TIBCO's Integrated SOA Governance Portfolio Ensures the Effective and Efficient Use of SOA for the Greatest Return on Investment



31 October, 2011


TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders" quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for SOA Governance Technologies." The evaluation of TIBCO in this Magic Quadrant is based on "ability to execute" and "completeness of vision."

"TIBCO has been a market leader in SOA and SOA Governance Technologies for quite some time, and we believe Gartner's latest report confirms our ability to meet growing customer demands on getting the greatest return on investment from their SOA projects," said Ivan Casanova, director, product marketing, TIBCO. "On the heels of being named one of the top five 2010 market share leaders in SOA Governance based on total software revenue from Gartner, our integrated SOA governance portfolio continues to deliver value with end-to-end governance across the entire service lifecycle, including design, development, testing, deployment, maintenance, and retirement."

According to Gartner: "As service-oriented architecture becomes mainstream and takes on different names, the importance of SOA governance and the technologies related to it keep increasing. The market for SOA governance technologies keeps changing, driven by more comprehensive requirements from end users."

With growth in SOA Governance revenue of over 70 percent year on year between 2009 and 2010, TIBCO offers an integrated portfolio that comprehensively governs all business services from design-time to run-time, and includes proactive performance and health monitoring of IT and business services.
