TIBCO Software Inc. today announced a big data architecture that addresses the fundamental need for today's enterprises to operationalize big data with the latest advancements in software technology. TIBCO's platform is setting the stage for a new wave in technology architecture that specifically addresses big data and the need for enterprises to process this data in the context of their business.
According to Gartner'sApril 2013 research titled, "Big Data Opportunities, New Answers and New Questions" by Svetlana Sicular, "Data liberation leads to new technologies and new approaches to data, which open up new business scenarios by extracting insights for decision-making and operational efficiency that were not previously available. Organizations must recognize that technology is their business advantage and must look for opportunities sustained by big data."
"Historically big data has not focused on the operational outcomes that can greatly improve an organization's competitive landscape," said chief technology officer, TIBCO, Matt Quinn. "At TIBCO our focus is on making it as seamless and as efficient as possible for customers to access all their data at rest and in-motion, giving them the power to quickly use that data to identify and address business problems and opportunities in the moment."
