WAKEFIELD, Mass., April 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Edgewater Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:EDGW), a leading consulting firm that brings its clients a blend of classic and product-based consulting services, is announcing a partnership with FAST to deliver next generation solutions to the insurance industry. "Edgewater and FAST are driving enterprise software development and deployment to a new level of 'mobile-like' modularization," said Shirley Singleton, Edgewater's chairman, president and CEO.

Coupling FAST's process-driven modules with Edgewater's growing cloud-based services creates a shared vision of the future for Insurance software development and rollout.
