“In 2018, we saw tremendous adoption of our cloud-based integration offering, TIBCO Cloud Integration. We’re proud of the momentum of our API-led platform, which is leveraged in use cases that range from departmental projects connecting cloud applications quickly and easily, to strategic IT projects that include modernizing legacy systems, building a hybrid architecture, levering container technologies, and building smart edge components,” said Thomas Been, chief marketing officer, TIBCO. “TIBCO’s performance in the report’s categories, such as user experience, time to value, and API creation and management, validates our overall strategy and the feedback we have incorporated from our customers.”

According to the report, TIBCO, “provides an all-purpose integration solution ... In addition to the broad spectrum of integration scenarios, TIBCO’s differentiators are the embedded integration environment within Salesforce, advanced support for IoT integration, a focus on diminishing operational costs with operational intelligence, and the capability to run on AWS Lambda to benefit from the spot market pricing model. In their digital transformation, TIBCO customers appreciate the ease of use, ease of deployment, ease of adoption, and pace of innovation.”
