TIBCO Positioned in the "Leaders" Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic Application Integration Projects

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute



27 October, 2010


TIBCO Software Inc. [NASDAQ:TIBX] today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders" quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic Application Integration Projects."

According to the report: "Leaders are vendors with a proven and comprehensive integrated product set, as well as a sizable installed base of reasonably satisfied clients that extends internationally. Leaders have an ample installed base of products to cross-sell their integration solutions to, and have demonstrated their ability to anticipate technology and market trends over the years by extending their offerings to support the data consistency, multistep process and composite application integration styles that occur in systematic A2A and B2B integration projects. Leaders manifest their understanding of the problem space by providing innovative features, and by extending their integration technology in a manner that supports near-neighbour initiatives like SOA and BPM."

With enterprises having to manage complex IT environments, organizations are increasingly turning to application integration products that are well-proven, modern, standards-compliant, and operate in a heterogeneous environment such as the TIBCO ActiveMatrix®, TIBCO BusinessEvents™, and TIBCO Silver™ product portfolios.

"We are pleased with being placed in the 'leaders' quadrant and believe this is a reflection of TIBCO's broad market understanding, innovation, and product strategy," said Rourke McNamara, senior director of product marketing, TIBCO. "The constant refinement and innovation of our infrastructure solutions, such as providing a truly unified platform, support for new open standards, and cloud-based application integration, continues to create mainstream appeal and greater demand for our software platform across industry, geography, and product line."
