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.
