Palo Alto, CA and London, UK


21 December, 2011


Nimbus, now a division of TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX), today announced that it has been included in the 'leaders' quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis (BPA) Tools1 for 2011.

Ian Gotts, vice president at TIBCO Software Inc. and founder of Nimbus, explains, "We are delighted to have been placed by Gartner in the leaders quadrant. We believe this recognition is thanks to the commitment of our staff and clients over many years. We feel the enthusiasm of our clients for TIBCO Nimbus Control® and what they achieve with it clearly made an impact on Gartner. Gartner's market analysis was made prior to the acquisition of Nimbus by TIBCO, so in my opinion our ability to execute has risen still further since the report was compiled."

In the Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis Tools report Gartner comments, "…the overall BPA tool adoption rate will accelerate as mainstream organizations become more involved with BP modeling to support SOA, cloud computing and process outsourcing. The future direction for BPA will be increasing use by the business for both system-automated tasks and human-to-human BPA for the masses, instead of BPA for the few. Increasing integration with BI and operational intelligence will see BPA extend into decision support at a strategic level, but also at a day-to-day operational level."

The TIBCO Nimbus Control® enterprise business process improvement software is unique in its ability to involve the whole workforce in business process excellence. It allows organizations to capture, manage and deploy operational processes and supporting information to all employees, across the web or on a mobile device. Delivered on premise or in the cloud, offering low total cost of ownership, TIBCO Nimbus Control® can help firms to improve performance, efficiency and compliance. It integrates with other tools including SAP® to provide organizations with end-to-end process understanding and social interaction tools enhance company-wide collaboration.
