Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from Computer Sciences Corporation

    EL SEGUNDO, Calif., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Computer Sciences Corporation
 (NYSE:   CSC) today announced its certification as a SAP Application Hosting
 Service Provider partner for the chemical industry, and is approaching this
 status in other process industries.  Coupled with previously announced
 certifications for the aerospace & defense industry and the federal
 government, these latest accomplishments give CSC broad vertical industry
 coverage for global delivery of the mySAP(TM).com hosted solution and
 demonstrate CSC's commitment to the ASP marketplace.
     "CSC continues to provide outstanding service to our clients, from
 implementation through outsourcing of SAP solutions," said Tom Melchiore, vice
 president, SAPHosting, SAP America.  "Those capabilities are why we've
 recently named CSC a SAPHosting partner in the federal, aerospace & defense,
 and chemical industries.  Their mix of client partnering, technology and
 business process expertise, and deep SAP skills make them an excellent
 partner."
     The CSC Application Hosting offering is well suited to the needs of
 mid-market entities (i.e., those with revenues of $200 million to $2.5 billion
 annually) and the business units of larger organizations with similar revenue
 profiles.  The hosted solution offers maximum speed, scalability and
 flexibility with minimal up-front investment and lower total cost of ownership
 compared with custom-built application solutions.
     "We see the mySAP.com hosted solution as an important addition to our
 solution set and an excellent complement to CSC's core competencies," said
 Chris Colen, vice president of Strategic Initiatives for CSC's Chemical Group.
 "There are a lot of companies out there offering hosted solutions, but none of
 them have 40 years of experience designing and running mission-critical
 systems for the world's biggest and most innovative companies.  We have a
 global network of highly reliable data centers which will support this
 offering, and we have the technical and business expertise to make this
 solution a viable, sustainable option for our clients."
     Computer Sciences Corporation, one of the world's leading consulting and
 information technology (IT) services firms, helps clients in industry and
 government achieve strategic and operational results through the use of
 technology.  The company's success is based on its culture of working
 collaboratively with clients to develop innovative technology strategies and
 solutions that address specific business challenges.

 technology since 1959, CSC combines the newest technologies with its
 capabilities in consulting, systems design and integration, IT and business
 process outsourcing, applications software, and Web and application hosting to
 meet the individual needs of global corporations and organizations.  With more
