TIBCO Recognized as Influential Leader in "Mashups" and "SOA & Middleware"

Company Named to SD Times 100 for Fourth Consecutive Year



15 July, 2009


TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced that it has been named to the 2009 SD Times 100 list for the fourth consecutive year. TIBCO was recognized for its achievements in both the "Mashups" and "SOA & Middleware" categories.

The SD Times 100 recognizes companies, organizations and individuals that "set the agenda" for software managers, developers, and the industry through leadership and innovation. "We took into account each company's leadership, innovation, reputation and the news the company generated in the last year," said Alan Zeichick, editorial director of BZ Media's SD Times. "The winners of the 2009 SD Times 100 have demonstrated their leadership in shaping the software development industry, and TIBCO is a fine example of a company that has used innovation to set trends, while also maintaining a competitive edge."

In choosing the 2009 SD Times 100, the judges and editors of the SD Times carefully considered each company's offerings and reputation. They also looked at industry "buzz" – how much attention and conversation they heard about the company and its products and technologies – as a sign of leadership in the industry. The result is a list of 100 of the industry's top leaders, innovators and influencers – the "best of the best."

"Being named to the SD Times 100 for the fourth consecutive year highlights the value TIBCO brings to our customers and the enterprise development community," said Ram Menon, executive vice president, Worldwide Marketing, TIBCO. "We strive to provide innovation in enterprise software, as evidenced by our recent cloud computing release, that helps organizations leverage technology to make smarter decisions and achieve greater business success."
