With tibbr, users can collaborate to break down the walls that divide people and widen the scope and power of how information finds you.

More than 2,700 entries from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration across more than 40 categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Corporate Environmental Responsibility Program of the Year.

"At TIBCO, we strive to conceptualize, build and deliver solutions that reshape and better the way businesses operate," said Ram Menon, executive vice president, worldwide marketing, TIBCO Software Inc. "We are honored tibbr has been recognized by the American Business Awards for introducing an innovative and more productive way to work and approach data."

Members of the Awards' Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and specialized final judging committees will select Stevie Award winners from among Finalists in final judging that continued through May 28.

This year's Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Monday, June 21 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.
