TIBCO Software Inc. [NASDAQ: TIBX] today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Harte-Hanks Trillium Software® to help organizations eliminate information quality errors, become efficient in their business activities, and accelerate critical processes such as a new product launch, vendor on-boarding or customer cross-sell/up-sell.

Combining TIBCO's master data management (MDM) software with Trillium Software's information quality solution provides customers with the rigorous data quality and data profiling capabilities needed to solve their complex master data quality challenges.

The newly combined technology platform delivers a comprehensive, integrated solution that can enable enterprises to:

  • reduce costs through automation, efficiency, and information accuracy, as well as increase revenue through improved cross-sell, up-sell, targeting, and service;
  • modernize their businesses and optimize overall performance and results by dramatically improving and verifying the critical data flowing through key business processes and transactions; and
  • accelerate time-to-market and time-to-shelf for product introductions, resulting in increased market share and higher margins.
