PALO ALTO, Calif. March 30, 2007--TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) and Xignite, the leading pure-play provider of financial web services for mission-critical corporate applications, today announced the availability of tibco.xignite.com, a feature rich Web-based solution that demonstrates the power of reusing asynchronous communications, JavaScript, and XML (AJAX) components and Web services to enable organizations in the financial services industry to quickly and easily develop and deploy composite applications. The integrated solution combines TIBCO’s AJAX and Rich Internet Application (RIAs) development framework – TIBCO General Interface™ – with Xignite's financial Web services."By combining the power and breadth of our Web services with the client functionality of TIBCO General Interface, businesses no longer have to labor over building custom applications from scratch, but can use reuse existing components to save time and money," said Stephane Dubois, CEO of Xignite. "Furthermore, developers will welcome this flexibility and the chance to see immediate results from the creation and deployment of their feature-rich applications." Financial events in markets, such as a Fed change in the interest policy or a spike in oil prices impact every financial professional and business around the world. The technology offerings from Xignite and TIBCO enable organizations to source financial data to effectively make mission-critical decisions. For users, tibco.xignite.com exemplifies how for example a day trader could quickly mine through a myriad of securities data to create extensive investment watch lists and view timely news and trend charts with drag and drop ease. In addition, it allows users to perform sophisticated searches based on fundamental characteristics of securities and more all through a single, feature-rich Web page that loads in seconds, but has the look and feel of a desktop application. "This collaboration demonstrates a viable approach for dramatically simplifying and accelerating the adoption and use of AJAX and SOA technologies," said Ram Menon, executive vice president, Worldwide Marketing, TIBCO. "It is also a perfect example of how we continue to afford businesses the opportunity to see greater efficiencies, cost savings and productivity in real-time." The solution is based on more than a decade of experience in Web services, RIA and AJAX.
