SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., June 28, 2011 – TIBCO Software Inc. [NASDAQ: TIBX]
announced tibbrR 3.0, a transformative upgrade to its enterprise social
computing platform. First released in January 2011, tibbr empowers
professionals to follow their relevant colleagues, systems, and subjects
that drive their businesses.

tibbr 3.0 will add robust unified communications capabilities, including HD
video conferencing and desktop sharing from within tibbr as well as
strengthen integration to important enterprise systems.

Enterprise customers across 25 countries are currently using tibbr to bring
together their people, data and business processes in one seamless user
experience. tibbr 3.0 will add functionality across five broad enterprise

Unifying Communications in the Workplace: Most enterprise social
platforms have been divorced from the unified communication tools that
people rely on to collaborate. With tibbr 3.0, that changes with the
addition of tibCastT. Tightly integrated into their stream of interaction
and conversations, users can initiate voice calls, video conferencing, or
desktop sharing via a single click using tibCast. White-boarding and status
meetings can be automatically recorded and reposted for further
collaboration and distribution.

Beyond Follow, Act on Activity Streams from Enterprise Applications:
Expanding on the promise of following event streams from existing systems,
tibbr 3.0 will allow users to “close the loop” by acting on this information
right within tibbr. For example, you can approve a purchase order or order
more inventory for a popular item without leaving tibbr.

Adding a Social Layer to Existing Legacy Applications in Context:
tibSmartwidgets adds a social layer on top of existing applications, by
allowing tibbr to be embedded in any enterprise application, including CRM,
ERP, and intranet portals. Depending on the page the user is viewing, this
widget displays contextually relevant conversations.

Document Management: tibbr 3.0 will have the capability to unlock
documents from information repositories and make them a part of the
conversation. Do you need to find a document that is stored on MicrosoftR
SharePointR? Search on tibbr. Using tibbr 3.0, people will easily access
documents from their SharePoint environments, and share them with colleagues
inside tibbr. They will be able to post new files back to relevant sites
within SharePoint.

Beyond the Workplace: tibbr has enabled employees to connect with the
people, processes and systems that drive a company’s internal business,
however companies are beginning to experience social sprawl – multiple
communities for partners, vendors, and customers. tibbr 3.0 will address
this head-on with tibbr Communities. tibbr Communities provides enterprises
with a single platform to create, manage and monitor multiple communities
while maintaining distinct identities and privacy rules for different groups
of stakeholders. This allows employees to seamlessly engage and move in and
out of these external communities as needed with a single login and URL.
tibbr users now have the confidence that they’re sharing and accessing the
right information with the right stakeholders.

Supporting Quotes:

“We are a globally dispersed organization that cannot afford to navigate all
over the place to find the real-time information we need the moment we need
it,” said Randy Wagner, Drilling Advisor, Apache Corp. “Social computing
provides immediacy and enables our operations to be more efficient by
working intuitively – without having to know what tool to use or what
technology is involved. A solution like TIBCO’s centrally exposes a wide
range of contextual information, feeds and conversations that will
ultimately enrich our company-wide dialogue and broaden our knowledge pool
to help us make faster, better decisions.”

“What makes tibbr so powerful is not just that we can share the events,
content and business processes that occur inside an enterprise,” said Ram
Menon, TIBCO’s executive vice president. “With tibbr 3.0, we will make it
easy to close the loop on those processes and tasks, and do so in a
collaborative manner that helps employees to accelerate their productivity.

tibbr 3.0 is slated to be generally available in August 2011.
