PALO ALTO, Calif., January 08, 2008 - TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced that it has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner Inc.'s December 2007 "Magic Quadrant for Business Process Management Suites, 2007" report. Gartner defines leaders as "distinguished by their focus on driving a paradigm shift toward increased business user participation in the entire process improvement life cycle by enabling explicit, model-driven solution deployment rather than traditional coded approaches."
