TIBCO Acquires Orchestra Networks
“This is a very important acquisition for us, supporting our mission to create the world’s leading platform for digital business. Orchestra Networks will allow TIBCO to address our customers’ simple and complex master data and data asset management needs quickly and easily,” said Matt Quinn, chief operating officer, TIBCO.
Founded in 2000, Orchestra Networks specializes in master data management and data access management solutions, including EBX a solution that helps clients manage, govern, and share all master data, reference data, and metadata assets. The addition of the Paris-based company to TIBCO’s portfolio will help it expand its Connected Intelligence platform with data assets for operational and analytics processes.
“EBX, an industry-leading master data management solution, will be further amplified as part of the TIBCO Connected Intelligence Cloud. EBX customers will gain instant access to our leading integration and analytics capabilities for their data assets. Orchestra Networks brings an exceptional team that, with TIBCO, will continue to support their customers and partners,” said Quinn.
In the press release, Christophe Barriolade, co-founder and CEO of Orchestra Networks mentioned how the acquisition will boost EBX, saying that the company will support it on a “larger, more global scale while offering complementary API-led integration and AI-driven analytics capabilities” to Orchestra Network’s customers.
This is TIBCO’s 23rd acquisition since it was founded in 1997. TIBCO itself was acquired by Vista Equity Partners in 2014.
The company demoed at FinovateAsia 2013, showcasing how banks can leverage their clients’ transactional data to gain insight into customer behavior. At the beginning of this year, TIBCO made two C-level appointments, transitioning Matt Quinn to a new role as TIBCO’s COO and hiring Nelson Petracek as its new CTO.
