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."

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
