TIBCO Software, a provider of infrastructure software for on-premise and cloud computing environments, has announced the acquisition of Nimbus Partners, a UK-based provider of business process discovery and analysis applications. The acquisition of Nimbus is expected to help drive TIBCO's infrastructure software platform.
In a release, Murray Rode, TIBCO Chief Operating Officer, said, "Nimbus extends TIBCO's range of business process improvement solutions and deepens our abilities in process discovery and governance, social collaboration, and analytics. We are delighted to welcome Nimbus to the TIBCO family."
TIBCO enables automation of business processes, data and systems, while business enterprises leveraging the business process discovery and analysis applications solutions from Nimbus can easily describe and document the operational, organizational and system models for the different segments of their business.
Integrated with an extensive suite of management capabilities, these can enable enterprises develop and deliver "Intelligent Operations Manual" for the processes within the organization’s supporting data and systems structure. Nimbus identifies enterprise applications and automated workflow processes which are not captured. These are then used to improve the business by driving initiatives which comply with required organizational standards so they are provided with competitive edge.
Ian Gotts, Founder and CEO, Nimbus Partners, said, "By combining Nimbus with TIBCO and its market-leading capabilities and global reach, we will expand the range of audiences we can serve and depth of processes we can address while together providing insight that enables employees to make better decisions. We are excited for this next chapter, and look forward to the expanded solutions we can now offer our customers."
TIBCO provides more than 4,000 business enterprises across the globe with infrastructure software platform which can be deployed on-premise or within cloud computing environments, enabling them to effectively manage information, processes and applications. Through different business tasks such as claims or trade processing or customer behavior driven cross-selling, TIBCO's solutions enable enterprises to both capture information, and provides them with the ability to effectively act on the information which can help extend critical competitive edge.
