Palo Alto, CA


14 February, 2018


TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration, API management, and analytics, today announced it tied for a first place ranking out of 16 vendors in the 2018 Dresner Location Intelligence Market Study, part of the Wisdom of Crowds® series of research. The fifth annual report analyzes user perceptions and trends in location intelligence implementation. TIBCO's market-differentiating geocoding support, integration, and location features contributed to its high score for the third year in a row, showcasing how its innovative solutions are addressing the growing market need for location intelligence.

"By harnessing the power of TIBCO Spotfire's location analytics tools, organizations can utilize detailed multi-layered maps, geocoding tools, and advanced geo-processing capabilities. This, in turn, allows them to draw previously unavailable real-world insights on the relationship between data and location," said Michael O'Connell, chief analytics officer, TIBCO. "We're honored to be recognized for our continued commitment to providing advanced location intelligence capabilities through the TIBCO Connected Intelligence platform."

TIBCO Spotfire® delivers comprehensive location analytics to help users understand data in greater detail. By bringing real-world context to analyses, maps uniquely generate insights and make predictions that would not be possible using traditional tables and charts. As companies increasingly recognize the benefits of location-based intelligence, they can rely on TIBCO to deliver innovative geoanalytic tools.

The 2018 study addresses end user requirements and features such as geocoding support, location intelligence capabilities, third-party GIS integration, and mobile location intelligence features. It also covers current and planned industry support for location intelligence and how user requirements match or diverge from industry capabilities.

"Location Intelligence has slowly but consistently become more top of mind for both end users and market suppliers," said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer, Dresner Advisory Services. "We began covering the topic in 2014, believing we would eventually see the uptick in interest and use cases. With the growth in visualization and the emergence of IoT, it has become even more important to users to have location as a key dimension in maps as a means of displaying information and navigating insights within their data."
