TIBCO Launches Integration Platform as a Service
May 22nd, 2013 By: John Rath
TIBCO Software (TIBX) announced the launch of TIBCO Cloud Bus, its new subscription-based Integration Platform as a service (iPaaS) offering that leverages the company’s integration expertise and presents users with the ability to drastically shorten time to market and lower costs as they migrate applications and workloads to the cloud.
“With Cloud Bus, TIBCO is combining the deployment flexibility of the cloud with enterprise-class integration features in a single subscription service that customers can run anywhere – on-premise, in the cloud, in bare metal or virtualized environments,” said Matt Quinn, CTO for TIBCO Software. ”TIBCO Cloud Bus provides ready-made integrations across popular SaaS and critical on-premise applications, while allowing subscribers the ability to identify, configure and extend integration templates for their own business context with ease. Finally, and as you would expect from TIBCO, Cloud Bus includes extensive capabilities for real-time integration, meaning changes are reflected in all connected applications as they happen, without waiting for the next batch update.”
Single subscription model
TIBCO Cloud bus subscribers can deploy cloud applications and only pay for what they consume. The solution provides ready-made integrations for a variety of applications such as Salesforce.com and other vendors. Changes are reflected in all connected cloud applications as they happen, without waiting for the next batch update, and connectivity capabilities to deliver real-time integration.
“If a company’s approach to integration is too fixed or locked-in, it could limit the company’s ability to leverage the cloud or switch SaaS providers once it’s there,” said Quinn. ”TIBCO Cloud Bus offers a choice of deployment options, ready-made integrations, and real-time integration support that delivers the flexibility and time to value that enterprises are looking for in moving applications and workloads to the cloud.”
