TIBCO Brings a Purpose-Driven User Experience to Business Process Management With Nimbus Control 9

New Intuitive Web User Interface Delivers Meaningful Process Information to the People Who Need It Most

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced TIBCO Nimbus Control® 9, the latest version of its business process improvement solution, which allows entire workforces to capture, collaborate, and communicate with each other about their daily work, providing unique insights into opportunities for improvement. With robust, built-in governance, Nimbus Control 9 provides a platform for process delivery while also serving as a personalized intelligent operations manual for the entire enterprise that supports consistent, efficient performance throughout the organization.

"During our relationship with Nimbus over the past six years, we've watched the product go from strength to strength," said Andrew Lee, senior business process & improvement manager of Carphone Warehouse. "The release of Nimbus Control 9 is revolutionary and offers our employees the chance to engage with process more easily and in ways we've never before considered -- allowing them a greater focus on continuing to deliver and improve exceptional service to our customers."

Nimbus Control 9 delivers the power of the two-second advantage® with a personalized approach to delivering real-time insights to the correct user, according to his or her organizational role. In complex environments, this ensures the right members of your team have the right information at the right time. The streamlined approach to process information empowers Nimbus users to more rapidly and accurately recognize, seize and achieve their strategic outcomes by breaking down internal barriers to capture and identify the best opportunities for event-enabling their enterprise.

The completely redesigned web interface dramatically improves the user experience, including faster navigation, superior personalization and enhanced search capabilities, as well as improved cross-functionality and efficiency.

"In an enterprise of 30,000 people for example, it can be extremely difficult for users to locate specific process content and associated documents, making it almost impossible for employees to get the right process information, at the right time for the role that they perform," said Mark Cotgrove, vice president, TIBCO. "Nimbus Control 9 completely mitigates this search process and eliminates the time spent by employees searching for documents, increasing productivity and enhancing employee performance while giving them a rich experience."

Nimbus Control 9 also has the ability to extend the power of TIBCO ActiveMatrix® BPM 2.0 and be used as a platform to gather business requirements and transfer them into TIBCO Business Studio™. Additionally, the new Nimbus Control 9 user-interface provides even better integration with TIBCO's social networking platform tibbr®, for complete, end-to- engagement and enterprise collaboration. Additional enhancements to Nimbus Control 9 include:

  • Significant improvements in reporting, social collaboration, and action management that bake process governance into normal ways of working
  • Improved performance and scalability that make Nimbus 9 easier to administer and deploy to thousands of users
  • The ability to see key performance metrics in the context of process
  • Single global governed process managing all process-related assets
  • Improved iOS app for mobile access to process contents
  • Built-in and customizable compliance frameworks that are used to model compliance standards and their relationships to process.

"Unlike other BPA tools, Nimbus focuses on empowering the largest number of everyday business users in the organization, enabling them to be more efficient in the way they work and hence more directly effective in delivering value to customers," said Nigel Kilpatrick, chief sales officer, TIBCO Nimbus. "The new interface adds significant value to any environment, making it even easier for line of business stakeholders to better communicate and collaborate with their technical counterparts."

According to Gartner's December 2011 Magic Quadrant for Business Process Analysis (BPA) Tools report, "the future direction for BPA will be increasing use by the business for both system-automated tasks and human-to-human BPA for the masses, instead of BPA for the few."

Based on features and design conventions from the world's most popular social and e-commerce sites, the improved Nimbus Control 9 interface can be customized to match a company's internal branding and style guidelines.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip? It’s a bold move, but you might consider walking away from your core platform and starting fresh. ReadyTalk did exactly that. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, will discuss why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and over a decade of audio conferencing product development to start an innovati...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

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. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
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?
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
