Mindjet to Deliver MindManager on WebEx Connect

Software-as-a-Service Platform Unifies On-Premises and On-Demand Solutions to Create Intelligent “Mashup” Applications for Knowledge Workers

SAN FRANCISO and SANTA CLARA, Calif., September 26, 2006—Mindjet Corporation, the global leader of productivity software for visualizing and managing information and WebEx (Nasdaq: WEBX), the leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications for collaborative business on the web, today announced that Mindjet® MindManager® Pro 6 will be available via the new WebEx Connect application grid.

Mindjet’s participation in the grid will provide WebEx Connect users with immediate access to Mindjet’s leading solution for business and project brainstorming and planning—and will do so in a “sticky,” one-stop location on the Web. In doing so, it will provide Mindjet with an efficient way to introduce its MindManager software to millions of WebEx users around the world.

“WebEx Connect enables customers to experience MindManager in an on-demand, trusted environment to help improve the way teams collaborate,” said Scott Raskin. “Mindjet MindManager is all about enabling individuals and teams to access, aggregate, interact with and implement ideas and information from disparate sources: email, the Web, RSS, corporate databases and applications. WebEx Connect provides the same kind of single point of access to multiple resources.”

Mindjet technology delivers a flexible, creative way for users to capture, organize, and share information. The company’s MindManager product line enables individuals and teams to visually connect and synthesize ideas through an intuitive interface integrated with XML, HTML, Web 2.0 and the Microsoft Office suite of applications, including Word, PowerPoint®, Outlook and Project and now Excel® and Visio®. Benefits include better project management, increased sales effectiveness and improved business and strategic planning.

Mindjet MindManager is one of the many applications users will be able to access through their personal WebEx Connect workspace and the WebEx Connect grid of partner applications. WebEx Connect is the first application platform specifically designed for on-demand collaboration and third party application integration. A unique composite collaboration and application platform, WebEx Connect will create a collaborative workspace, allowing users to access data from multiple applications custom designed for their particular workflow and business process. By leveraging open Web 2.0 protocols and collaborative WebEx connector APIs, WebEx Connect will make it easy for developers to adapt on-demand, desktop and enterprise applications to the platform or create new composite applications.

“As we have seen with ‘MindManager Instant Meeting: Powered by WebEx,’ our combined solutions literally transform the way business teams collaborate,” said Subrah Iyer, WebEx chairman and CEO, WebEx. “Mindjet’s participation in the WebEx Connect grid will vastly improve users ability to move quickly and intelligently from idea generation to implementation.”
