TIBCO Software Inc. has announced that it has joined the Cloud Foundry Foundation, an independent non-profit organization that drives the development, promotion, and adoption of Cloud Foundry as the industry standard platform for cloud applications. As a Foundation member, TIBCO will be in a position to actively contribute to the development of the platform to meet the demands facing enterprises in the midst of cloud adoption.
"The path to digital business transformation demands a cloud strategy that addresses the most challenging real-world requirements encountered by enterprise IT departments," said Matt Quinn, executive vice president of products & technology and chief technology officer, TIBCO. "By joining the Cloud Foundry Foundation, we have an opportunity to cooperatively enhance the Cloud Foundry platform, equipping developers with the best tools to swiftly and safely architect the kind of cloud-native applications that grow businesses."
TIBCO will be empowered to work with other Cloud Foundry Foundation members to enable customer development of portable cloud-native applications that leverage the TIBCO BusinessWorks™ Container Edition platform. Natively running within a Cloud Foundry Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment, TIBCO BusinessWorks Container Edition provides the fastest time to results for developers by letting them focus on the business logic of their applications, leaving much of the complex work of integrating applications and microservices to automation.
Assuring portability and interoperability is a cornerstone of the Cloud Foundry Foundation's mission, and TIBCO is now an official contributor to the goal of ensuring that digital businesses maintain independence and control over choice of languages, frameworks, application services, and clouds.
"At the Cloud Foundry Foundation, we are always looking for ways to enhance our platform so that it provides vendor-agnostic flexibility, scalability, and interoperability for cloud deployments to help enterprises develop cloud deployments that best suit their business needs," said Sam Ramji, chief executive officer, Cloud Foundry. "Integration remains a key concern as cloud development proliferates, so we are pleased that TIBCO will be sharing its expertise to deepen the Cloud Foundry platform's capabilities."
