TIBCO Launches Two Tools to Further the Consumerization of IT

TIBCO is introducing two tools that extend beyond automation and into the realm of digitalizing businesses with the release of TIBCO Simplr and TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM 4.0.

“This is our first focus on the everyday user to help people build processes to automate some of the routine things they might do,” said Brad Topliff, senior product manager for prosumer apps at TIBCO.

TIBCO Simplr is a new service that leverages the no-code concept by tapping into personal automation, allowing the non-programmer to easily create a recipe to perform a task with just a few clicks and some simple configuration. TIBCO Simplr users can create connections to existing cloud services, create recipes that automate the flow of information between those cloud services, select from existing recipes and use personal connectors to make them work as desired, and provide feedback to improve the tool and share what new connectors they would like to see.

ActiveMatrix BPM 4.0 is enhanced with new capabilities for the digital business, supporting processes with dynamic, contextual, and complex business data. With the combination of user-friendly design and enterprise strength, ActiveMatrix BPM 4.0 reduces dependency on IT for daily business operations without sacrificing performance. New features in the 4.0 release include the ability to easily generate low-code apps customized to suit the organization, recomposable case management functionality and templates, and process design velocity support for opportunistic and rapid experimentation when initiating a new business process instance or sharing new actions on an existing process.

“With this new release we are actually focusing on a new area that’s supporting change and being able to be very opportunistic with your processes internally,” Rachel Brennan, director of product marketing for TIBCO Business. “We kind of think about it as doing innovation through experimentation.”

 The ActiveMatrix BPM 4.0 platform gives organizations the ability to make all business processes scalable, data-centric, and contextual, and supports independent and flexible organizational models.

Without assistance from IT, users can rapidly compose interactive business applications, such as apps specialized for the mobile workforce, composite apps that include data from outside sources, or self-service applications.

“The really a big focus for Active Matrix BPM in general is to make better business outcomes by providing better business decisions,” Brennan said. “It’s all about supporting the knowledge worker to be able to do their job better.”
