Governments and NGOs have been asked to do more in collaboration and process optimization with less. An optimal approach is to try to increase the speed of information flow, break down walls and silos, accelerate innovation, and increase productivity. Due to concerns about security and related processes, these organizations were traditionally slow to adopt the newer collaboration tools that could most effectively help with those challenges.
“Recent U.S. government incidents regarding the improper sharing of confidential information via email has caused several agencies to reevaluate their information governance processes,” said Alan Lepofsky, VP and Principal Analyst, Future of Work, Constellation Research. “Enterprise social networks provide a valid alternative, but only a few products have achieved the required FedRAMP certification.”
TIBCO’s tibbr is one of the few enterprise collaboration platforms that has been FedRamp certified. FedRamp is the United States’ government’s Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program—a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
TIBCO tibbr: Collaboration platform of choice for security-conscious organizations
With over 6 million users at hundreds of organizations globally, including government agencies and NGOs, tibbr is a collaboration platform that provides a 360-degree view of the discussions and information important to your users, with flexible and secure permission controls.
Far more than just a linear stream of messages common in today’s messaging applications, tibbr connects content, context, and collective intelligence across all your channels. Those channels can be integrated document management, activity feeds, meeting and video conferencing applications, tasks and project plans, and more. This way, knowledge spreads to where it’s needed, and work happens faster—from anywhere.
And as was first shared last year, tibbr is one of the only enterprise collaboration platforms to receive FedRamp certification, positioning it to meet the strict data privacy and security needs of government agencies, both in the cloud and on-premise.
Examples of NGOs and government organizations using tibbr
Here are a just few examples of the many governments and NGOs across the world that have chosen tibbr for its combination of capabilities, security, deployment flexibility, and customizability:
United States Agency for International Development (USAID)—USAID uses tibbr as their next-generation social intranet that connects field staff with headquarters leadership, to better communicate and partner in achieving their goals of ending extreme poverty and promoting the development of resilient, democratic societies.
Doctors Without Borders (MSF)—Médecins Sans Frontières, also known as Doctors Without Borders, is an international humanitarian non-governmental organization best known for its projects in war-torn regions and developing countries affected by endemic diseases. MSF uses tibbr to more quickly respond to disasters and humanitarian conflicts by better leveraging their experience and knowledge.
National Health Services (NHS England)—NHS is the publicly funded national healthcare system for England. It is the largest and the oldest single-payer healthcare system in the world. NHS has used tibbr to build their Better Care Exchange, which is an online secure community of health care professionals to work together more effectively and deliver better care to more people throughout England.
Mexico Federal Election Institute (IFE)—The IFE was set up as an independent authority to manage the federal elections of the President and members of the Lower and Upper House. IFE was impressed with the depth and flexibility of the security components of tibbr, given their special requirements.
Victoria State Emergency Services (VIC SES)—Victoria State Emergency Service is the control agency for flood, storm, tsunami, and earthquake in Victoria, Australia. VIC SES has used tibbr to more strategically coordinate planning and response to natural disasters, leveraging the rich functionality and easy-to-use interface of the tibbr mobile.
Interport Police—InterPort Police is a global law enforcement association. Its officers at airports and seaports all over the country are out in the field 90% of the day, so InterPortPolice uses the tibbr mobile app to push critical, location-based information to the right officer at the right time. As explained by Jay Grant, Secretary General Chief Executive of Interport, “tibbr goes beyond basic social communication—it is secure, mobile and integrates updates from various law enforcement systems.”
