During the TIBCO NOW 2019 keynote in Chicago, Rajeev Kozhikkattuthodi, vice president, product management and strategy, TIBCO announced the expansion of cloud-native offering to address developers' challenges.
According to Rajeev, in this the age of the customer, companies are getting tired of customer experience (CX) which is sad given how poor a job they are doing improving it. It's like they are clueless. Perhaps they need to better understand the customer journey? TIBCO is trying to help with connected intelligence CX.
The latest enhancements to TIBCO’s offerings include the following:
- Native support for GraphQL: TIBCO Cloud Integration is the first enterprise Integration Platform-as-a-Service to provide native support for GraphQL, a query language that helps break down silos across the enterprise information landscape to present a singular view of an enterprise’s digital services to customers;
- Increased application responsiveness: The TIBCO Cloud Mashery micro-gateway now supports event-driven patterns, enabling digital businesses to take actions on events occurring in real time — creating dynamic customer experiences – through support for the AsyncAPI Project when using Apache Kafka; and
- New open source Project Flogo streams designer: Now Project Flogo offers a web designer, significantly simplifying how developers work with streaming data and allowing them to process raw data pipelines using tasks such as aggregations, join streams, and filtering. TIBCO Cloud Events adds commercial support for these capabilities, along with business rules authoring, enabling non-technical business users to collaborate with developers and build applications to quickly identify meaningful events and take the next best actions.
"Developers have access to an unprecedented array of innovative technologies and powerful cloud compute right now, which empowers them to create new possibilities for customers. TIBCO helps create that wave by streamlining application development and increasing developer productivity to build incredible customer experiences," said Rajeev. "By doing so, any organization in any industry can create highly engaging and responsive customer-facing applications that increase brand loyalty, advance self-service and learn behaviors and preferences. We are proud to continue leading the market with first-of-its-kind innovations that directly enhance our customers’ products and bottom line."
I spoke to Sagar Khaire, Senior Manager DevOps and Rakesh Madireddy, Principal Developer at T-Mobile, about the announcement they were most excited about from the conference. It's the new open source Project Flogo streams designer. They planned to pursue a POC when they returned to their office.
Sagar and Rakesh have used TIBCO to implement their DevOps methodology breaking their monolithic transaction processing app that processes 144 million transactions per day into 600 microservices with TIBCO Container. They are now releasing 10 to 20 times a day versus once a month and have improved response time by 40 percent with faster speed to market and zero downtime.
