  • H1 2013 Software Industry Highlights Salesforce.com Makes Big Bet on Marketing Cloud  Salesforce.com acquires Exact Target for $2.5 billion or 6x revenues — Marketing Cloud was built on the back of the Radian6 and Buddy Media acquisitions and was struggling to gain traction in the market due to being an incomplete solution — ET fills the gap around demand management, making Salesforce competitive with both Oracle (via its 2012 purchase of Eloqua) and Marketo — We believe that Salesforce will keep the company separate for now in order to minimize disruption while some measure of technical integration is performed — While ET has a strong presence in the SMB space, we believe that significant technical work needs to be done in order to make the products enterprise scale  We view this deal as crucial for Salesforce as market saturation is causing its Sales Cloud growth to continue to slow Oracle Inks Two Surprising Partnerships – One Meaningful, the other for Show  Oracle and Salesforce.com announced a nine year partnership with the following highlights — Salesforce will standardize on Oracle data center infrastructure — Salesforce will deploy Oracle HCM applications, displacing Workday — Oracle will embrace Salesforce CRM  We believe that Salesforce has spent the past few years considering the move off of Oracle and onto the open source, standard Postgres system but grew increasingly nervous about customer continuity through the transition and beyond.  Importantly this deal also addresses another key issue for Salesforce, providing a decade of cost certainty around its infrastructure.  Oracle also announced a partnership with Microsoft making the Oracle database available in the Azure cloud. While we do not believe that this deal has much revenue significance to either side, it is viewed by customers as an important sign that the two companies can work together. 2
  • Software Industry Trends  The global software industry experienced solid growth over the last five years despite worldwide economic turmoil. The industry is expected to continue its momentum to reach over $450 billion by 2017, representing a 6.8% CAGR  BYOD dilemma continues to be a major growth area as 2/3 of employees and managers are choosing their own devices — MDM Software has been increasingly in demand along with system integrators, hosting companies and MSPs  Big Data will accelerate in 2013 – acquisitions are also forecasted within this space as big vendors like IBM, Oracle and SAP try to expand their big data offerings with leading-edge technology from startups Worldwide Software Revenue by Category Worldwide Software Revenue by Geography 250 200 200 150 150 ($B) ($B) 250 100 100 50 50 0 0 2011 2012 2013 2014 Application development and deployment Applications System infrastructure software 2015 2016 2011 2012 2013 Americas 2014 EMEA 2015 2016 APJ Source: IDC, 2012. 3

  • Woodside Capital Research Top Software Company Insights Cloud and Enterprise Software We came away from the RHT analyst day today with no real change in our view on the business. At a high level we believe that the company has adopted the right longer term strategy but could have a challenging time sustaining more near term growth as the RHEL business continues to slow and the other product lines grow to the point where their faster growth begins to impact results. We believe that the middleware business has, in the past few quarters reached the point where its accelerating growth is moderately helping results. However, we believe that continued modest declines in server are suppressing that benefit. While we are optimistic about the new offerings RHT has launched – OpenStack, Open Shift, Cloud Infrastructure, we believe that it will be at least 18-24 months until any are meaningful contributors. We believe that the traditional networking equipment market is undergoing a tectonic shift that will play out over the next few years. Driven by the need for more programmability and a strong push to virtualize many network functions in large enterprise and telco, the competitive landscape is changing. Key requirements appear to be: The ability to consolidate several legacy devices onto a single multi-service platform with each running as a separate virtual instance including application delivery controller (ADC), firewall, DPI, and policy features. High capacity throughput and massive clustering scalability. Both CTXS and FFIV are quickly moving to address this new integrated platform approach and are on a direct collision course. FFIV continues to report lackluster sales growth in its ADC business and the company appears to be heading towards a single digit product growth story based on its most recent results. The company is finally aggressively driving its roadmap to include virtual ADC and an organically developed firewall capabilities. CTXS on the other hand is seeing incredible growth in its Netscaler ADC sales (up 54% y/y) and is seeing major traction with its SDX platform targeting multi service delivery of ADC, 3rd party firewall, mobile traffic optimization in telco and in large enterprise. CTXS is taking a somewhat different approach by offering best of breed third party approaches to various network functions, for example its support for Palo Alto (PANW) NGFW. As we look at this market evolution, we reaffirm our view that CTXS is far better positioned to capitalize on this shift than FFIV. Acting on our belief that Master Data Management (MDM) is not well understood by the Street, we spent time with Informatica management discussing the product set, use cases, and the competitive environment. MDM is most useful for enterprises that have multiple CRM, ERP, Inventory management, retail POS systems, etc. Customers that have expanded through acquisition are likely to inherit multiple instances of legacy and cloud based applications that need to tie back to a single source of truth regarding customers, part numbers, vendors and the like for operating purposes as well as compliance. We discussed customers like Nordstrom (JWN) that are comprised of multiple entities: Nordstrom retail, Nordstrom Rack, and Nordstrom.com. Competitors such as Oracle Corporation (ORCL) and SAP AG (SAP) are considered to be behind the curve, offering MDM and Data Quality as a check box after thought to their main products. IBM Corporation (IBM) approaches the MDM problem from a services perspective, driven by project so as to optimize IGS service revenue. Tibco (TIBX) offers MDM at no cost to their customers, thus not a priority product. Informatica offers Cloud MDM to Salesforce.com (CRM) to the larger 4000 customers that generate over half of CRM’s revenues. 9
