Tibco Software ( TIBX) said finance chief Christopher G. O'Meara stepped down.

The Palo Alto, Calif., maker of business integration and process management software said O'Meara served eight years. The company said Murray D. Rode, executive vice president for strategic operations, will become chief financial officer while continuing with his current duties.

"During Chris's tenure, TIBCO was one of the first technology companies to comply with section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and has been known to always act with the highest degree of financial integrity," said Chairman Vivek Ranadive. "Chris O'Meara has served TIBCO well and we greatly appreciate his professionalism and diligent services to the company."

The company said its fourth-quarter outlook is unchanged. On Monday, Tibco dropped a nickel to $7.73.
