TIBCO NOW Tour Ends with Recognition of Customer Innovation
London, UK, October 15, 2015 - TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration, analytics, and event processing, has recognized the leading-edge customers who are harnessing its technology to game-changing effect at the TIBCO Trailblazer Awards. The awards marked the end of the TIBCO NOW™ Tour (TNT) conferences in London and Paris, a major customer event and showcase for the latest evolutions of the TIBCO® Fast Data platform, in which participants networked and shared best practices with the TIBCO ecosystem.
Casino operator Genting UK triumphed in London, whilst French insurance company MAIF and BNP Paribas Securities Services took the honors in Paris, having all demonstrated how TIBCO technology can shape business culture, fuel growth, and surpass the expectation of today’s digital customer experience.
At TNT London, Genting UK received the Innovator award in recognition of how it has accelerated IT innovation across the business in a collaborative way to provide remarkable product and service delivery to their customers.
As part of the Genting Group and one of the largest casino operators in the UK, the business embarked on a transformative integration project in 2014, with the help of the TIBCO Fast Data platform so that it could remain focused on the customer journey, while improving margins and operational facilities.
IT has evolved from an old-fashioned and complex infrastructure, which was proving costly and inefficient, into an integrated system that enables the faster delivery of new services and enhanced agility, a truly strategic differentiator for the company. Embracing an event-enabled platform has facilitated an event-driven and value-based business offering a high-end, personalized customer experience, fueling Genting UK's launch of a first-of-its-kind integrated resort destination.
At TNT Paris, MAIF scooped the Impact award in recognition of its success in leveraging a flexible, agile platform to evolve its IT strategy and facilitate operational excellence, while increasing competitiveness and creating a superior customer experience.
MAIF is a member-owned insurance company in France. MAIF has won awards for delivering the best insurance company member relationship 11 times in a row. To strengthen this position, the insurer revolutionized its IT architecture with TIBCO. The new, agile, integrated infrastructure has contributed to faster delivery of a wider range of high-quality services through all communication channels, and simplified and improved the partner experience.
BNP Paribas Securities Services (BP2S) took the Pioneer Award, a fitting accolade for a business known as "The Bank for a Changing World." As part of the BNP Paribas Group's Asset Management and Services division, BP2S has a presence across 34 countries and is committed to providing valued-added services to its discerning clients. Progress has been fueled by TIBCO Spotfire®, which has dramatically improved analyst operations, enabled IT resources to focus on other strategic initiatives, while providing customers with access to the insightful data needed to make the most informed decisions. As such, the business has become fully responsive to customer needs across 100 markets and is now one of the highest rated asset servicing banks in the industry.
