Dear Jim:

This letter will confirm our agreement that I will serve as a senior advisor to
you in your role as President and CEO of Cambridge Technology Partners (CTP). My
services will include advising on domestic and international strategy and
business opportunities for a period of twelve months, beginning January 1, 1996.

For these services, Cambridge Technology Partners shall pay a total fee in the
amount of $200,000, payable to RRE Advisors, LLC (RRE), 25 percent of which is
payable in the first month of each quarter, and will reimburse RRE for any
reasonable related expenses. Per your request, we will provide an invoice for
services thirty days before the payment is due. All non-public information that
is provided to me by you, except as required by law, will be kept strictly

After January 1, 1997, it is expected that this agreement will continue in
effect unless cancelled within 90 days notice by either party. Should such
cancellation become effective, CTP shall pay to RRE any pro rata amount of the
annual fee payable and reimburse for any open expenses.

Please indicate your acceptance of the terms of this letter by signing and
returning the enclosed copy of this letter.
