<p>FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE</p>
<p>TIBCO AND CORTICON STRENGTHEN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER COMPLETE BPM SOLUTION</p>
<p>TIBCO Extends BPM Leadership with Superior Business Rules Capabilities to Simplify Complex Problems and Improve Agility</p>
<p>PALO ALTO, Calif. and SAN MATEO, Calif., July 12, 2005 – TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX), a leading business integration and process management software company that enables real-time business, announced today that it has renewed its partnership with Corticon™ Technologies, a leading provider of business rules management software, to deliver a Business Process Management (BPM) solution with superior business rules capabilities. Available now, the TIBCO® Staffware Rules Manager, built on the Corticon Business Rules Management System (BRMS), provides powerful business rule modeling and automation that is fully integrated with TIBCO Staffware Process Suite.</p>
<p>Business rule management capabilities enhance BPM solutions by enabling fine-grain control of complex business processes. Using Corticon in conjunction with TIBCO BPM, business rules can be changed independently of the processes they govern. In addition, this agility is further increased with TIBCO Staffware Rules Manager, which provides non-technical business users with complete control to define, analyze, test and change any business rule. By reducing the dependence on IT staff for rule and process changes and increasing the participation of line-of-business users, delivery times of BPM deployments can be shortened significantly.</p>
<p>“TIBCO is in the unique position to capitalize on the growing demand for BPM,” said Mark Allen, M.D., co-founder and CEO of Corticon Technologies. “The company has built an exceptional customer base and the strongest suite of process and rules technologies existing under one roof. Our mutual customers will benefit from TIBCO’s commitment to Corticon’s BRMS through enhanced integration, servicing, support and single-source purchasing.”</p>
<p>“TIBCO selected Corticon for much the same reasons Gartner placed them in the BRE leadership quadrant — the solution is easy for customers to use and delivers reliable business rules by checking for completeness and ambiguities,” said Ram Menon, senior vice president, Worldwide Marketing, TIBCO Software Inc. “Using Corticon, we enhance our own leadership position in BPM, delivering the benefits of process integration with business rules so our customers capture new opportunities, save money and maintain competitive advantage.”</p>
