Impact Award

Stack Sports (formerly Blue Star Sports) is transforming the youth sports experience. Its portfolio of solutions provides user-friendly sports league, team, and athlete management solutions for over 50 million users worldwide. As the company experienced recent exponential growth, it became difficult to maintain, connect, and extend its international platform consisting of five applications. Stack Sports adopted the integration and messaging capabilities of the TIBCO® Connected Intelligence Cloud, which enabled the rapid creation of new services and the integration of its core membership, registration, and competition management applications, as well as GameDay and Courtside mobile applications. This reduced time to market for new feature releases from months to weeks. With TIBCO, Stack Sports was able to leverage a flexible, agile IT platform and strategy to drive outstanding quantifiable levels of operational excellence, increased competitiveness, and more personalized and engaging customer experiences for its millions of users.

Transformer Award

Ranked number one among the top 20 European airports, Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino airport is known for its level of service to airlines and 41 million passengers. To stay ahead of increasing competition and evolving consumer demands, the airport’s operator, Aeroporti di Roma, enacted an improvement plan based on infrastructural and digital innovation, strong involvement of all staff, and total concentration on the quality of services provided to passengers. By means of this plan, Aeroporti di Roma approached TIBCO to collaborate on its digital transformation. With the TIBCO Connected Intelligence platform, Aeroporti di Roma now integrates and correlates all airport information to understand customer behaviors, better manage operational situations, and prevent problems from arising. In fact, the industry has taken notice of the airport’s operational cost reductions, improved customer experiences, and increased retail revenue. Skytrax, the leading international rating and assessment company, assigned it the prestigious "World's Most Improved Airport 2018” status and CIO Emiliano Sorrenti was named a 2018 European CIO of the Year for building a fully functional, connected airport with real-time, operations responsive to organizational behavior.

Pioneer Award

A leading, multinational courier delivery services company has leveraged the TIBCO Connected Intelligence platform to aggregate shipment information from around the company and around the world, providing improved visibility into real-time shipment information. With the ability to generate dashboards in a matter of seconds, this company has been empowered to make data-driven decisions, yielding more efficient asset allocations, improved agility and increased savings.

Visionary Award

Adidas, a global leader in the sporting goods industry, strives to be the best sports brand in the world. As the company’s focus was to get closer to the consumer via multiple digital channels, it needed a solution to support its growing focus on e-commerce, in addition to mass personalized engagement and manufacturing. By implementing APIs for global standardization with TIBCO, adidas was able to create an elastic, scalable environment, capable of reacting quickly to meet business demands. TIBCO’s connected integration solutions have supported adidas in redefining its business models in the wake of major technology disruption to deliver market-leading products and services, and an exceptional consumer experience globally.
