Cicero XM™ Selected as 2011 CODiE™ Awards Finalist for Best Integration Solution

Cicero XM Recognized as One of the Software Industry's Finest Products

CARY, NC--(Marketwire - Apr 20, 2011) - Cicero Inc. (OTCBB: CICN), a global leader in customer experience management and desktop integration solutions, today announced that Cicero XM has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious CODiE Awards in the "Best Integration" category. Being selected as a finalist is a unique and important distinction, as the CODiEs are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. Established by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the CODiEs recognize excellence and achievement in the business software, digital content, and education technology industries.

"For more than 25 years, the CODiE Awards have shone a spotlight on the companies and products that are revolutionizing software, education technology and digital content," said Ken Wasch, President of SIIA. "What sets this program apart from all others is that the winners are selected by those who really know their stuff -- whether they're tech executives, industry analysts, or journalists. SIIA recruits leading software, digital content and education people to put each nominated product through an intensive review process. Cicero and all companies that survive the process and become a finalist can say unequivocally that they are producing one of the finest, most innovative products on the market."

"Enterprise IT organizations are looking for products which reduce the effort, cost and risk of integration," said Mike Garner, Chief Customer Officer of Cicero. "Cicero XM's integration capabilities and unique United Data Model™ does just that by abstracting data from their sources, enabling IT to quickly allow enterprise applications to collaborate, create intention-based composite views, and guide employees through key business processes. The resultant 'smart desktop' measurably improves the productivity of knowledge workers across the enterprise and reduces the amount of effort customers must exert to find answers."
