TIBCO Prioritizes the Cloud with Debut of Two New Integration Platforms
New Solutions Enable Wide Range of Enterprises to Leverage the Cloud as They Make the Move to Digital Enterprises
TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration, analytics and event processing, today announced two newly built integration solutions designed to give organizations the ability to immediately leverage the cloud to create, test, deploy, and manage enterprise applications at any scale. The first solution, TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition, enables large businesses to gain all the value of cloud-based deployments and to achieve continuous delivery, while rapidly scaling to meet peak demands. The second solution, TIBCO® Cloud Integration, is a lightweight platform purpose-built for the cloud that features a streamlined user interface for API development. It's an integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) for easily creating, governing, and consuming services and APIs, with the added benefit that organizations can smoothly spin out those services internally and externally on demand. Both offerings advance TIBCO's vision of providing solutions designed for customers to quickly and easily leverage cloud technology.
"Integration is a critical capability of a digital business; it means being able to connect and engage on multiple channels," said Matt Quinn, chief technology officer, TIBCO. "Our 'Cloud First' approach is really about offering new consumption models for our customers, helping them access the value of the TIBCO® Fast Data platform in new ways. It also expands the types of users who can make use of our technologies by making it easier for users to create, configure, and deploy APIs. Combining these new capabilities with the recent addition of Mashery's market-leading API management solution, we now offer a whole new class of cloud integration."
TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition is a streamlined version of TIBCO's flagship product and is available as a buildpack for easy deployment, upgrading, and operating within the Pivotal Cloud Foundry™ environment. In instances where companies are dealing with regulatory requirements or sensitive data, this solution provides workload control flexibility, allowing the organization to provision information in a setting of their choosing, from on-premises to hybrid cloud.
Other notable benefits of TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition:
- Simplicity – users can easily provision to a Cloud Foundry environment with just a few commands, radically reducing deployment times to just a few minutes;
- Flexibility – the platform can operate in different environments, irrespective of the infrastructure that it is running on; and
- Greater control – organizations wanting to maintain jurisdiction over their cloud environments can now move that responsibility in-house.
“Enterprise demand for rapid development of applications that deliver new customer experiences quickly and at-scale continues to grow," said James Watters, vice president and general manager, Cloud Platform Group at Pivotal. "We are very pleased that TIBCO recognizes Pivotal Cloud Foundry as the platform of choice for running modern, cloud-native applications. With the availability of TIBCO BusinessWorks on Pivotal Cloud Foundry, our joint customers can confidently invest in developing the next generation of applications for the cloud."
TIBCO Cloud Integration is designed to offer mid-market businesses integration functionality via the cloud. In cases where departments are seeking to rapidly create and deploy APIs, developers can build and test these services without having to involve overburdened IT staff.
Other notable benefits of TIBCO Cloud Integration:
- Versatility – organizations can choose to use it as a standalone product or as part of a hybrid integration solution; and
- Cost-effectiveness – the platform is a subscription-based service, which reduces upfront capital investments and enables rapid startup.
TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition will be generally available in Q4 2015. TIBCO Cloud Integration will be available in November through TIBCO's early adopters program. To inquire about program participation, please visit the website: http://cloud.tibco.com
