TIBCO Identified as a Leader in Business Process Platforms by Independent Research Firm



05 July, 2011


TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) has been named as a leader in IDC's 2011 ‘MarketScape: Business Process Platforms' assessment, receiving top scores for its overall product capabilities, technology platform, platform strategy and development environment.

Business Process Management (BPM) enables enterprises to understand, automate and optimize critical processes, allowing them to operate faster, more reliably and efficiently, reducing the time it takes to deliver new products or services and improving customer service levels. For many organizations, BPM is a key source of differentiation and competitive advantage in today's increasingly competitive, commoditized and regulated global business environment.

IDC's report presents an assessment of leading Business Process Platform vendors' offerings, using a balanced group of criteria to rate the strength of their respective strategies - including portfolio differentiation and innovation - and capabilities, including strength of technical platform and business level functionality.

Alongside top scores for its business process platform strategy, product capabilities, technology platform and development environment, TIBCO also received a high score for innovation, based on its strategy of building its business process layer on top of its services platform, and also rated above-average for its ability to help customers manage their costs through the use of BPM software.
