21 December, 2015


TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration, analytics, and event processing, has received a 2015 Dresner Advisory Services Technology Innovation Award as a leader in Location Intelligence.

The Dresner Advisory Services Technology Innovation Awards identify leaders drawn from several 2015 Wisdom of Crowds® thematic market studies. The awards are based on end-user data collected on usage and deployment trends, products, and vendors, and provide a real-world view into the business intelligence (BI) and analytics industries.

The flagship Technology Innovation Award program highlights top vendors in eight categories. The Location Intelligence award is described as a specific form of BI in which location and geography are the primary dimensions used. The analysis is, in turn, conducted predominantly by viewing data points overlaid onto an interactive map.

"While the bulk of our energy is applied to track how users and markets are trending, we feel it's important to pause and acknowledge those vendors that innovate and successfully elevate the 'state of the art' for BI and analytics," said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. "We offer congratulations to TIBCO on its achievement this year."

"We are honored to be selected by Dresner Advisory Services for our location intelligence solution," said Matt Quinn, chief technology officer, and EVP products & technology, TIBCO. "The array of location apps available in today's market has created a consumer reliance on digital maps. The TIBCO Spotfire® GeoAnalytics offering aims to bring users real-time, actionable results, from monitoring inventory to booking a hotel room."
