    NEW YORK, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearReason, a leading provider of
 strategic process management applications, announces the general availability
 of its Fluid Enterprise 2.0 product at the Internet and Electronic Commerce
 Conference and Exposition (iEB).  Fluid Enterprise provides companies with an
 automated software platform that reduces the time and risks associated with
 e-Business improvement projects.
     "Many companies are under pressure to improve processes and execute
 critical projects," said Amy Stapleton, chief executive officer of
 ClearReason.  "Until now, organizations had to carry out most of the major
 tasks associated with process improvement manually, without the help of an
 integrated software platform.  Fluid Enterprise was designed to increase the
 success rate of these projects, while accelerating their track to
 profitability."
 
     Reducing the Risks of E-Business Projects
     Large e-Business projects have a high rate of failure. Commonly sited
 reasons for project failure include improperly defined project scope, poor
 implementation plan, lack of process documentation, and inadequate internal
 communication.  Using ClearReason's Fluid Enterprise application,
 organizations can avoid these project pitfalls and consistently achieve top
 results.
     The Fluid Enterprise platform combines project tracking, document
 management, messaging and collaboration tools to provide project teams and
 business stakeholders with a new level of process control.  Project managers
 can create, store, and re-use best-practice implementation methodologies.
 Knowledge about critical processes and systems is organized and stored in
 persistent Project Libraries.  Project participants access reusable document
 templates and standards from a Corporate Library.  Project teams use
 specialized collaboration tools to improve communication among themselves, as
 well as with executive management and end users.  Personalized dashboards
 allow everyone to monitor the status of projects and business performance
 indicators.
     "Key to companies being successful is their ability to adapt the entire
 organization's e-Business processes quickly and seamlessly to their
 customers," said Reid Conrad, vice president of TIBCO Software Inc.  "Fluid
 Enterprise enables an organization to minimize the 'change' risk and
 accelerate the deployment of e-Business projects through its Web-based project
 management solution."
