TIBCO Software and MITEM to Enter Strategic Alliance
for Mainframe e-Business Solution

Alliance Enables Leading Mainframe Integration Solution For Creating End-To-End
B2B, B2C and B2E Systems Across The Web

MENLO PARK, CA (February 29, 2000) - MITEM Corporation, a leading provider of high-performance mainframe integration solutions for e-business, and TIBCO Software Inc. (Nasdaq: TIBX), a leading provider of real-time infrastructure software for e-business, today jointly announced their intent to enter into a global technology alliance that will provide customers a real-time, mainframe integration solution for creating end-to-end business-to-business (B2B), business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-employee (B2E) systems.

TIBCO and MITEM announced their intent for MITEM to be TIBCO's preferred solution for mainframe legacy system integration and TIBCO's TIB/ActiveEnterpriseT to be MITEM's preferred solution for e-business infrastructure software. TIBCO also announced its intent to resell MitemView, MITEM's software product designed to integrate legacy computer systems with Windows and Web technology, without requiring changes or additions to existing host applications. The companies plan to collaborate to jointly market and sell the TIBCO/MITEM solution on an integrated basis.

"Many mission critical applications will remain on mainframe and mid-range systems to ensure adequate levels of performance, availability, security and reliability," said Gale Aguilar, MITEM's president and COO. "Our alliance with TIBCO will enable our joint customers to rapidly create end-to-end e-business solutions that encompass the mainframe environment without changes to the existing applications."

"Many of our customers' e-business scenarios involve mainframe components," said Vivek Ranadivé, TIBCO Software's chairman and CEO. "We are very excited to work with the leading mainframe connectivity provider, MITEM, whose technology complements our e-business infrastructure software with an easy-to-use, highly functional, and high performance mainframe connectivity solution."
