TIBCO Software Inc. (Nasdaq: TIBX) today announced it will kick off the company's annual customer and business partner conference, TUCON®, at the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV later this month. A record number of registrants and attendees are expected to attend the four-day event.
The event will explore the critical importance of context in understanding the mass of information individuals and businesses face every day. The right information, in context and ahead of time – even if only a little bit – dramatically magnifies the power and usability of the information we receive. This premise, described as "The Two-Second Advantage," is the theme of this year's conference, and is the title of the new book by Vivek Ranadivé and Kevin Maney.
Starting on September 26, 2011 and continuing through September 29, 2011, TUCON 2011 will feature more than 70 global brands from around the world including FedEx Corporation, ING, MGM Resorts International and Nielsen. Speakers at all levels will talk about how they are breaking free from an "after-the-fact" model and bringing the two-second advantage to life based on an event-enabled enterprise.
- Keynote addresses from industry leaders including Robert Carter, EVP, Information Services, and CIO, FedEx Corporation; James Murren, chairman and CEO, MGM Resorts International; and Vivek Ranadivé, founder and CEO, TIBCO;
- Informative "Big Idea" content tracks discussing cutting edge, 21st century business challenges in Contextual Mobility, Customer Loyalty, Managing Risk, Event Driven Healthcare, Analytics and Social in the Enterprise;
- Engineering roundtables and more than 60 product and vertical solution demos that offer a place to engage in one-on-one discussions with TIBCO product managers, professional services consultants, engineers and other in-house experts; and
