TIBCO Upgrades its Enterprise Social Computing Platform

TIBCO Software has announced a transformative upgrade to its enterprise social computing platform tibbr, which empowers professionals to follow their relevant colleagues, systems, and subjects that drive their businesses.

The company has unveiled tibbr 3.0 that features robust unified communications capabilities, including HD video conferencing and desktop sharing from within tibbr as well as strengthen integration to important enterprise systems.

tibbr 3.0 is scheduled to be generally available in August 2011.

TIBCO Software claims that already enterprise customers across 25 countries are using tibbr.

The solution effectively brings together their people, data and business processes in one seamless user experience.

According to a release, tibbr 3.0 will unify communications in the workplace, act on activity streams from enterprise applications, add a social layer to existing legacy applications in context, and also enable document management.

"We are a globally dispersed organization that cannot afford to navigate all over the place to find the real-time information we need the moment we need it," said Randy Wagner, Drilling Advisor, Apache Corp. "Social computing provides immediacy and enables our operations to be more efficient by working intuitively -- without having to know what tool to use or what technology is involved. A solution like TIBCO's centrally exposes a wide range of contextual information, feeds and conversations that will ultimately enrich our company-wide dialogue and broaden our knowledge pool to help us make faster, better decisions."

"What makes tibbr so powerful is not just that we can share the events, content and business processes that occur inside an enterprise," said Ram Menon, TIBCO's executive vice president. "With tibbr 3.0, we will make it easy to close the loop on those processes and tasks, and do so in a collaborative manner that helps employees to accelerate their productivity."
