Edgewater and FAST Partner to Provide Process Centric Policy Administration
for Insurance Providers

WAKEFIELD, Mass., April 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Edgewater Technology,
Inc. (Nasdaq:EDGW), a leading consulting firm that brings its clients a blend
of classic and product-based consulting services, is announcing a partnership
with FAST to deliver next generation solutions to the insurance industry.

"Edgewater and FAST are driving enterprise software development and deployment
to a new level of 'mobile-like' modularization," said Shirley Singleton,
Edgewater's chairman, president and CEO. "By moving from monolithic systems
development and deployment to loosely coupled process-driven modules,
insurance companies are better positioned to manage risk as they look to
replace and refresh legacy policy administration systems either piecemeal or
as a whole."

Edgewater's process-centric approach to requirements and design aligns
directly with FAST's development and delivery model. Coupling FAST's
process-driven modules with Edgewater's growing cloud-based services creates a
shared vision of the future for Insurance software development and rollout.
