The annual TIBCO user conference (TUCON) is set to take place in just a few weeks. TIBCO aficionados will be flocking to Las Vegas to share their ideas and best practices around TIBCO software integration. Attendees will use this experience to apply their learnings to their integration implementation projects, some of which are mission critical within their organizations.
Henri den Hollander, solution architect at NXP Semiconductors, attended TUCON last year and said, “TUCON is always very inspiring to me. Interacting with the customers and partners of TIBCO has helped me in understanding the best practices and solutions that are being implemented. We do not want to reinvent the wheel and I think it’s very useful information that you can gather here. I really like the TUCON experience; this is not my first time, and I look forward to coming back.”
Enabling a Change with TIBCO
For more than a decade, NXP has been using TIBCO software to connect corporate applications, as well as to provide the mechanism for these applications to be connected with all manufacturing sites. NXP created a B2B platform that ensured a streamlined communication process. By creating a solid and cohesive communication channel, they were able to manage foundries and subcontractors more efficiently and consistently. Additionally, they provide the operational support staff visibility to events, which assists in preventing or solving problems within the system via the ESB. To innovate they use TIBCO software to ensure they become an event-enabled enterprise. This will allow them to focus on other key business initiatives like improving business processes and flexible reporting.
NXP has benefited by cutting costs and providing a simpler platform that is easier to maintain and support. The messaging framework built by TIBCO is helping NXP gain a clearer insight into what is occurring at the operational level. A support person now has real-time information and can prevent or solve any problem before business users notice, or before it can negatively impact business in a major way. One thing is certain: as Henri said, “IT and business users are coming closer and we are enabling this change with the help of TIBCO.”
Analytics and Visualization Strategy for Multiple Data Sources
Henri den Hollander will be at TUCON again this year, presenting a session on Wednesday, October 16, from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm PDT. In this session you’ll learn how NXP implemented TIBCO Spotfire® to analyze quotation, sales, and financial data, thus enabling them to successfully manage the margin on sales deals with distributors and OEMs. The session will provide an overview of the implementation, as well as issues they encountered when rolling out an analytics platform across a global organization (while using data from SAP R/3, SAP BW, Salesforce.com, and relational databases).
