TIBCO Spotfire Cloud and SumAll.org Shed Light on Humanitarian Crisis and Human
Not-for-Profit Uses Free License of Visual Data Analytics Software to
Help Communicate Valuable Insights to the World
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- TIBCO Software Inc.
(NASDAQ: TIBX), a global leader in infrastructure and business
intelligence software, today announced that a free license of TIBCO
Spotfire(R) Cloud visual data analytics software is enabling
not-for-profit organization SumAll.org to glean valuable humanitarian
and human trafficking insights, and accurately communicate
information around the world, in real time.
"TIBCO's core mission is to help make the world a better place
through technology," said Lori Wright, chief marketing officer,
TIBCO. "Working with organizations like SumAll.org to address serious
issues allows us to make a global impact for the greater good. There
is a challenge in identifying and communicating complex data to a
distributed audience quickly, but Spotfire Cloud allows those who
need the information to receive it in a way that they can clearly see
and understand. By being able to rapidly mine and disseminate this
data, we're hoping it will increase public understanding and support
for sensitive issues around the world."
With the help of Spotfire Cloud, SumAll.org has been able to present
ongoing insights of current international conflicts to leading news
media in the U.S., Europe and Middle East. This data helps
journalists detect underlying trends earlier, such as the growth of
female war casualties or unreported mass killings. SumAll.org is also
working with a major publication to co-create a significant
infographic release based on the data.
"We are excited to work with TIBCO to help us achieve real-life
impact and data-driven social innovation," said Stefan Heeke,
executive director, SumAll.org. "Having access to TIBCO's
enterprise-level Spotfire solution helps SumAll.org better explore
the story hidden in the data and communicate it clearly to
stakeholders and the public."
TIBCO recently launched its cloud-based version of the TIBCO
Spotfire(R) data discovery and visualization platform, TIBCO Spotfire
Cloud. The industry-leading provider of enterprise analytics software
for business intelligence is now offered with the ease, speed and
cost-effectiveness of the cloud. TIBCO Spotfire Cloud makes it easy
to share insights on the Web, with unlimited public sharing.
