TIBCO + ibi: The Power of Together

Dan Ortolani

Topic:   Analytics

A passion for success and great products that drive a business forward were the motivating factors behind yesterday’s event, TIBCO + ibi: The Power of Together. This event was borne from our—TIBCO + ibi’s—desire to introduce ibi customers and partners like you to the TIBCO family and share all the ways the two companies complement and enhance one another’s strengths. Change is never easy, which is why this event’s agenda was designed to showcase a promising future together, while also addressing your most pressing concerns.

A Track for Everyone: Event highlights

The day began with a welcome from TIBCO’s executive leadership team, followed by three session tracks which registrants could attend:

  • The Success Track focused on the tools TIBCO + ibi together provide to help customers and partners be successful
  • The Innovation Track highlighted how TIBCO technology complements ibi’s portfolio and adds value
  • The Leadership Track demonstrated how TIBCO customers across industries, including the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team, are innovating with data

The event showcased products and technology plans, which will continue to focus on your most important needs. And to continue to nurture great relationships and community, TIBCO + ibi reinforced our continuation of KnowledgeShares, user groups, and the myibi community. Attendees also saw how TIBCO’s world-class business operations and scale will enhance the consistent, high level of service which you’ve already come to expect. And special guest speaker, Nile Rodgers, whose Grammy-winning recordings demonstrate the power of creativity through collaboration, discussed his insights on successful collaboration with TIBCO Chief People Officer Michelle Haddad.

A New Team: ibi’s legacy is woven into the fabric of TIBCO

The main point we hope customers and partners took from this event is that ibi remains focused on delivering the levels of trust, support, and ongoing communication through this transition and beyond, making us truly better together. TIBCO and ibi remain 100 percent committed to bolstering your success, delivering compelling, innovative solutions that unlock the potential of real-time data for faster, smarter decision making.

Given the two companies’ focus on excellence, as well as their complementary strengths, it only made sense that TIBCO and ibi joined forces. There were several reasons this acquisition made sense, but in the end it came down to this: both companies realized that our combined strengths made us better together. Your ibi team is proud and happy to now be an integrated part of TIBCO, and we look forward to continuing to serve you with innovative, data-driven solutions.

All of the TIBCO + ibi: The Power of Together sessions will be available on-demand through April 30, 2021. If you missed a session, or would like to replay some of the content, visit
