Dublin -- Kainos, a leading IT consulting company, today announced that
it has extended its Microsoft Gold Partnership with the addition of the
Microsoft competency for Custom Development Solutions. Kainos is one of
only a handful of companies in Ireland to have successfully achieved
the Custom Development Solutions competency.

Gold Certified Partners represent the highest level of competence and
expertise with Microsoft technologies and have the closest working
relationship with Microsoft. Kainos achieved Gold Certification in
2005, in recognition of its technical depth, business expertise and
specialisation in three Microsoft Solution Competencies.

Solution Competencies are the cornerstone of Microsoft's Partner
Program. They allow partners to clearly define their areas of expertise
in specific solutions that reflect their business model. Kainos now
holds Solution Competencies for Information Worker, ISV/Software
Solutions, Network Infrastructure and Custom Development Solutions.

The Custom Development Solutions Competency is designed for partners
providing custom-built solutions for clients that require value-added
capabilities to optimise business opportunities. Kainos was required to
undergo rigorous review processes, independent tests and customer
references, in order to achieve this competency.

"One of the benefits of the Microsoft Gold Partnership is that our
customers instantly know our projects are developed by people who are
trained to the highest standards in the latest Microsoft technologies,"
said Brendan Mooney, Managing Director at Kainos. "It's a win-win
partnership that ultimately enables us to better meet our customers'
needs, offering the necessary resources and knowledge required to
deliver the highest-quality IT solutions that drive tremendous
bottom-line results," he said.

Colin Cassidy, Partner Development Manager, Microsoft Ireland
commented, "Kainos' Gold Partner certification along with their
Solution Competencies puts them in an elite category - they are one of
only a handful of Irish companies to have achieved this partnership
status and this certainly gives them a competitive edge. We look
forward to continuing to strengthen and grow our partnership with
Kainos throughout the year and moving forward."
