solutions such as
Microsoft Windows Server and Microsoft SQL Server because of the high cost and
inflexibility of legacy mainframe systems. The Infosys Legacy Modernization
solution helps ease the transition and provides various modernization
techniques that lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and help fuel business
growth.

"We are pleased to present the Microsoft Platform Modernization sales
achievement award to Infosys for 2012," said Bob Ellsworth, Microsoft
Worldwide Director of Platform Modernization."Infosys' ability to effectively
deliver numerous modernization projects moving legacy systems to Windows
Server and SQL is enabling our joint customers to reach their TCO and agility
goals."

Infosys and Microsoft continue to partner on highly successful Platform
Modernization projects for a variety of large, global clients. With more than
50 solutions and frameworks on the Microsoft platform, Infosys has more than
8,000 consultants trained on Microsoft technologies.

"By working with Microsoft to migrate and modernize legacy systems, Infosys
helps clients around the world run their businesses more cost-effectively and
efficiently," says Brad Sommer, Associate Vice president and Global Head of
the Microsoft alliance at Infosys. "This award reflects how our alliance with
Microsoft continues to grow."
