Tibco

Tibco makes integration server software for enterprises. An integration server allows a company to mix packaged applications, custom software, and legacy software for use across internal and external networks. Tibco's patented approach is called Information Bus (TIB)and Tibco says that it has been used in financial services, telecommunications, electronic commerce, transportation, manufacturing, and energy. Tibco competes with SeeBeyond, Vitria, and webMethods among others.

ActiveEnterprise is Tibco's integration server package that supports both message-bus and hub-and-spoke integration server models. The message-bus model connects the different applications to a common backbone using application adapters. The hub-and-spoke model connects all applications to a central server. Tibco's latest addition to ActiveEnterprise is BusinessWorks, which uses Web services technology.

Tibco is based in Palo Alto, California and is traded (TIBX)on the Nasdaq.
