25 July 2001 - Citrix Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CTXS), a global leader in
application serving and portal software and services, today announced an
alliance with SiteScape, Inc., a leading provider of Web-based collaboration
software and services. The agreement benefits Citrix customers by giving
them the ability to integrate SiteScape Enterprise Forum 6.0 collaboration
software or WebWorkZone hosted service as an optional, plug-in component of
Citrix® XPS(tm), the company's XML-pure portal software. In addition to the
product integration, SiteScape has joined the Citrix Business Alliance(tm)
(CBA) Internet Solutions Programme, expanding joint marketing and sales
opportunities for both companies.


"Citrix customers are turning to Citrix XPS to help them enhance business
processes and communication with users across departments, business units,
and value chains," said Barry Davis, vice president, Business Development,
for Citrix. "By partnering with SiteScape we're adding value to XPS,
offering our customers a powerful and customisable collaboration platform
that can dramatically improve intra- and cross-enterprise communication and
work processes."


Citrix XPS portal software gives users a single, personalised and secure
point of command and control over the applications, information and business
processes they depend on to do their jobs and interact with peers within and
beyond the enterprise, whether they are customers, suppliers or partners.
SiteScape Forum 6.0, which allows users to host online discussions; share
documents; chat; create and participate in workflows; schedule meetings
using shared calendars; and send quick messages, is a powerful extension of
XPS capabilities. SiteScape functionality will be accessed through an XPS
Content Delivery Agent (CDA), an individual, easy-to-use Web-based
application that snaps directly into the users' homepage.


"We've seen that the combination of collaboration and workflow capabilities
within the portal is becoming increasingly important for the enterprise,"
said Richard M. Tahan, Jr., SiteScape's vice president of worldwide channel
marketing. "SiteScape's collaboration software allows XPS customers to make
faster, better decisions by allowing them to discuss and get input on the
various information sources that XPS aggregates. In addition, Forum captures
the decision-making process in perpetuity, forming a knowledge base of tacit
information."


Tahan continued, "We're excited about our partnership with Citrix and share
their enthusiasm for making our alliance a success."
