“This year’s Lighthouse Award winners demonstrate how to leverage the limitless power of data as a strategic differentiator,” said Dan Streetman, Chief Executive Officer, TIBCO. “These exceptional companies and individuals are gaining real strategic advantage through their innovation and creativity, and we’re proud to provide the platform and solutions that are enabling them to succeed.”
Award recipients are recognized for accomplishing tangible and substantial business results using TIBCO technologies, demonstrating ingenuity and thought leadership in meeting the demands of the digital economy, and exemplifying the impact of the TIBCO Connected Intelligence platform.
Limitless Innovation Award
GM Financial, the wholly-owned captive finance subsidiary of General Motors, is the winner of the Limitless Innovation Lighthouse Award. A longtime TIBCO Connect customer, GM Financial sought better access to its data, deploying TIBCO Unify technology for prototyping, operational analytics, and rapid access to new data. This reduced initial requirements and design time for partners by an estimated 40 to 60 percent, virtually eliminating the need for rework and change requests in the development cycle. With TIBCO, acquiring new data sources and exposing them for analysis has been reduced from weeks and months down to hours or days.
Social Impact Award
Hospital Universitario Lucus Augusti (HULA), a regional hospital in Spain, is the winner of the Social Impact Lighthouse Award. With TIBCO LABS, HULA used a process mining tool to gain insight into diagnostic protocols and early detection methods; doctors at HULA are reducing costs and saving patient lives with faster times to diagnosis and earlier intervention.
Customer Intimacy Award
Shinhan Bank, a major commercial bank in South Korea, is the winner of the Customer Intimacy Lighthouse Award. The bank provides retail, corporate, and investment banking services to over 25 million customers. As digital experiences increased, Shinhan had to optimize customer touchpoints online. TIBCO Connect and Predict solutions now bring together more than 20 different customer channels, including its banking desk, core banking app, internet banking, call center, and kiosks. This allows Shinhan Bank to identify real-time patterns across all customer and account events, understand customer sentiments across all interactions, and analyze data to deliver hyper-personalized experiences.
Operational Excellence Award
Petrobras, one of the largest producers of oil and gas in the world, is the winner of the Operational Excellence Lighthouse Award. With a daily output of 2.84 million barrels of oil equivalent and over 5,600 production wells, Petrobras was overwhelmed by massive amounts of well log data. Using TIBCO technology, the company developed a custom data analytics solution with grab-and-go capabilities. The new analytics platform allows it to lower costs by reducing reservoir exploration time—replacing multiple highly specialized applications with TIBCO Predict solutions and reducing geological risks of off-shore exploration.
Jean-Marc Viallatte, Group Vice President of Global Supply Chain at Arkema, is the winner of the Visionary Lighthouse Award. Arkema is a specialty chemicals and advanced materials company based in France that manufactures technical polymers, additives, resins, and adhesives. Led by Viallatte, the company deployed TIBCO Unify technology to revolutionize the company’s data assets across customer, vendor, and material domains. With Viallatte’s supply chain team acting as a “control tower” for these crucial data flows, Arkema leverages APIs to feed master supply chain data to downstream business systems. The team now shares standardized and accurate data widely across the organization, layering a common data framework into an ever-expanding list of products and ensuring every system deployed pulls from the trusted master data hub.
TIBCO Legend Award
Ahmer Srivastava, Director of Memory Product Solutions for Analytics and Software Applications at Western Digital, is the winner of the TIBCO Legend Lighthouse Award. Western Digital is a leading global manufacturer of data storage products, driving innovation to help customers capture, pressure, and transform data. Srivastava sought to modernize this process with the help of TIBCO—building a powerful AI/ML platform. As a business leader at Western Digital, and in partnership with TIBCO and his teammates, Srivastava continues to drive data science, visual analytics, and smart factory innovation in his industry and among his peers.
