OEM Partner Tibco Recognized by Forrester Research
The scope and scale of today’s enterprise challenges are unprecedented in terms of their complexity. Vast volumes of information are scattered across the ecosystem and around the globe, and enterprises often are expected to dynamically retrieve precisely the right data set on a moment’s notice to win a customer’s loyalty. If not, other vendors eagerly await to win that customer’s lifetime business. Every transaction is a lifetime transaction.
In this hyper complex and hyper competitive environment, no single vendor can do it all by themselves. The success of one enterprise is inextricably linked to the quality of its partnerships. OEM partners, by nature, often form the critical core of another’s customer-facing solution. And so it is with TIBCO.
The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Insight Platform Suites was issued in November by Forrester Research. The report profiles seven insight platforms that combine data management, analytics, and insight execution tools, which Forrester cites as being the “top emerging technology priority according to enterprise architects.” Forrester pays particular attention in this report to enterprise insight platform suites, which it defines as “Integrated or partially integrated suites of data management, analytics, and insight execution components that require some integration and configuration to form a platform.” Notably, Forrester calls out that this enterprise market segment is growing so quickly, “…because customers have struggled with open source and a bevy of startups, and they need a platform they can trust with their most demanding enterprise applications.”
What’s especially noteworthy in this report is that Forrester calls out TIBCO’s leadership positioning as being dependent in part on its OEM-ing of Attivio. Forrester states, “TIBCO's OEM of Attivio® provides excellent data lake, governance, and search tools as well” and even cites another of its reports, The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Search and Knowledge Discovery Solutions, Q3 2015, in which Attivio is named a leader.
Attivio is the OEM core of many enterprise solutions, so it’s great to see that Forrester explicitly calls out the unique value that Attivio brings to Tibco in this recent report.
