MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- March 12, 2013

Kaazing, pioneers of HTML5 WebSocket and the leading live web and mobile
communication platform, today announced their partnership with TIBCO Software
Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) to offer the first-ever CIO Global Speaker Series for 2013
entitled “Modern Architecture for the Mobile Enterprise.”

From March 19 through to the end of 2013, Kaazing and TIBCO will host two
global webinars and events in California, New York, London, and Paris.
Featured speakers include:

  *Jeffrey S. Hammond: Forrester Research VP and Principal Analyst; “Top
    Industry Analyst,” according to the Institute of Industry Analyst
    Relations; Expert in open source, next-gen mobile, and client
    architectures.
  *John R. Rymer: Forrester Research VP and Principal Analyst; Enterprise
    middleware and cloud platform expert.
  *Larry McQueary: Director of Business Development, Messaging at TIBCO;
    Global enterprise middleware and integration expert.

Industry experts agree that IT leaders must make significant strategic and
investment shifts during the next few years to properly prepare their
enterprise for the convergence of mobile, social, cloud, and big data.

In a Forrester Research report published in May 2012, “Define A Road Map For
Mobile Security And Operations,” the authors wrote, "Many enterprises are
considering developing HTML5 applications, but operating HTML5 applications
may require I&O pros to upgrade the infrastructure to support the new
websocket communication."

“As founders and pioneers of the HTML5 WebSocket standard, Kaazing has worked
to migrate many global customers from slow, static server-side architectures
to a modern architecture that can enable massively scalable, real-time data
and communication solutions,” said John Donnelly III, Executive Vice
President, Kaazing. “We are pleased to be working with TIBCO and top industry
analysts like Jeffrey and John to help deliver this message to innovative,
customer-focused enterprises.”

“Modern Architecture for the Mobile Enterprise” will give CEOs and CIOs an
opportunity to learn from industry experts about why companies need to
reinvent their architecture to be user-focused in the new “always on, web
connected” enterprise. Event topics will include global IT trends, priorities,
and budget allocations in key areas of middleware, applications, web and
mobile investments, as well as next generation architectures that enable the
“connected enterprise.”

“TIBCO Web Messaging powered by Kaazing is at the forefront of this new modern
architecture,” said Tom Laffey, Executive Vice President for Products and
Technology at TIBCO. “Our enterprise customers want to extend their data to
the web and mobile, but in a highly scalable, secure and cost-effective
method. Importantly, we see our clients requesting easy integration and the
ability to rapidly deploy these new web and mobile architectures. Our CIO
series is designed to help enterprises prepare for that investment and
organizational shift, and we welcome CIO contemporaries to attend these
events.”

Analysts forecast that mobile phones will overtake the PC as the most common
web access device worldwide in 2013. Businesses need the capacity to rapidly
build and deploy mobile applications that can reach the maximum number of
users at the lowest possible cost, while delivering a real-time experience
that is fast, consistent, and secure, regardless of a user’s network,
location, or choice of mobile device.

“With more than 1 billion smartphones worldwide, and tablets numbering in the
hundreds of millions, the scope of the mobile revolution rivals that of the
move from monolithic systems to client/server computing in the 1990s,” wrote
Jeffrey Hammond in a Forrester Research report, “The Future Of Mobile
Application Development,” that he co-authored in January 2013. “As in that
period, we're now seeing massive changes to application architecture as
companies modernize the way they build applications. Modern applications
require multichannel clients, elastic infrastructure, and elastic licensing;
they're composed of multiple service endpoints that are provisioned by
developers with direct customer feedback on their convenience.”

By attending one of TIBCO & Kaazing’s “Modern Architecture for the Mobile
Enterprise” events, enterprises will learn from experts in the industry on the
technical impact modernapplications will place on businesses, and what
enterprises can do to prepare for a new generation of contextual systems that
improve customer engagement and employee productivity by integrating systems
of engagement, record, and operation.
