TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration and analytics, today announced the kickoff of its 14th annual TIBCO® Energy Forum, held at the Omni Houston Hotel through September 8. At the event, professionals and business leaders from the energy industry will come together to share their experiences and best practices for analytics implementations, and discuss the latest market innovations and trends.



"Analytics play a major role in the energy industry, increasing efficiencies, uncovering insights, and aiding businesses in achieving competitive advantages," said Thomas Been, chief marketing officer, TIBCO. "At TIBCO, we're helping companies augment intelligence and interconnect everything for a more comprehensive analytics experience. This year's TIBCO Energy Forum illustrates how our solutions enable businesses to elevate their business intelligence for deeper discovery and more actionable insights. Even with an increased capacity from last year, this event still sold out, reinforcing the strong demand for these solutions."



TIBCO Energy Forum attendees will hear from industry leaders during keynotes and breakout sessions, learn firsthand about the latest TIBCO analytics products through talks and tutorials, and see it all put into action through customer and partner presentations. Some attendees will also participate in a hands-on, guided hackathon aimed at addressing industry problems using TIBCO Spotfire® and TIBCO® Enterprise Runtime for R (TERR). Takeaways will include:

  • Learning how to optimize efficiency in operations, services, and production through the Industrial Internet of Things;
  • Understanding the benefits of becoming more data-driven, growing analytics from customary use cases to those that can be applied throughout an enterprise; and
  • Hearing from industry thought leaders on how to enable digital transformation with the use of TIBCO products, including TIBCO Spotfire®, TIBCO StreamBase®, TIBCO OpenSpirit®, and more.
