TIBCO Announces Locally Hosted Live Apps Now Available in Australia



21 September, 2017


TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration, API management and analytics, today announced the recently launched TIBCO Cloud™ Live Apps as a locally hosted service now available in Australia. TIBCO® Live Apps, together with the established TIBCO Cloud™ Integration, provides business users with self-service functionality, while reducing the burden on corporate IT departments.

With TIBCO Cloud Live Apps and TIBCO Cloud Integration now hosted within the AWS data centre in Sydney, Australia, users can gain access to the services without the latency restrictions often associated with offshore facilities and with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that customer data is being stored in Australia-based servers. Small and medium business users will also benefit from local access to an Apple iPad native version of the service.

TIBCO Live Apps, announced internationally by the company in June, provides an intuitive, easy-to-use solution that enables rapid delivery of smart business applications built on powerful integration capabilities. The solution has been designed to give non-technical users the ability to create customized apps in minutes to address real-world business challenges. Smart apps are built as an extension of existing systems in place, or as a mashup, based on APIs managed by developers and exposed in platforms like TIBCO Mashery®.

"Business users are faced with increasing market competition and need to have new apps to get them up and running as quickly as possible," said Robert Merlicek, chief technology officer, Asia Pacific and Japan, TIBCO. "Unfortunately, current app development methods require IT teams with a complex set of technical skills, which is causing delays and user frustration. Live Apps addresses these issues with an overall seamless experience for citizen developers."

TIBCO Live Apps addresses the twin needs of rapid development and differentiation by providing users with the tools they need to build their own custom-fit apps. Through a simple, web-based interface, they can choose from a variety of pre-built connectors, connect apps to cloud or on-premises applications, unlock data, and bring it to life in minutes.

"TIBCO is committed to the provision of cloud-based architecture in Australia, and today's announcement is a significant step in making this commitment a reality," said Merlicek. "We look forward to working with our Australian clients to help them accelerate digital transformation and innovate with smart apps."

Dubbed 'low-code' development, these offerings support rapid experimentation and allow business users to quickly trial new ideas and approaches. The result is a more responsive organization that's better placed to innovate and compete in a rapidly evolving marketplace.
