- New Web Client, Broadcast Services, and Developer tools enable enterprises to deploy next generation business intelligence

SOMERVILLE, Mass., – July 10, 2007 – Spotfire, a division of TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX), today announced the immediate availability of TIBCO Spotfire® DXP 2.0, the newest version of its enterprise analytics platform for next generation business intelligence. This release includes new web client, interactive reporting and customization capabilities that enable every user in the enterprise to gain more insights from the data they work with every day.

Before TIBCO Spotfire DXP 2.0, enterprises were limited in their ability to discover insights in the information they work with daily due to delays inherent with static reports from traditional BI systems or spreadsheets. With the new interactive and visual TIBCO Spotfire DXP Web Player, enterprises can eliminate these issues by broadcasting personalized and updated data to everyone automatically and by using the extensive customization capabilities to make analysis a part of any business process.

“TIBCO Spotfire DXP enterprise analytics platform allows us to ask and answer questions on demand, pulling information from multiple data sources and integrating new information as it becomes available,” said Thomas Lundborg, Business Analyst, Scientific Information Services, AstraZeneca. “With TIBCO Spotfire DXP enterprise analytics, specific analyses have become much easier. The result of using Spotfire is the ability to do things in a far superior way than what was possible before.”

“For many organizations, traditional BI falls short because it just can’t reach enough data and it isn’t user friendly enough for the end user. TIBCO Spotfire DXP’s enterprise analytics goes beyond traditional BI by getting at more data and giving it to end users in a highly interactive and visually intuitive format,” said David O’Connell, Senior Analyst at Nucleus Research. “This means that line-of-business managers can more rapidly find actionable information in their data, seize opportunities, and achieve competitive advantage.”

TIBCO Spotfire DXP 2.0 offers many new features to revolutionize business intelligence including:

Interactive Analytics via the Web

Business users continue to turn to their Web browser as a key business tool, and Spotfire has enhanced its platform to deliver critical information insights via the Web to a wide variety of users.

“At IBC, we are working diligently to contribute to the good health of our members by effectively and efficiently financing the delivery of quality health care,” said Cristian Ilie, who is leading the Innovation & Solutions team at Independence Blue Cross. “Monitoring the market for emerging concepts and adopting new innovative technologies, such as the new generation of TIBCO Spotfire DXP, is key to our efforts to empower developers and business analysts to accelerate the overall decision making process.”

Broadcasting Interactive Analyses

To speed decision-making the TIBCO Spotfire DXP platform offers powerful analysis automation and broadcasting capabilities. Interactive analysis templates can automatically keep a broad base of internal or external users up to date on changing data.

Enterprise Extensibility

Spotfire offers one open, extensive platform that fully supports enterprise integration. The software development kit (SDK) for TIBCO Spotfire DXP 2.0 enables developers to build compiled extensions to the platform. Spotfire will also release client and server application programming interfaces (APIs) to support custom application development, “mash-ups” and other business process integrations.

“TIBCO Spotfire DXP 2.0 has evolved to the next level, offering several new features for analytic ‘power users,’ like the ability to load multiple data tables into a single environment,” said Glenn Wong, Director of Operations at Trinity Pharma Solutions. “TIBCO Spotfire DXP 2.0’s powerful backend enhancements, such as the ability to post analyses to users via a Web browser and its open API, should accelerate user adoption and provide a rich toolkit for custom development.”

Christopher Ahlberg, executive vice president, Spotfire Division said, “TIBCO Spotfire DXP 2.0 enterprise analytics is a huge step beyond static reports and unshackles knowledge workers from waiting for IT to respond to data queries. Business professionals are free to ask and answer their own questions and groups can now reap the benefits of powerful on-the-fly analytics.”
