ThyssenKrupp Steel Achieves ISO 9001 Certification More Quickly with TIBCO Nimbus Control

Palo Alto, Calif


04 May, 2012


TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today congratulates ThyssenKrupp Steel USA for achieving international certification for its state-of-the-art quality management operations powered by innovative technologies such as TIBCO Nimbus Control®.

ThyssenKrupp Steel USA has invested nearly $5 billion to create one of the world's most technologically advanced carbon steel processing facilities in Calvert, Alabama. The company says the facility is crucial to ThyssenKrupp'sglobal expansion, serving the high-value American market.

ThyssenKrupp Steel USA uses TIBCO Nimbus Control to "power" the quality management system. This unique business process management (BPM) application makes it easier to capture, manage and deploy operational processes and supporting information to all employees. It's therefore possible for employees to more easily and quickly find, understand and adhere to the processes, policies and compliance obligations related to their work. TIBCO Nimbus Control makes communication of process change easier and quicker; whether that's "bottom-up" suggestions of improvements by employees, or "top-down" communication of change from managers. TIBCO Nimbus Control has audit, remediation and reporting capabilities built in to aid any organization which needs to pass audit with respect to quality or compliance obligations.

Commenting on ThyssenKrupp Steel USA's success, Raj Verma, vice president, Worldwide Marketing at TIBCO said, "What ThyssenKrupp Steel USA has achieved in a short space of time is actually amazing. Most organizations seeking ISO 9001 accreditation will be comparatively mature, with settled processes and long term employees. But what we had here was a new operation, new employees and new manufacturing plant coming on line while the company was preparing for certification. This was possible because they were able to engage the whole workforce in process excellence."

ThyssenKrupp Steel USA was granted ISO 9001:2008 certification after an intensive audit from accredited registrar firm TUV Rheinland of North America Inc.

The announcement came one week after sister company, ThyssenKrupp Stainless USA, received its own ISO 9001:2008 certification. They use Nimbus Control as their BPM and Quality Management system. For more details please visit:
