TIBCO Named a Leader for Comprehensive Integration Solutions

TIBCO Software's CIS Provides Strong SOA, BPM, and Application Development Features



09 December, 2010


TIBCO Software Inc. [NASDAQ:TIBX] today announced that it has been named a Leader in the November 2010 report by Forrester Research, Inc., The Forrester Wave™: Comprehensive Integration Solutions, Q4 2010.* The evaluation of TIBCO in this report is based on current offering, strategy, and market presence.

According to the report: "To determine the state of the CIS market and compare how vendors stack up against each other, Forrester evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of top CIS vendors that are capable of meeting a wide range of enterprise integration needs." According to Forrester: "TIBCO Software's CIS provides strong SOA, BPM, and application development features. TIBCO Software's ActiveMatrix Platform combines the features of TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks with TIBCO BPM Enterprise (a near-total rewrite of its BPM solution obtained via the acquisition of Staffware in 2004). TIBCO Software also recently acquired the Proginet MFT solutions, which it will be incorporating into the BusinessWorks solution set."

"We are very pleased to be placed as a leader by Forrester in the CIS Wave for the fourth year in a row," said Rourke McNamara, senior director of product marketing, TIBCO. "We believe TIBCO's recent acquisitions over the last 12 months also demonstrate our increased level of investment in Comprehensive Integration Solutions by adding market leading Managed File Transfer and EDI Transaction Modernization solutions to our growing portfolio of business solutions."

While CIS covers a very broad range of capabilities ranging from application integration, composite application building, business process management, enterprise service bus, and Service Oriented Architecture governance—TIBCO offers all of these capabilities in a universal application platform that leverages a single runtime container, single design environment and unified administrative console. This unified environment helps reduce complexity, simplify deployment and speed time to market for delivering innovative business services and business processes to help IT maintain pace with changing business requirements.
