TIBCO Spotfire to Host Complimentary Webcast on Agile Business Intelligence Featuring Independent Research Firm

Guest Boris Evelson, VP and Principal Analyst, to Focus on How Self-Service and Collaboration Can Enable Effective, Agile Business Intelligence Applications

SOMERVILLE, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/21/11 -- TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced that Boris Evelson, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research, Inc., will be featured in a TIBCO Spotfire® hosted webcast titled "Enabling Agile Business Intelligence Through Self-Service and Collaboration," on Tuesday, November 29, 2011. During the complimentary webcast, Mr. Evelson will discuss the traditional business intelligence (BI) landscape, the best approaches for deploying BI solutions, and how agile BI can specifically lead to more successful BI applications.

What/When: "Enabling Agile Business Intelligence Through Self-Service and Collaboration" webcast - Tuesday, November 29 at 1:00 p.m. EST/10 a.m. PST.

Business Intelligence is no longer just a "nice to have" back-office reporting and querying application, as the majority of businesses now view BI as a key competitive differentiator. Today, most products and services in the global economy become commoditized, and businesses are competing more and more just on information. By obtaining better insights into how their customers and products are performing, organizations then have the ability to make better and faster decisions. However, earlier generation BI technologies are complex and expensive, leading to heavy IT involvement, protracted deployment cycles with costly ongoing IT support and unclear ROI.

Agile BI, which Forrester defines as "an approach that combines processes, methodologies, organizational structure, tools, and technologies that enable strategic, tactical, and operational decision-makers to be more flexible and more responsive to the fast pace of business and regulatory requirement changes," addresses these concerns with multiple technologies, including a better capability for end users to self-service most of their BI requirements.

During the webcast, attendees will learn:

  • Why earlier generation BI is complex and costly;
  • How agile BI can propel you to less expensive and more successful BI applications;
  • What approaches and technologies are necessary for deploying BI solutions where business users can fulfill the majority of new and ongoing requirements on their own; and
  • Why in-memory architecture and collaborative functionality are both key components to successful agile BI applications.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
