TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX), a global leader in infrastructure and business intelligence software, today announced that a free license of TIBCO Spotfire® Cloud visual data analytics software is enabling not-for-profit organization SumAll.org to glean valuable humanitarian and human trafficking insights, and accurately communicate information around the world, in real time.



"TIBCO's core mission is to help make the world a better place through technology," said Lori Wright, chief marketing officer, TIBCO. "Working with organizations like SumAll.org to address serious issues allows us to make a global impact for the greater good. There is a challenge in identifying and communicating complex data to a distributed audience quickly, but Spotfire Cloud allows those who need the information to receive it in a way that they can clearly see and understand. By being able to rapidly mine and disseminate this data, we're hoping it will increase public understanding and support for sensitive issues around the world."



With the help of Spotfire Cloud, SumAll.org has been able to present ongoing insights of current international conflicts to leading news media in the U.S., Europe and Middle East. This data helps journalists detect underlying trends earlier, such as the growth of female war casualties or unreported mass killings. SumAll.org is also working with a major publication to co-create a significant infographic release based on the data.

"We are excited to work with TIBCO to help us achieve real-life impact and data-driven social innovation," said Stefan Heeke, executive director, SumAll.org. "Having access to TIBCO's enterprise-level Spotfire solution helps SumAll.org better explore the story hidden in the data and communicate it clearly to stakeholders and the public."

TIBCO recently launched its cloud-based version of the TIBCO Spotfire®data discovery and visualization platform, TIBCO Spotfire Cloud. The industry-leading provider of enterprise analytics software for business intelligence is now offered with the ease, speed and cost-effectiveness of the cloud. TIBCO Spotfire Cloud makes it easy to share insights on the Web, with unlimited public sharing.
