T-Systems to Resell and Market TIBCO's Enterprise Social Platform, tibbr to European Customers
TIBCO and T-Systems enter partnership to offer tibbr through T-Systems' infrastructure for a cloud-based, one-source, one-bill customer experience
TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) and T-Systems today announced an integrated cloud offering of tibbr®, the secure enterprise social networking platform developed by TIBCO – optimized for T-Systems' infrastructure, providing an intuitive, integrated experience for enterprise customers who rely on a single, trusted cloud aggregator for all their applications with a one-source, one-bill experience. This service is available throughout Europe and is initially targeted at Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
"Social networks are no longer just used to publicly share expertise, exchange information and network with other users. More and more, companies are opting for a secure social platform that can be used internally," says Jörg Jung, responsible for the global cloud go-to-market at T-Systems. "With TIBCO as our partner, we're able to join forces with the leading enterprise social player. The know-how that T-Systems contributes to the partnership in the areas of IT consulting and delivery of secure cloud infrastructure is key to success in the European market."
In their recently published "Social Business Vendor Benchmark 2014," IT market research company Experton Group listed T-Systems in the leading quadrant within the fields of social business integration and consulting. For the analysis, Experton Group compared 100 social business offerings from relevant German providers.
"We have joined forces with T-Systems to help European companies make it easier to deploy enterprise social networks in a one-source, one-bill customer experience," said Ram Menon, president, social computing, TIBCO.
TIBCO and T-Systems will be present at CeBIT 2014, (March 10-14) in Hannover, Germany. The TIBCO/T-Systems showcase for social business is located in Hall 4.
