functionality and their ability to meet our future requirements. In the
end, we decided that Open Solutions' DNA was best positioned to deliver
the features and scalability we needed. As a long-time Open Solutions
client, we were also familiar with the high level of support that Open
Solutions provides," said Mark Tracy, Senior Vice President at Cambridge
Open Solutions' DNA™ is the first major platform created around the
person, not the transaction, enabling community-based financial
nstitutions to know more about their customer relationships so they can
anticipate and serve customer needs. It is also the first platform
designed to serve financial institutions globally with a single code
line, while providing the flexibility to be tailored to the diverse
market needs of banks, credit unions and other financial services
organizations operating anywhere in the world. And DNA is designed to
easily integrate new capabilities, making it the only platform that
allows its user community to collaborate and share technology - using
Open Solutions' DNAcreator™ toolset and the DNAappstore™ - to reduce
costs and deploy innovative solutions more quickly.

radically different platform that represents the future of enterprise
core technology," said Open Solutions Chairman and CEO Louis Hernandez,
Jr. "Cambridge Savings is a strong and forward-looking bank, and I am
proud they have chosen Open Solutions and DNA over the competition to
grow their retail and commercial customer relationships. What makes DNA
