Today, TIBCO’s flagship business process platform, ActiveMatrix BPM, turns 4 years old. Though introduced at TUCON 2010, ActiveMatrix BPM version 1.0.1 became generally available on the May 27, 2010 and started a new era of business process management for TIBCO.
It certainly feels a bit like my baby that is growing up too fast and has brought out the sentimental side of me. Looking back, I am happy to say it has been a fantastic four years and there have been many shining moments.
The Most Recent Being:
- We were recently named a “Leader” in business process platforms by IDC in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Business Process Platforms 2014 Vendor Assessment in May of 2014. In four short years this is an amazing achievement that makes me one proud “software mommy.”
- ActiveMatrix BPM was also the only “Leader” also considered to be a “Disruptive Innovator” in that same IDC MarketScape (and its companion detailed profile on TIBCO). Why? It demonstrates innovation and leadership by pushing the envelope of process automation in ways that broaden adoption and change the types of projects enterprises are able to do. This is a testament to our product goals and strategies, which I am sure makes our Director of BPM Strategy and Product Management Dr. Roger C. King a very proud “software daddy” today.
- The latest major release of ActiveMatrix BPM (version 3.0) debuted on May 15, 2014. This in an outstanding release and is a perfect topping to this celebratory occasion. ActiveMatrix BPM 3.0 is stronger and easier to use than ever before, and brings many new features and capabilities to both business and IT.

My toast to TIBCO’s BPM Engineering team, Dr. Roger C. King, and TIBCO’s BPM field group: Cheers to our 4th birthday! I hope all your joys are pure joy and all your pain champagne.
Since ActiveMatrix BPM isn’t quite old enough to drink champagne yet, I might get it a pony instead.
