Today, TIBCO, a business unit of Cloud Software Group, announced that Ali Ahmed, who has been with the company for more than 21 years, is now general manager of TIBCO.

Previously, Ali has held a number of leadership roles across engineering, including head of Global Engineering Services, and he brings deep expertise in delivering high-quality products and managing large engineering teams worldwide.

“TIBCO is a mission-critical partner for some of the world’s largest enterprises. I am confident that under Ali’s leadership, we can deliver even more innovation and focus for our customers,” said Tom Krause, chief executive officer, Cloud Software Group.
