To meet growing customer and market demand for analytics, TIBCO Software Inc.

As part of this year's focus, analytics will take center stage at TUCON with customer keynotes, "big ideas" industry thought-leadership sessions, real-world usage tracks, case studies and commentary from industry luminaries.
