TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration, API management, and analytics, congratulates Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport's driver, Lewis Hamilton, on winning the 2017 FIA Formula One™ World Drivers' Championship*, taking the title at Sunday's Mexico Grand Prix. This follows the team's win the previous weekend in Austin, taking home the 2017 FIA Formula One World Constructors' Championship for the fourth year in a row. TIBCO's advanced visual analytics and integration solutions help to drive the continued success of the team, pioneering new approaches to the sport of auto racing as an Official Team Partner.

"The significant number of wins that our partner Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport achieved this year, and the resulting two championship titles, is further proof of what constant innovation in technology can deliver," said Thomas Been, chief marketing officer, TIBCO. "Looking back on the 2017 Formula One™ season, we're honored to have started a partnership with such a talented team, a collaboration that has continued to flourish and showcase the capabilities of our solutions."

TIBCO helps form a digital nervous system that provides insight into the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team operations. This participation in the world of Formula One showcases the breadth and flexibility of TIBCO's offerings. Reviewing data before, during, and after the race in real time enables the team to make decisions in the moment, rather than losing time processing results.

"We're constantly working with massive amounts of data that must be processed in real time, so we need robust technology to help support that process," said Matt Harris, head of IT, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport. "Our partnership with TIBCO has helped us rethink how we manage that data and make informed decisions based on the information we receive. These two championship wins are evidence that what we’re doing here makes a difference."

TIBCO and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport will continue to work together to evolve the methods of processing race data and analyzing the results, incorporating capabilities of the TIBCO® Connected Intelligence Cloud into those efforts.
