Partners HealthCare selects DST Global Solutions

Boston, MA - 25 August 2009

DST Global Solutions, a leading provider of business solutions and services to the global investment management industry, announced today that Partners HealthCare System, Inc., a non-profit, integrated health care system founded by Brigham and Women’s and Massachusetts General hospitals, has selected DST Global Solutions as its investment data management solution.

A primary factor in Partners’ selection of DST Global Solutions is the company's ability to deliver a wide range of data aggregation services on an ASP basis, integrated with Partners’ existing infrastructure. Data aggregation is a core component of DST Global Solutions’ middle office ASP platform. The ASP model enables DST Global Solutions’ clients to benefit from total outsourcing of technology infrastructure and system management while retaining control of their data.

“Partners’ challenge was to put in place a proven data management platform that was costeffective and that satisfied our complete participant reporting needs,” said Mike Manning, deputy treasurer for Partners HealthCare. “We were impressed with DST Global Solutions’ strength and long track record of success. We expect that this ASP solution will enable us to more efficiently and accurately report to our participants while avoiding the costs of maintaining technology infrastructure internally. We are very happy to have chosen DST Global Solutions and are looking forward to our relationship.”

DST Global Solutions’ enterprise data management solution is designed to enable clients like Partners to improve data quality and enhance their participant reporting capabilities by consolidating multiple data feeds into a central data repository.

"This is a great win for DST Global Solutions and reaffirms our continued commitment to deliver an ASP platform in order to meet the data management needs of our clients,” said Walt Laliberte, CEO of DST Global Solutions North America. “Our success is based on our ability to deliver timely solutions tailored for our clients’ unique business needs. We welcome Partners HealthCare to our client community and look forward to working closely with them on this initiative.”
