TIBCO's tibbr Chosen by CIBER Inc. as Social Computing Software for the Enterprise
As part of TIBCO's five-city global product launch, CIBER, Inc., (NYSE: CBR) announced today in London its selection of tibbr™, the next-generation productivity and collaboration tool for the enterprise.
CIBER decided on tibbr – after having researched other social tools available on the market – because tibbr goes beyond connecting people. Taking advantage of TIBCO's experience, tibbr allows employees, customers and partners to interact with each other – and with information and events generated by their enterprise IT systems.
In the London keynote presentation today, CIBER Vice President of Technology Jon Scarpelli will describe how the commitment to tibbr coincides with a major transformation to becoming a globally driven organization. With thousands of employees interacting in sophisticated technology practices, CIBER will harness valuable intellectual capital through the use of tibbr enterprise computing technology. CIBER expects the energy and velocity of social media and tibbr's unique features to help drive this transformation.
According to Scarpelli, "CIBER turned to tibbr because it allows workers to not only follow people, but also the subjects that are important to them. CIBER is deploying tibbr to support our strategy to increase intellectual capital capture throughout the organization, with collaboration that can occur among a small group of colleagues or across divisional and geographic boundaries."
CIBER will deploy tibbr across its 8,000 employees to enable mission-critical enterprise applications, systems and people to follow and communicate with each other in real time. tibbr offers mobility on major mobile platforms which is important for CIBER because its consultants are often travelling, or spread across client sites and development centers, relying on mobile devices for communication and collaboration.
Ram Menon, TIBCO's Executive Vice President said, "What we're hearing among leading enterprise-class companies is that social tools lack tibbr's deep integration capabilities. Marrying social software with enterprise infrastructure capabilities spurs better communication with key applications, systems and processes critical to running a business, while enabling collaboration and sharing among people too."
