TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) has once again been recognized by the independent analyst group Yphise as providing the best Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) solution. TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks™ was named to the top of the Yphise list.

In making this announcement, Yphise certified that the TIBCO solution has the strengths that represent a valuable investment based on expected benefits by large companies, using an ISO 9001:2000-certified assessment. Yphise came to this conclusion through an examination of four key factors:

  • Aligning the services with business needs in an agile fashion
  • Ensuring service reliability when changes are implemented
  • The ability to increase service performance and robustness during operation
  • Connecting services for extended business

These four dimensions aggregate more than 150 functional or technical assessment items, as part of the effort by Yphise to make recommendations aimed at identifying the best software products that optimize IT cost, value and risk.

According the Yphise executive report issued: "TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks provides the best coverage of our list of requirements. It stands out in our four dimensions. This highlights its maturity and reliability in terms of investing in this market segment. This confirms the previous ranking by Yphise of the TIBCO solution as the best ESB solution in the marketplace in 2007."

"This recognition by Yphise demonstrates the business value of TIBCO's sustained, continuous efforts with ESB," said Fabio Pulidori, senior vice president for EMEA at TIBCO. "By continuing to drive innovation in the ESB space, we have enabled many global organizations to accelerate their goal of building an enterprise-ready SOA."
