Overview

TIBCO Software Inc. (“TIBCO,” the “Company,” “we” or “us”), a Delaware corporation, is a leading provider of infrastructure software. We provide a broad range of standards-based infrastructure software solutions that help organizations achieve the benefits of real-time business. Our infrastructure software gives customers the ability to constantly innovate by connecting incompatible information technology assets in a service-oriented architecture and streamlining activities through business process management. We give customers the information and intelligence tools they need to make faster and smarter decisions—what we call The Power of Now®.

As the basis of the real-time movement of data across the enterprise, TIBCO’s software is uniquely capable of correlating information in real-time about an organization’s operations and performance with information about expected behavior and business rules so a company can anticipate and respond to threats and opportunities before they occur. Our software enables our customers to leverage and extend the capabilities of their own information technology applications and assets to move towards a new way of doing business that lets organizations anticipate customer needs, create opportunities and avoid potential problems.

We are the successor to a portion of the business of Teknekron Software Systems, Inc. (“Teknekron”). Teknekron developed software, known as The Information Bus® (“TIB”) technology, for the integration and delivery of market data, such as stock quotes, news and other financial information, in trading rooms of large banks and financial services institutions. In 1992, Teknekron expanded its development efforts to include solutions designed to enable complex and disparate manufacturing equipment and software applications, primarily in the semiconductor fabrication market, to communicate within the factory environment. Teknekron was acquired by Reuters Group PLC (“Reuters”), the global information company, in 1994. Following the acquisition, continued development of the TIB® technology was undertaken to expand its use in the financial services markets.

In January 1997, TIBCO was established as an entity separate from Teknekron. We were formed to create and market software solutions for use in the integration of business information, processes and applications. In connection with our establishment as a separate entity, Reuters transferred to us certain assets and liabilities related to our business and granted to us a royalty-free license to the intellectual property from which some of our messaging software products originated.

STYLE="margin-top:18px;margin-bottom:0px">TIBCO Products

We offer a wide range of software
products that can be sold individually to solve specific technical challenges, but the emphasis of our product development and sales efforts is to create products that interoperate and can be sold together as a suite to enable businesses to be more
cost-effective, agile and efficient. These products can help organizations achieve success in three areas: service-oriented architecture (“SOA”), business optimization and business process management (“BPM”).

STYLE="font-size:6px;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:0px"> 







  

SOA: Our software helps organizations migrate to an IT infrastructure made up of services that can be assembled, orchestrated and reused. SOA turns
information and functions into discrete and reusable components that can be invoked from across the business and aggregated with other such services to create “composite applications.” This helps companies streamline the integration and
orchestration of assets across technological, organizational and geographical boundaries. Our software enables the creation, management and virtualization of heterogeneous services and provides a unified environment for policy and service
management. It also delivers capabilities in the areas of service mediation, orchestration and communication and the development of rich internet applications. Our products give companies the flexibility to do these things using the standards or
technologies that best meet their needs in specific situations (such as HTTP, e-mail, J2EE, EDI, Messaging, .NET, Web Services, etc.) without replacing existing technologies or committing to any one technology across the enterprise.

 







  

Business optimization: Our software helps organizations convert and analyze data to create meaningful information and deliver it to employees, customers and
partners. Our software also tracks large volumes of real-time events as they occur and applies sophisticated rules in order to identify patterns that signify problems, threats and opportunities, and can automatically initiate appropriate
notifications or adaptation of processes. This helps line-level employees perform their jobs, helps managers identify and analyze problems and opportunities, and gives customers the ability to get accurate and consistent information directly or
through salespeople, service personnel or customer care representatives.

 







  

BPM: Our software helps organizations better coordinate the process flows that control how their assets work together. This software can coordinate the human
and electronic resources inside a business and its network of customers and partners. Our products not only automate routine tasks and exception handling, but orchestrate long-lived activities and transactions that cut across organizational and
geographical boundaries. Our software enables organizations to provide a higher level of customer satisfaction, retain customers, maximize partnerships with other businesses and out-execute their competitors.

STYLE="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:0px; text-indent:4%">Our products are currently licensed by companies worldwide in diverse industries such as financial services, telecommunications, retail, healthcare,
manufacturing, energy, transportation, logistics, government and insurance. We sell our products through a direct sales force and through alliances with leading software vendors and systems integrators.
