In addition, the company announced TIBCO Silver® Fabric 5.0, the latest version of the company's cloud platform that enables a new Platform-as-a-Service operations model that will radically simplify the provisioning and management of enterprise software platforms, and provides the foundation for groundbreaking operational agility.

The rapid transition to mobile technologies and its potential to improve customer service, increase business productivity, and seize new revenue opportunities, is transforming businesses at every level. Add the power and promise of cloud technology to the user-driven "BYOD" revolution, and enterprises can increase access to big data, extend the value of enterprise applications, and put decision-making in the hands of business users, partners and customers anywhere, anytime and on any device – all while reducing costs and strain on IT resources.

"Mobile devices have changed the way employees work, and enterprises realize they need to very quickly develop and deploy mission-critical mobile apps that can improve productivity and give employees secure, real-time access to corporate information," said Matt Quinn, CTO, TIBCO Software. "TIBCO Silver Mobile 1.0 is a breakthrough in mobile platform development that enables the enterprise to develop device strategies that are critical to attracting mobile-centric customers and employees."

Event-Enabling Mobile Devices

The advanced capabilities of the TIBCO Silver Platform help enterprises benefit from the consumerization of IT which has helped create a more user-driven, collaborative IT environment where the relationship between people and knowledge is decentralized, mobilized, and takes place in real time. With the release of TIBCO Silver Mobile, enterprises can extend their critical business applications and processes to mobile users, on the device of their choosing. Developers can better marry the agility of the cloud with enterprise-class software infrastructure platforms, enterprise security and oversight, while benefiting from a user-centric platform that enables faster development across devices. End users, whether working on a browser, tablet or phone, will have business-strength applications – made for mobile – on their mobile devices, that help them stay productive and connected.

TIBCO Silver Mobile provides a number of benefits:

"Private clouds are most enterprises' answer to fear, uncertainty, and doubt about the security of public clouds. Cloud solutions implemented on-premises promise to capture the cost-efficiency of cloud computing without the risks of public clouds." – John R. Rymer, VP and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, "Achieve Cloud Economics for Operations and Services," May 2, 2012, Forrester Research.

"Partnering with TIBCO enables Quartet FS' analytical in-memory DBMS 'ActivePivot' to operate in distributed environments in optimum conditions, with lower risk of failover and decreased administration costs for our customers," said Georges Bory, co-founder and managing director of Quartet FS. "Joint customers can implement large deployments with confidence that the solution will keep up with data volumes, velocity and variety, and that it will be available and resilient at any time."
