KPMG and CargoSmart Share How They're Transforming Their Businesses with Enterprise Social Computing at TUCON

Palo Alto, Calif.


23 September, 2011


TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced that KPMG and CargoSmart will share how they're deriving business value from the adoption of enterprise social computing tools inside their companies at TUCON, TIBCO's customer and partner conference that will be held in Las Vegas next week. By intelligently mapping enterprise social tools to the business processes, systems and culture their organizations already have in place, these companies are better connecting their employees with the right people and information at the right time.

During TUCON, held from September 26 to September 29, "Social in the Enterprise" sessions will also include speakers from Apache Corp., CIBER and Pike Electronics. These organizations will share their strategies for generating relevant, company-wide conversations in context, enabling their companies to eliminate knowledge silos and make faster, better decisions.

In addition to these customer-led use cases, guest speakers and industry thought leaders Rob Koplowitz of Forrester Research, Inc. and Ray Wang of Constellation Research will lead a discussion about how 21st century enterprises are embracing social technologies to foster competitive advantage.

"With social computing, we're looking to flatten our organization, make it less hierarchical and retain a 21st century workforce that expects these tools when they come into the office everyday," says Chris Robinison, CIO of KPMG Australia, who will speak at TUCON. "At the same time, we only want to deliver social computing tools that match the high standards for security and compliance that's inherent in the advisory business."

"[tibbr] built a product that works," says Forrester's Rob Koplowitzi, vice president and principal analyst on the Forrester Research Blog. "Customers are able to get up and running at large scale quickly and with few issues. They made the product relevant to information workers. With a very simple and familiar interface, Tibco has built something that knowledge workers are willing to use."
