A Process-oholic’s Guide to TIBCO NOW

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Earlier this year I came out as a Process-oholic and made some resolutions for 2016:

  1. Use my process powers only for good
  2. Bring process to the people
  3. Introduce the next generation of process to the next generation of people
  4. Explore process for the digital business transformation

I went silent a few weeks ago, but not because I had abandoned my resolutions. I have been working towards something colossal that is going to hit all four resolutions at once—all the process-related goodies at TIBCO NOW! What is a good process-oholic to do when they have information to impart? Map a process with TIBCO Nimbus Maps, of course!

Welcome to the Process-oholic’s guide to TIBCO NOW.

At a high level, it is pretty simple, but there is some complexity hiding in those innocent looking drill down arrows.

First, I suggest you check out the TIBCO NOW website for details on the agenda, speakers, sponsors, and events. There is a lot to see there, but I am sure you will like it and will move along in the process to “Logistics, Travel, and Planning.”

TN level 1

The real fun starts after you register for TIBCO NOW, and once you start creating your personalized agenda and meetings. There are so many great ways to interact with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). As the resident process-oholic, I happen to think that the TIBCO Process SMEs are the best ones to interact with (I am 100% biased, though).

Start your personalization right now by signing up for a Birds of a Feather gathering for your industry, or signing up for a one-on-one meeting with TIBCO Engineering or Dr. Spotfire at the Smart Bar.

Birds of a Feather flock together.

  • Digital Finance
  • Digital Insurance
  • Digital Retail & CPG
  • Digital Energy
  • Digital Airlines, Transportation & Logistics
  • Digital Healthcare
  • Digital BioTech & Pharma
  • More coming soon…

Join your flock for a meal to discuss relevant industry topics, network with your peers, and get advice from TIBCO subject matter experts.

Date and time for the sessions will be announced closer to the event. Space is limited and allocated on a first come, first serve basis, so register for a Birds of a Feather session ahead of time.

Once the TIBCO NOW app arrives in the App Store (stay tuned for that imminent announcement), you can create your personalized agenda from 100+ breakout sessions, 50+ customer sessions, and 20+ hands-on labs and architecture sessions.

You can look forward to some excellent process related sessions, such as:
