tibbr Mobile Apps Set the Pace for Enterprise Social Networks

tibbr Leads the Market in Support for Mobile Platforms and Devices With a Beautiful and Easy Experience That Lets You Get Work Done -- Fast

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/13 -- TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced the latest version of tibbr® mobile applications for a range of mobile platforms and devices, including Blackberry® (Z10, Q10, and Playbook™), Android™ (Nexus™ 4, Nexus™ 10, and Samsung™ Galaxy Note™) and the Retina display iPad and iPhone 5 mobile digital devices. This latest version sets a new standard in mobile interactivity for enterprise social networks and focuses on helping people get real work done fast by providing an experience that is beautiful, integrated with business applications, contextual and optimized for mobile devices and platforms.

For more than two years, tibbr has led the enterprise social networking market in mobile functionality. tibbr was the first enterprise social network with support for all the top mobile computing platforms, including iOS, Android and BlackBerry. It was the first enterprise social network to deliver real-time chat and geo-location capabilities in a mobile context. tibbr not only set the pace of innovation for the industry, it's also become an essential platform for businesses that rely on connecting their mobile workforces.

Key features of the latest tibbr mobile releases include:

  • Extending support for more platforms and devices (BlackBerry, Android, iOS): In the modern BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) work world, having a great experience on every platform is essential. In addition to the existing iOS, Android and BlackBerry native mobile apps, tibbr is now extending support to the newest mobile operating system, BlackBerry 10, allowing tibbr to be used on the related Z10 and Q10 smartphones. Business users can now use tibbr with the enterprise services and full QWERTY keyboards that they have come to expect from BlackBerry. tibbr also supports the new Retina display iPad mobile digital device and tablets powered by Android, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note and Nexus 10.

  • Built from the ground up for mobile: Companies now rely on their mobile workers to accomplish more with smartphones and tablets and hence users expect to not only see activity feeds and consume content, but also generate content and take action. For each and every leading platform and device, tibbr engineers have crafted beautiful experiences that enable users to act without juggling multiple apps. For example, a sales executive can adjust the forecast of an opportunity in a CRM system, a supply chain manager can adjust the inventory levels in an ERP system and a procurement manager can approve expenses and purchase orders in the financials system -- all right from within tibbr on their mobile devices.

  • Discover what's relevant: tibbr mobile apps now leverage the Enterprise Social Graph within tibbr to let users discover relevant people, ideas and activities, based on who they are, the people they follow and the business apps and files that they interact with. For example, a sales person who has commented on a document on financial regulations discovers an email marketing subject for banking prospects, which will help him reach out to banks on his target list. Every aspect of tibbr is thoughtfully designed to give mobile users an almost 'invisible' ability to just tap, swipe and discover.

"tibbr mobile's cross-platform availability follows TIBCO's strategy of supporting and connecting with a wide variety of different systems," said Vanessa Thompson, Research Manager for Enterprise Social Networks and Collaborative Technologies at IDC. "Businesses are actively seeking mobile devices, across form factors, to enable users to get work done in the context of their space or place of work. Users should have access to information from within an application so they don't need to leave the context of where they are getting their work done. tibbr mobile meets this inevitability."

"We're obsessed with making the overall experience with our platform utterly delightful across every computing platform," said Ram Menon, President, Social Computing, TIBCO. "On mobile platforms, we are always guided by how fast we can get our users to accomplish real work. These new tibbr mobile releases build on our innovation leadership and support our overall vision of being the essential enterprise social platform for modern business."

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts.

What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
