TIBCO Software Redefines Social Computing for Business
Enterprise-ready tibbr Breaks Conventional Model, Allows Information to Find You; tibbr to Supercharge Productivity at CIBER, Inc.
SAN FRANCISCO, January 24, 2011 - TIBCO Software Inc. [NASDAQ: TIBX] today announced the general availability of tibbr®. This groundbreaking platform for the workplace is the first social computing tool that allows employees, customers and partners to interact with each other – and with information and events generated by their enterprise IT systems.
tibbr builds on TIBCO's decade of experience of providing mission-critical software that allows organizations to connect enterprise systems for real-time communication. Is a shipment running late? Has a purchase order been signed by the customer? By linking key applications, systems and business processes, tibbr makes following contextually relevant information as easy as following a co-worker in the next cubicle.
tibbr breaks business users free from one-dimensional social tools that focus on people by allowing information to be organized by subject or topic. tibbr enables users to create, contribute to, and subscribe to the real-time event streams that matter most to them. By using tibbr's highly customizable subject structure and classification system, companies can build a hierarchy and information model that works best for them. tibbr users can also subscribe to feeds from external programs such as, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google Alerts.
tibbr offers unparalleled flexibility in the delivery and consumption of information by allowing users to select the form, frequency and manner in which they want to receive updates. Those updates are then delivered at the requested time, to the chosen device or interface, and set in the appropriate context.
Fully functional interfaces are available as native applications on all major mobile computing platforms, including Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, and iPad.
CIBER [NYSE: CBR], a global information technology consulting, services and outsourcing company, will deploy tibbr across its 8,000 employees to enable mission-critical enterprise applications, systems and people to follow and communicate with each other in real time.
"We know from working with our clients how important social media is becoming for the enterprise. But social business software has to be rugged and enterprise-ready, it can't be reworked versions of consumer apps. With tibbr, applications and processes can communicate with your workforce in real time. And this unique approach frees you from having to log in every time you need an update so you can take action the moment an event occurs regardless of where you are," says Jon Scarpelli, Vice President of Technology, CIBER.
"tibbr allows social computing to finally get down to business," said Ram Menon, Executive Vice President, TIBCO Software Inc. "Its unique approach turns the entire business social, supercharging productivity throughout the workforce, not just the sales force."
