Last week TIBCO NOW 2020, a first-ever all-digital TIBCO NOW Connected Experience, was organized. A 3 day event stacked with the latest and the greatest about the TIBCO end-to-end offering. According to TIBCO close to 6000 attendees from over 80 countries and representing almost every industry tuned in. The main theme was TIBCO’s intention to propel Sustainable Innovation with technology frameworks, supported by proven solutions, best practices and techniques that support customers’ need for continual business reinvention.
Day 1 featured two special guests, Jen Sey, SVP & CM for Levi Strauss, and Charlotte Yarkoni, CVP of Commerce & Ecosystems at Microsoft. Both executives spoke about how they use innovation and data to meet customers where their needs are.
Day 2 built upon the discussions of why sustainable business practices and data-centric tools are critical to very practical discussions about how organizations can build a foundation for sustainable innovation. ”Data is the common element,” explained Dan Streetman, TIBCO’s CEO. “How data connects systems, people, and devices. How we manage, unify, and bring order to that data and ultimately how we build on that data foundation to make faster, smarter decisions is how you build a framework for sustainable innovation.”
Day 3 was all about delivering on the promise of sustained innovation and was led by TIBCO’s Head of Customer Excellence, Jeff Hess. He explained that it all starts with putting your customers first. You need to constantly ask “How can we make life better for our customers?” It’s a powerful clarifier in a world of competing priorities. By asking this question every day it’s the only way to ensure you can deliver on the promise of sustained innovation.
What’s new in the TIBCO data management corner?
TIBCO is an end-to-end software vendor and TIBCO Now 2020 was used to showcase all of the newer existing but also upcoming technology. Given our partnership and our field of expertise as a data management & data governance solution provider, we will zoom into what’s new in the TIBCO Unify domain and the most interesting data management topics.
TIBCO Any Data Hub.
One of the bigger announcements was the launch of TIBCO Any Data Hub framework. This is basically a host of technologies and proven methodologies to help customers sustain innovation. Being hyperconnected, using artificial intelligence and data science and empowering everyone in an organization with data is how you can innovate. Supporting TIBCO’s “better together” strategy, the TIBCO Any Data Hub framework supports tighter integration across its portfolio, including integration with TIBCO Cloud Integration, TIBCO Cloud Mashery, TIBCO Cloud Metadata Management and TIBCO EBX. This enables customers to build out data-as-a-service architectures and an all-in-one approach for data definitions, one data catalog, one point of access, one security model and one governance system. However it’s an open framework so it can also quiet easily hook into your existing landscape and get setup with the data management components you already have in place.
TIBCO Data Virtualization.
A core component of TIBCO’s Any Data Hub is TIBCO’s market-leading data virtualization platform. TIBCO Data Virtualization latest 8.3 release supports now a significantly expanded set of data adapters. With TIBCO Data Virtualization, you can now connect to over 300+ data sources including support for streaming sources such as Apache Kafka, OSIsoft, and OPC Unified Architecture. In addition, it is now available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, along with the current AWS Marketplace offering and has a Dockerfile option. Besides info on the new 8.3 version we also received insight in the roadmap and what TIBCO intends to implement in the future TDV.
TIBCO EBX & Cloud Metadata. Next to that there was also the necessary focus on the key Master Data Management (MDM) component, TIBCO EBX (former Orchestra Networks MDM that got acquired), which still manages to dominate the MDM market. Linked to that and better integrated is the second generation of the recently introduced TIBCO Cloud Metadata and step by step starts to extend the platform capabilities in the meta data management domain.

Given the circumstances we all need to face nowadays, CDO Exchange 2020 was organized last week in an adjusted online way. Regardless of the non-traditional approach, this still turned out to be an interesting forum for leaders active in the data domain (CDO – Chief Data Officers and others). The event was chaired by Bloor ResearchBrian Jones.
The event opened with a strong focus on data program fundamentals like stakeholder management and business case creation. The second part was all about AI and data driven value creation including the necessary attention on the important data ethics topic.
No data program or initiative without a purpose. Sounds like basic but so true. It’s not the first time that that a data initiative is kicked off because it’s innovative but at the end doesn’t address any real business need.
Correctly translating business needs is important but also understanding the right priorities is key. What are my real burning data platforms?
In the AI, ML, …. Basically the data science context, we are happy to see that a substantial number of business leaders managed to gain understanding of the most important principles of data science. Pay the necessary attention to this in your organization and make sure that you also remove the data & data science ‘language barrier’.
Don’t forget the company politics. In some organizations you will need to cope with individuals attempting to sabotage constructive change if it was ‘not invented here’ or ‘owned by us’. This point of attention was valid before, but unfortunately is still there and definitely present in the context of data programs.
Ethics is not about a choice, it’s an obligation. Data can be powerful and can potentially deliver huge value. Besides this potential, it also comes with a duty of care. In an era where customer centricity is vital, you need to make sure that your data management is objective, trustworthy and transparent to your customers and other stakeholders.
Ethics carry a cost. However the cost of not doing things right is much higher. Think about the overall and longer term reputationally and commercially cost.
Do you have a data management question or require some level of support with a data initiative in your organization? Feel to reach out to us and schedule a free sync session.
