Satyam Signs Two Major IT Contracts with FIFA

International football organization chooses global consulting and information technology services company to deliver FIFA Extranet, Intranet, and customized Event Management System with Match AG

HYDERABAD (INDIA), July 31, 2007: Satyam Computer Services, Ltd. (NYSE:SAY), a leading global consulting and information technology services company, announced today that it has signed two multimillion-dollar contracts to support FIFA and its major forthcoming events.

Thanks to the strength of its technical capabilities and flexible approach, Satyam has not only been selected to develop a customized Event Management System for one of the world’s premier sports organizations, but it has also been chosen to build an Extranet and Intranet for FIFA over the next 12 months. Satyam’s partnership will also include full, uninterrupted support for both solutions for FIFA, until the final whistle of each game.

Working primarily from FIFA’s Zurich headquarters, Satyam will provide in-country support for matches. It will also have teams work from offshore locations to enable lower costs and optimized CMM Level 5 quality.

Clearly, FIFA organizes incredibly large-scale, high-profile tournaments. In fact, we host the world’s most widely viewed sporting events, with as many as 28 billion people watching the 2006 Tournament. As such, we cannot afford even a second’s downtime, even during the huge usage spikes throughout games,”said FIFA head of information technology solutions Michael Kelly. “That is why we have chosen the reliability, flexibility, and reusability of Satyam’s applications. This is the start of a long-term relationship that will see Satyam working closely with FIFA over the next few years.”

We are delighted to have been chosen to deliver such critical applications for FIFA, and are committed to ensuring the success of managing its event logistics and Extranets/Intranet platforms,”said Dr. Keshab Panda, the senior vice president, director, and head of Satyam’s European operations.
