PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TIBCO Software Inc. today announced that Forrester Research, Inc. has named TIBCO as a leader in its August 2007 evaluation, "The Forrester Wave(TM): Human-Centric BPMS For Banking and Investments, Q3 2007." Forrester evaluated 11 leading human-centric business process management suite (BPMS) vendors with a financial services focus across 17 criteria, placing TIBCO in the leader category.

Additionally, the report highlights TIBCO's experience with BPM centers of excellence (COE), noting "one of the best ways to work across organizational silos with BPM is to use COEs, and TIBCO has a very strong COE professional services offering."

"Financial services is one of TIBCO's key vertical areas, and being recognized as a leader is a clear indication that we are providing the investment and banking industry with the tools they need to solve a variety of business challenges" said Jeff Kristick, vice president, Product Marketing, TIBCO.
