Did you know that 16 of the 30 companies that make up the current Dow Jones Industrial Average started in a recession? With potential customers thinking outside the box, plenty of affordable talent, and more cost-conscious buyers focusing on value over brand, it’s actually a good time to start a business.
Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities begins with: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” What better way to describe the state of business today? TIBCO Founder and CEO Vivek Ranadivé explains how entrepreneurs and businesses can thrive by delivering extreme value and reinventing themselves for the 21st century.

Many of us thought by the time 2012 came around, we would be living in a scene from Back to the Future Part II: flying cars, robot waiters and automatic shoelaces. While we still have a ways to go in a few regards, some of the 1989 film’s predictions were not far off. Scenes depicted flat-panel T.V. screens mounted to walls, video games commanded by body movements instead of hand controllers and a multi-party video conference call resulting in Marty McFly being fired via a real-time fax.
Of course, an email would be the more realistic form of firing Marty today, but the notion is the same. Through Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology, devices can capture events (Marty’s boss’ verbal termination), relay them through a network to an application that extracts intelligence and translates the captured event into meaningful information (in this case: “You’re fired!”). This data is then transmitted through a system of networks to personal devices. M2M enables these machines to communicate with one another and serve like a hired personal assistant, making our lives just a little bit easier.
More highly pragmatic uses can be deployed by today’s M2M technology. Machines are becoming more human by driving relevance through these event-enabled networks. Imagine this:
Now, stop imagining and pay attention. Check out M2M for yourself and learn how we are, in fact, getting back to the future.
We all know we’re being sold something every minute of every day. Those who use subliminal messaging to influence their target market may be more sly, and more expensive, but aren’t necessarily more successful. Your product or service’s true value should speak for itself. This often involves informing your consumer to make an educated decision to purchase what you’re selling, because they “get it,” not because you told, cajoled, or hyped them to buy.
The TIBCO–hosted, vertically oriented innovation sessions open dialogue regarding innovation. We provide a forum for customers and prospects to share their challenges and successes, so others (including us!) can learn from them. The better you know your customers and peers, the better experience you can provide.
Discover how TIBCO shifts the conversation beyond single products to a shared culture of solution discovery with the latest addition to our Global Innovation Series, captured at the HIMSS Healthcare IT Conference. We learned what’s hot in healthcare straight from some of the industry’s most respected thought leaders.
