20 August 2001 - Marimba, Inc. (Nasdaq: MRBA), a leading provider of systems
management solutions built for e-business, today announced that Deloitte
Consulting, one of the world's leading consulting firms, will use Marimba's
Desktop/Mobile Management products to distribute and manage software on

streamline software distribution in conjunction with its Windows 2000

"Our team is charged with the rollout of Windows 2000 and subsequent
management of a full suite of custom and shrink-wrapped applications on
laptops located all over the world," said Eric Reoli, manager of Global IT
Infrastructure for Deloitte Consulting. "Marimba's Desktop/Mobile Management
products will allow us to proactively distribute updates to our
practitioners' laptops, regardless of location or connection type, and
without disruptions to their service."

Deloitte Consulting will leverage Marimba's core functionality to achieve
its quality-of-service objectives, while containing administration costs.
Marimba's functionality includes dynamic byte-level-differencing, checkpoint
restart, bandwidth throttling, and advanced Windows 2000 functionality, such
as support for MSI packaging.

geographically distributed endpoints is a difficult challenge that many
enterprises face," said Rich Wyckoff, president and CEO of Marimba. "We are
pleased that Deloitte Consulting recognised that Marimba's Desktop/Mobile
