BEIJING, SHANGHAI, HANGZHOU, China, March 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — TIBCO Software Inc. (Nasdaq: TIBX) today announced that the Hangzhou Municipal Government has successfully completed the deployment of TIBCO Enterprise Message Service(TM) and TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks(TM) for its government information sharing and business collaboration initiative to facilitate the integration and real-time flow of data across its information systems.
Prior to the project, cross-departmental information sharing had been a major challenge for the municipal authorities, as various departments had adopted differing technology standards. In addition, the Web sites of the various levels of government — from the municipality down to villages and townships — had been developed independently, impeding timely information distribution to the public. However, using the TIBCO Enterprise Message Service as its information backbone and TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks for software integration through service-oriented architecture, the municipal government's information sharing and business collaboration initiative has been able to leverage its existing information systems, while paving the way for future services and growth.
"TIBCO's integration and real-time information processing solutions have allowed us to create a centralized, multi-level framework for information cataloging and sharing, even though our data exchanges are physically dispersed. The near instantaneous access to information we gain from this system across multiple departments empowers us to carry out our duties, including tax administration and regulatory enforcement, more efficiently, and make better policy decisions for our people," said Guo Liqiao, deputy director of Hangzhou Municipal Government Informatization Office.
Mr. Guo said TIBCO was selected for the e-government project after an evaluation of several integration and real-time information processing solutions, and an onsite visit to one of TIBCO's other customers.
"TIBCO's software was simply the fastest, most secure and most reliable solution we evaluated. And importantly, TIBCO allowed us to achieve real-time data exchange in a multi-vendor environment, so we did not need to replace the incompatible legacy applications and platforms that had been deployed throughout government," Mr. Guo explained.
As the informatization of the civil services government continues to gather momentum across China, TIBCO has set its sights on increasing its penetration into the country's e-government market.
"Bringing government services online will have a number of tangible benefits for both the authorities and the public. While enabling authorities to perform administrative duties and disseminate information quickly and more efficiently, e-government will also provide individuals and businesses with easier access to information, streamlined reporting requirements and faster transaction channels. The savings in time and money for everyone are potentially enormous," said Ram Menon, executive vice president, Worldwide Marketing, at TIBCO Software.
