tibbr Named a Leader in Enterprise Social Platforms by Independent Research Firm

Receives Highest Scores Among Vendors Evaluated for Current Offering and Market Presence in Activity Streams Segment

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX), a global leader in infrastructure and business intelligence software, today announced it has received recognition in Forrester Research, Inc.'s The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Social Platforms, Q2 2014 as a leader in the enterprise social market for tibbr®, its workplace collaboration platform.

Forrester states, "Enterprise social does not live in isolation. It thrives with business-specific horizontal and vertical extensions. As market leaders emerge, partner ecosystems will follow to exploit the best market opportunities. Leaders will become even more dominant as broader partner ecosystems increasingly equate to broader and deeper capabilities."

"As the enterprise software landscape becomes increasingly complex with businesses using a variety of different applications from different providers, the need for seamless integration with third party applications become ever more crucial," said Leandro Perez, director of product marketing, TIBCO. "Built with the expert integration technology of TIBCO, tibbr thrives in enabling best-of-breed social collaboration across businesses with diverse sets of business applications and systems."

Forrester examined enterprise social in two segments: activity streams and social platforms. tibbr is recognized as a leader in both segments.

"[tibbr] remains a viable offering for organizations looking for focused enterprise activity stream functionality. However, TIBCO has grown the offering to become a much more robust enterprise social platform, particularly when paired with pre-integrated offerings," wrote Rob Koplowitz, vice president and principal analyst, Forrester Research, Inc. "tibbr is also at the forefront for leveraging geolocation for situational analysis to target content and enterprise recommendations. tibbr shines when it is aligned with TIBCO's middleware as a strategy to socially enable a broad heterogeneous computing environment."

A complimentary copy of the The Forrester Wave: Enterprise Social Platforms, Q2 2014 can be downloaded on the tibbr website.
