TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced that Boris Evelson, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research, Inc., will be featured in a TIBCO Spotfire® hosted webcast titled "Enabling Agile Business Intelligence Through Self-Service and Collaboration," on Tuesday, November 29, 2011. During the complimentary webcast, Mr. Evelson will discuss the traditional business intelligence (BI) landscape, the best approaches for deploying BI solutions, and how agile BI can specifically lead to more successful BI applications.

What/When: "Enabling Agile Business Intelligence Through Self-Service and Collaboration" webcast – Tuesday, November 29 at 1:00 p.m. EST/10 a.m. PST.

Business Intelligence is no longer just a "nice to have" back-office reporting and querying application, as the majority of businesses now view BI as a key competitive differentiator. Today, most products and services in the global economy become commoditized, and businesses are competing more and more just on information. By obtaining better insights into how their customers and products are performing, organizations then have the ability to make better and faster decisions. However, earlier generation BI technologies are complex and expensive, leading to heavy IT involvement, protracted deployment cycles with costly ongoing IT support and unclear ROI.

Agile BI, which Forrester defines as "an approach that combines processes, methodologies, organizational structure, tools, and technologies that enable strategic, tactical, and operational decision-makers to be more flexible and more responsive to the fast pace of business and regulatory requirement changes," addresses these concerns with multiple technologies, including a better capability for end users to self-service most of their BI requirements.

During the webcast, attendees will learn:

  • Why earlier generation BI is complex and costly;
  • How agile BI can propel you to less expensive and more successful BI applications;
  • What approaches and technologies are necessary for deploying BI solutions where business users can fulfill the majority of new and ongoing requirements on their own; and
  • Why in-memory architecture and collaborative functionality are both key components to successful agile BI applications.
