Silicon Storage Technology, Inc. Selects TIBCO SOA Offerings for Building Online Partner Trading Community


Drives Delivery of Services for Real-time Access to Partner Information and Data; Reduces Supply Chain Risk

TUCON(TM), ORLANDO, Fla., April 12 / / -- TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ:TIBX) today announced that Silicon Storage Technology, Inc. (SST), a leader in flash memory technology, has selected TIBCO Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) software for their new online business-to-business (B2B) partner trading community.

SST will deploy TIBCO BusinessWorks(TM) and TIBCO BusinessConnect(TM) -- now renamed TIBCO BusinessWorks(TM) Partner Connect -- for the delivery of services that will integrate existing applications, enable the secure exchange of critical information and streamline business processes involving multiple organizations. All this will help to facilitate the flow of real-time data between SST and their large ecosystem of third-party suppliers to manage inventory and reduce fulfillment times.

"SST ships 2 Million units of products a day and to achieve that we work with different vendors to manufacture our flash memory chips, so efficient supply chain management is crucial to deliver our products to market on-time," said Chi Yin, Vice President, Information Technology & Global Communications, SST. "After careful consideration of competing vendor solutions, we selected TIBCO based on their depth and breadth of SOA and B2B expertise, and the ease-of-use and flexibility of their products. We're confident TIBCO will optimize our supply chain and provide unparalleled visibility into our business, helping us achieve operational efficiencies and cost savings."

TIBCO's solutions for B2B integration are based on the RosettaNet and EDI standards, which enable SST and its partners to interact more efficiently and cost-effectively over the Internet. TIBCO BusinessWorks' standards-based Enterprise Service Bus backbone will mediate interactions among disparate applications and databases, automate business processes, manage transactions and Web services, and handle exceptions and process events. With TIBCO BusinessConnect software, SST will conduct transactions with other businesses through the secure exchange of business documents and automated cross-company processes.

"The dynamics of inter-organizational trading relationships introduces a whole new level of risk and complexity into the enterprise," said Ram Menon, senior vice president, Worldwide Marketing and Strategy, TIBCO. "Companies must worry about data and network security and still maintain end-to-end supply chain visibility to avoid the high operational costs that can result from inefficient processes. TIBCO allows SST to simplify and accelerate the sharing of information and proven business processes with every member of their constantly evolving partner ecosystem -- securely and easily."
