TIBCO honored with 2006 Technology of the Year Award
PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 5 -- TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ:TIBX), a leading business integration and process management software company that enables real-time business, today announced that IDG's InfoWorld, the leading integrated media brand for strategic technology decision-makers, has honored the company with a prestigious 2006 Technology of the Year Award, selecting TIBCO General Interface® 3.1 as the "Best AJAX Toolkit" of the year. InfoWorld's annual Technology of the Year Awards recognize the top nine technologies that made the greatest impact during the past year, and identify the products that best exemplify the implementation of those technologies.
According to the InfoWorld review published on Oct. 31, 2005, "General Interface excels in its power to create graphical views of data. You can write applications that draw graphs or other pictures in Internet Explorer's native VML (Vector Markup Language). None of the other toolkits can do this." InfoWorld's Peter Wayner concludes, "It's clear that TIBCO General Interface is one of the best ways to put a sophisticated user interface in front of people" who only use a browser.
"TIBCO General Interface provides the ability to quickly create and easily deploy enterprise-grade Web applications leveraging the unique attributes of AJAX," said Ram Menon, senior vice president, Worldwide Marketing at TIBCO. "InfoWorld's Technology of the Year Award is further testament to TIBCO's innovation and our commitment to delivering solutions that harness the power of a service-oriented approach."
TIBCO General Interface interacts seamlessly with TIBCO's SOA offerings, such as PortalBuilder 5, to allow customers to fully leverage AJAX capabilities inside an SOA. For enterprises looking to deploy next-generation rich portals, the powerful combination of TIBCO General Interface and TIBCO PortalBuilder 5 provides customers with the industry's most advanced portal technologies. Together, these products enable a highly interactive and responsive user experience, allowing customers to develop and deploy rich composite applications within their portals.
This InfoWorld 2006 Technology of the Year Award follows the recent selection of TIBCO customer Iconix Pharmaceuticals for a 2005 InfoWorld 100 Award for their creative use of the TIBCO General Interface Framework (See release dated Nov. 15, 2005, http://tibco.com/company/news/releases/press699.jsp). Iconix used TIBCO's AJAX solution to develop and power an intuitive, high-productivity graphical user interface for its comprehensive DrugMatrix® database.
