TIBCO Announces New Integration Platform-as-a-Service

TIBCO Announces New Integration Platform-as-a-Service 
New TIBCO Cloud Bus Service Integrates SaaS and On-Premise
Applications and Allows Companies to Deploy on Their Platform of
Choice Under a Single Subscription Model 
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/13 --  TIBCO Software Inc.
(NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced the launch of TIBCO Cloud Bus(TM), its
new subscription-based Integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS)
offering that leverages the company's extensive integration expertise
and presents users with the ability to drastically shorten time to
market and lower costs as they migrate applications and workloads to
the cloud. 
"With Cloud Bus(TM), TIBCO is combining the deployment flexibility of
the cloud with enterprise-class integration features in a single
subscription service that customers can run anywhere -- on-premise,
in the cloud, in bare metal or virtualized environments," said Matt
Quinn, CTO for TIBCO Software. "TIBCO Cloud Bus provides ready-made
integrations across popular SaaS and critical on-premise
applications, while allowing subscribers the ability to identify,
configure and extend integration templates for their own business
context with ease. Finally, and as you would expect from TIBCO, Cloud
Bus includes extensive capabilities for real-time integration,
meaning changes are reflected in all connected applications as they
happen, without waiting for the next batch update." 
Deployment Freedom
 TIBCO recognizes that all companies are not
created equal and are at different stages in their cloud evolution.
TIBCO Cloud Bus allows subscribers to deploy on the cloud without the
need for, or investment in, hardware or software. Subscribers can
start projects in minutes and only pay for what they consume, while
having the freedom to choose and move across a set of cloud
infrastructure partners that meet TIBCO's and its enterprise
customers' exacting demands.  
"VMware and TIBCO are working closely together to offer TIBCO Cloud
Bus as a service on VMware vCloud(R) Hybrid Service(TM) to deliver
agility and flexibility to customers," said Mercer Rowe, director,
Cloud Services Partner Strategy, VMware. "Once implemented, customers
will be able to rapidly deploy TIBCO Cloud Bus and extend application
integration from private to public clouds on the same trusted
infrastructure, with common management and orchestration, backed by
the world-class VMware support organization." 
Ready-Made Integrations
 TIBCO Cloud Bus provides ready-made
integrations for a variety of applications such as salesforce.com and
other vendors. "TIBCO Cloud Bus allows subscribers to very quickly
and easily identify and configure an integration that fits, and be up
and running in just a few hours. This brings a new level of maturity
to the cloud integration market," said Mr. Quinn. Subscribers will
also be able to easily adapt any templates for their own business
context, effectively accelerating integration and innovation. 
"TIBCO is a valued partner in cloud integration and is bringing
choice and flexibility to users with Cloud Bus. In the same practice,
SAP supports an 'open + us' strategy with partners for the benefit of
an open platform for customers to choose the right technology for
their deployments," said Amit Sinha, senior vice-president, Database
and Technology at SAP.  
Real-time Integration
 TIBCO Cloud Bus includes extensive
connectivity capabilities to deliver real-time integration. Changes
are reflected in all connected cloud applications as they happen,
without waiting for the next batch update. For example, customer
orders and interactions are reflected in real-time, enabling
subscribers to instantly respond, putting SaaS applications squarely
in the middle of a business' critical processes. All of this results
in a better customer experience.  
According to Gartner, "Gartner expects iPaaS adoption to grow
significantly during the next five years. Via its predecessor,
integration-as-a-service offerings, iPaaS is already one of the main
options available to users to connect with external business partners
and to integrate cloud-based applications with their current
on-premises applications. Virtually all user organizations (large or
small) must integrate applications, and in a growing number of cases,
at least some of these applications are in the cloud." (quote from
Market Trends: Platform as a Service Worldwide, 2012 thru 2016, 2H12
Update, Gartner, October 2012.) 
"If a company's approach to integration is too fixed or locked-in, it
could limit the company's ability to leverage the cloud or switch
SaaS providers once it's there. TIBCO Cloud Bus offers a choice of
deployment options, ready-made integrations, and real-time
integration support that delivers the flexibility and time to value
that enterprises are looking for in moving applications and workloads
to the cloud," said Mr. Quinn.
