At its annual TUCON user conference, TIBCO Software (TIBX) announced a series of new cloud offerings that give customers the tools to successfully deploy and manage all of their data in the cloud. These new offerings join TIBCO's advanced location, business, and data prep analytics, as well as new open APIs, integration tools and management solutions.
"As cloud technologies become an increasingly large part of businesses' IT infrastructure, it's critical that TIBCO is able to offer valuable solutions that support these technologies," said Matt Quinn, chief technology officer, TIBCO. "Over the past year we have been committed to developing and acquiring the foremost cloud services that enable businesses to discover new ways of connecting people, deriving intelligence, and improving operational efficiency while mitigating the risks commonly associated with enhancements in innovation."
By the end of this year TIBCO will have new cloud services ready, with additional services scheduled in the first quarter of 2013. TIBCO GeoAnalytics is a cloud service that provides advanced location intelligence and geospatial analytics solutions, for interacting with enterprise platforms on mobile devices. TIBCO Spotfire Cloud gives enterprises a platform to analyze and collaborate on business insights whether or not the data itself is hosted, as well as comprehensive management features.
TIBCO Clarity enables business users to discover, profile, cleanse and standardize data collated from disparate sources and load quality data to applications for accurate analysis and intelligent decision-making. Finally, TIBCO Cloud MDM provides a single platform to manage master data records in a multi-domain environment as a cloud service.
In 2014 TIBCO will launch a Cloud API Exchange, Project Austin - a next generation data integration tool for real-time sharing, and a Cloud Metrics analytical tool.
Big Data Architecture
Starting the week at the TUCON event, TIBCO announced a big data architecture that sets the stage for a new wave in technology architecture that specifically addresses big data and the need for enterprises to process this data in the context of their business. A new version 6.0 of TIBCO Spotfire was released, featuring Spotfire Consumer, which presents up-to-date key performance indicators on a comprehensive range of mobile devices supporting capabilities such as offline KPI monitoring, contextual drill down and social collaboration. Additionally, Spotfire 6.0 includes, Spotfire Event Analytics, a new product that allows enterprises to automate the tracking and identification of new trends or outliers in business data, as they are generated.
"Historically big data has not focused on the operational outcomes that can greatly improve an organization's competitive landscape," said chief technology officer, TIBCO, Matt Quinn. "At TIBCO our focus is on making it as seamless and as efficient as possible for customers to access all their data – at rest and in-motion, giving them the power to quickly use that data to identify and address business problems and opportunities in the moment."
Expanded Alliance with PerkinElmer
TIBCO also announced it has expanded its relationship with PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment. The expanded alliance will allow customers to benefit from substantially larger investments in product and application development from PerkinElmer, fostering collaboration and integration between discovery research and clinical development.
"Through this expanded strategic relationship, we are very excited to offer scientists a complete package of data generation, data management, plus data analysis and visualization, so they can better harness information for more informed insights and decisions in the clinical space," said Mike Stapleton, general manager, informatics, PerkinElmer. "TIBCO Spotfire complements PerkinElmer's informatics offerings by adding search and data visualization, which are among life science laboratories’ most pressing business needs."
