Industry Perspectives

A room full of financial services business leaders and technologists launched TIBCO NOW San Diego this morning. Few industries have seen as much disruption as financial services. TIBCO and financial service industry experts discussed the historic digital shift and the smart paths to leadership. Digital leaders must understand consumer trends analytically, use powerful technologies to enable shifting channels, and continuously improve customer experience and loyalty. The experts discussed this historic digital shift and the smart paths to leadership. Tom Dadmun of PointFocal joined the session to explain how TIBCO Spotfire helped identify future negative explosions in the business, and helped avoid them.

Next door in the Industry 4.0 session, Ahmer Srivastava of Western Digital joined TIBCO to talk about the transforming manufacturing landscape. Western Digital shared their secret to becoming leaders in manufacturing: Spotfire analytics!

When is the last time you booked a trip through a travel agency? The travel and tourism industry is seeing major digital transformation, leading to improved customer experiences, more efficient operations, reduced disruptions, and optimized staff performance. Mike Schuman of United Airlines Companies shared how their journey toward digital transformation has improved flight operations, baggage movement, and more. Attendees saw first hand the difference United is making through proactive baggage tracking, and discovered how to unleash the true value in their data to stay competitive and drive innovation.
