TIBCO Software to Present at The Economist's Ideas Economy: Information Event
Palo Alto, Calif., June 04, 2012 - TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced that Matthew Quinn, chief technology officer, will present at The Economist's second annual Ideas Economy: Information event being held June 5-6, 2012, at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, Calif.
Quinn's session, titled "The Quant's Quant," will be held on Wednesday, June 6, at 4:15 p.m. PT and cover how big data is reinventing global finance. He will be joined by Chief Executive Spencer Greenberg of Rebellion Research and interviewed by Data Editor Kenneth Cukier of The Economist.
The Economist's Ideas Economy: Information event will explore big data and the next generation of smart systems—the networks of chips, sensors, wireless technologies and intelligent software—that are converging to link the physical and virtual worlds and transform the global economy. The evolution of smart systems presents incredible opportunities—stronger companies, faster medicine, and safer neighborhoods—but just as many challenges. Privacy, security and intellectual property protection are perpetual worries, made even more challenging as more data are sent all over the world and through ever more people and machines. Without intelligent planning and successful partnerships, these can create huge problems for individuals and companies as well as regulatory challenges for governments.
