<p>PALO ALTO, Calif. – June 20, 2005 – TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX), a leading business integration and process management software company that enables real-time business, today announced a partnership with Defywire, Inc., a leading mobile and wireless solution provider. The goal of the partnership is to enable TIBCO customers to gain real-time access to business processes via virtually any wireless device, on any combination of mobile networks.

<p>The Defywire Mobility Suite, coupled with TIBCO®’s award-winning business process management (BPM) solutions, would enable customers to both seamlessly and quickly deploy wireless applications via a secure, reliable application architecture that leverages and complements a company’s existing information technology investments.

Using Defywire middleware and applications, companies ranging from leading Fortune 200 companies to small startups have effectively mobilized their workforces and reinvented their business processes in just a few weeks or even days.</p>
