Redmond, WA and Troy, MI - January 28, 2009 - ArtinSoft Corporation and Syntel, Inc. today announced a new partnership agreement to provide cost-effective software migration solutions for customers in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.

Syntel, a global information technology services and Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) firm, has a dedicated Migration Center of Excellence continually scanning the marketplace for best-in-class tools. Syntel's migration specialists identified ArtinSoft as a potential partner while researching a comprehensive, non-disruptive tool to help customers move away from unsupported platforms and take advantage of newer, more robust technologies.

ArtinSoft is a world leader in automated software migration. Their migration tools, VB upgrade companion tool, ASP upgrade companion tool and JAVA language conversion assistant reduce development, maintenance and deployment costs while preserving capital investments.

"Platform migrations for technologies that are scheduled to be sunsetted, such as Visual Basic 6, are critical initiatives for corporations,'' said Kundana Lal, Syntel's Head of Research & Development and Migration Center of Excellence. "These projects require best-in-class tools and methodologies to succeed, and we are pleased to be able to integrate the power of ArtinSoft's tools in our solutions for customers.''
