India, Sept. 23, 2008- CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced that it is positioned in the "leaders" quadrant of the Gartner report Magic Quadrant for Managed and Professional Network Service Providers, Worldwide. The report evaluates vendors that deliver information technology (IT) services for business communications systems on a global basis.

According to Gartner, "Vendor and customer experience weigh heavily in the leaders quadrant. Leaders have demonstrated that they have significant network management and outsourcing experience and understand the dynamics needed to deliver network-centric IT services successfully."

"As businesses expand their global reach, their networks are becoming more complex," said Richard Ricks, president of CSC's Global Outsourcing Services organization. "We believe networks have become the central vehicle our clients' employees rely on to obtain the information and applications they need to be competitive and effective. We are pleased with our placement in the leaders quadrant, which in my opinion is an indicator of the quality, in- depth, integrated network transformation and management services our clients have come to expect worldwide."

Authored by Eric Goodness, Christine Tenneson, Ted Chamberlin, Daniel O'Connell, Scott Morrison and To Chee Eng, and published Aug. 22, 2008,
the report covers vendors that deliver services worldwide in support of connectivity and communications infrastructure. To be included, a service provider has to directly provide IT management services in support of customer wide-area network (WAN) environments; develop and maintain its own remote management platform for the provisioning of various remote IT services across WAN, LAN and premises-based voice infrastructure; and have annual network IT service revenue of $250 million or more, among other criteria.
