TIBCO Brings Its Customers Into the API Economy With the Addition of TIBCO API 
Exchange 
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/03/13 --  TIBCO Software Inc.
(NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced the release of TIBCO(R) API Exchange,
a single integrated solution for implementing an Open API business
strategy to meet the needs of this rapidly evolving market space. 
Open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) represent the leading
edge of a new business model, providing innovative ways for companies
to expand brand value and routes to market, and create new value
chains for intellectual property.  
"APIs are foundational technologies for digital businesses in the
21st century," said Matt Quinn, CTO, TIBCO. "TIBCO API Exchange is
going to make it simple for enterprise customers to expand their
businesses into new revenue and marketing channels." 
TIBCO API Exchange will be on display at TIBCO's annual TUCON(R) user
conference, October 14-17 at the ARIA Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. 
Reducing On-boarding Costs Through Developer Self-Service 
 TIBCO API
Exchange incorporates a self-service portal that makes it easy for
developers and business partners to get started, significantly
accelerating the on-boarding process and providing business
transparency related to the use of Open APIs in their applications.  
The developer portal also provides a fully integrated environment to
create, test, document, and publish Open APIs, with support for
REST-based API styles, and seamless transformation of data and
message formats, such as XML and JSON. 
Security and Access Control Through Event-Based Policy Management
 As
companies open up new levels of access to internal data and business
functionality through the use of Open APIs, they require solutions
that provide advanced security enforcement and threat protection,
managing and securing access to their data across broad range of
platforms and web-based mobile devices.  
TIBCO API Exchange will address this challenge by providing superior
security and access-control capabilities, leveraging proven strengths
in the area of enterprise-scale, event-based policy management.
Examples of policy domains managed by the product include
authentication, throttling, content-based message routing, mediation,
and message transformation.  
I
ndustry-Leading Analytics to Understand and Manage Your Ecosystem 
It is critical for both providers and consumers of Open APIs to be
able to monitor API usage. TIBCO API Exchange integrates with TIBCO
Spotfire(R) analytics server to provide a full range of
out-of-the-box analytics and reporting capabilities.  
Consumers of Open APIs need to understand and monitor API usage
within their application bases, and providers need to ensure delivery
of services that support SLAs and other performance criteria.
Spotfire analytics provides end-to-end monitoring for API requests
and responses, and provides full audit trail and debugging
capabilities for rapid problem resolution. 
Availability
 TIBCO API
Exchange will be available in both Cloud and on-premise versions and
is scheduled to be generally available by the end of November 2013.
