PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - April 16, 2013) - TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ:
TIBX) today announced that tibbr® -- a leading enterprise social network --
has established a platform partnership with KPN, a leading European
telecommunications provider and cloud services aggregator, and is also now

now uniquely provides the convenience of the one-provider, one-bill customer
experience for enterprise social networking delivered through each of these
trusted global cloud providers.

single billing and a single support contact for all participating
applications, available to over 80,000 business customers. The tibbr offering,
optimized for the KPN platform, provides a highly integrated, ready-to-go

According to IDC^1, adoption of enterprise social software is set to
accelerate rapidly through 2016 as geographic regions beyond the Americas
begin to embrace the solutions. With this expansion of its platform ecosystem,
tibbr brings the social enterprise to new geographic markets and lowers the
barrier for small businesses to take advantage of its platform, which connects
people, processes, and new and existing business applications in a relevant

Gerard Schiebroek, Vice-President Marketing & Sales KPN IT Solutions. "We were
looking for an intuitive service that users love and adopt, satisfies IT with
enterprise-grade security and control, and drives real ROI benefits for
customers through contextual integration with current and next-generation
applications. Only tibbr met all these criteria."
