TIBCO Software, a provider of infrastructure software, announced a new app vision and partner ecosystem for tibbr.
TIBCO tibbr is a social enterprise platform revolutionizing the way we work, collaborate, learn and share. Launched in January 2011, tibbr brings together what matters – to individuals or groups – to get work done better, faster. With flexible deployment options, tibbr can be delivered on-premises or in the cloud, minimizing IT resources and getting all employees started within days.
TIBCO will enable developers to create rich social applications through the tibbr Enterprise Social Graph API, and offer organizations access to cutting-edge apps from a curated marketplace.
The Enterprise Social Graph API is scheduled to be generally available by the end of November 2012.
"The tibbr ecosystem is being built around an open API and a flexible, customizable platform that delivers the right information to the right person in the right context at the right time," said Ram Menon, president of social computing at TIBCO.
TIBCO social tools are noted to bridge the gap in aligning business data with human intelligence. It’s all about expanding the collaborative experience to include igniting events happening deep within the enterprise. Turning the entire business social, the workforce can share ideas, exchange experiences and interact with information in any system in real time.
And when subjects are followed in tibbr, users can spend less time searching for the information they need.
The tibbr app vision also includes Open Market, a new apps marketplace for tibbr that will allow companies to organize, manage, curate and distribute apps; Open API, the Enterprise Social Graph API can be leveraged by in-house developers, partners and third-party developers; and Partner Ecosystem, an ecosystem of leading business software providers are using the tibbr API to tightly integrate apps into the platform.
Also at TUCON 2012, TIBCO Software announced TIBCO Spotfire 5.0, the latest version of its data discovery and analytics platform, which offers breakthrough capabilities to speed analysis of big data.
