TIBCO NOW 2020 was a fantastic example of a work hard, play hard mindset in action with numerous learning opportunities as well as happy hours, tea vs. coffee debates, and yoga breaks. The TIBCO4Good™ initiative embodies this spirit as well, taking our hard work and expertise and empowering employees to engage in rewarding, inspiring community initiatives.
The mission of TIBCO4Good is to help communities solve meaningful human challenges with technology, contributing software, training, expertise, and strategic guidance to partner organizations and communities in need. Below are some of our favorite TIBCO4Good stories that are making that vision a reality, as shared during TIBCO NOW.
TIBCO4Good Sessions at TIBCO NOW:
- COVID-19 Visual Analytics Hub: In March, the TIBCO data science team built a hub of visual and predictive analytics to help communities track the coronavirus current outbreak status, growth trajectories, rate of spread, effects of interventions, and healthcare resources. At TIBCO NOW, the team demonstrated how this interactive Spotfire application pulls together data from various sources from around the world, unites them, and transforms them with data science to make predictions in real time.
To see other use cases where visual analytics, data science, and data management are put into action to solve hard business problems, watch this TIBCO NOW session on Hyperconverged Analytics in Operations with TIBCO Chief Analytics Officer Micheal O’Connell. Also, join Mr. O’Connell and global health leaders for a lively panel discussion on how healthcare organizations can utilize analytics to manage the impacts from the pandemic.
- TIBCO GatherSmart & Dartmouth College: Using TIBCO GatherSmart™, an AI-powered monitoring solution for businesses and communities to control the further spread of COVID-19, Dartmouth College is working to create a responsible environment for those returning to work and to learn. Dartmouth will leverage TIBCO’s powerful analytics tools to organize its multiple-sourced COVID-19 data, enabling the institution to act quickly and limit exposure on campus. Join this TIBCO NOW fireside chat with Dartmouth College CIO Mitch Davis and TIBCO CTO Nelson Petracek, talking about preparing for and thriving in a COVID-19 era.
- City Harvest London: City Harvest London’s mission was never in doubt — feeding the hungry by collecting and transporting unused, quality food. But COVID-19 nearly shut down a critical service at a time when food insecurity became more dire than ever. Collaborating with TIBCO Labs and TIBCO4Good, City Harvest built a cloud-based platform for connecting supply and demand, optimizing logistics, and successfully scaling to meet unprecedented demand. Watch this TIBCO NOW session to hear City Harvest CEO Laura Winningham and TIBCO SVP for Connect Randy Menon discuss the successful City Harvest London and TIBCO partnership.
Also, coming soon TIBCO4Good is teaming up with our Microsoft friends to help map the most vulnerable communities around the world. Together we are partnering with a wonderful organization called Missing Maps, aiming to put 200 million people “on the map” by 2021.
Here at TIBCO, we recognize the importance of giving back and enjoy putting our passion for innovative technologies to good use. To get involved in any of our ongoing TIBCO4Good projects, head to tibco.com/tibco4good to learn more.
