TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ:TIBX), a leading business integration and process management software company that enables real-time business, today announced a partnership with Defywire, Inc., a leading mobile and wireless solution provider.
The goal of the partnership is to enable TIBCO customers to gain real-time access to business processes via virtually any wireless device, on any combination of mobile networks. The proposed combination of TIBCO and Defywire software will enable organizations to realize the benefits of mobilized workforces while maintaining improved insight into and control over business processes, no matter where the information is being accessed.
The Defywire Mobility Suite, coupled with TIBCO's award-winning business process management (BPM) solutions, would enable customers to both seamlessly and quickly deploy wireless applications via a secure, reliable application architecture that leverages and complements a company's existing information technology investments. This would enable TIBCO BPM technology, including TIBCO Staffware Process Suite, to allow mobile participation in business processes that will in turn increase overall operational efficiencies.
Defywire enables organizations to achieve a rapid ROI by deploying mobile applications that go beyond synchronization, pushing the transfer of information both to and from corporate information systems in real-time. Defywire's mobile Java-based software works with any wireless device - including phones, PDAs or laptops - and any technology, including cellular, Wi- Fi, RFID and GPS. Using Defywire middleware and applications, companies ranging from leading Fortune 200 companies to small startups have effectively mobilized their workforces and reinvented their business processes in just a few weeks or even days.
"The mobile workforce is becoming more and more critical to business success, and sharing information instantly is both a competitive advantage and a way to improve operational efficiency," said Jill Stelfox, Chairman and CEO of Defywire, Inc. "The intent of this partnership will enable Defywire customers to securely and remotely access the business-critical information provided by TIBCO's world class business integration technologies."
