PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TIBCO Software Inc. today announced the general availability of its latest release of master data management (MDM) solution -- TIBCO Collaborative Information Manager(TM) 7.0. The new version offers industry-first cross-catalog relationship capabilities for greater visibility across your business by turning raw data into actionable insight, and embedded distributed caching features for high-performance data throughput. Today's announcement builds on the company's commitment to helping customers realize the full benefits of a service-oriented architecture (SOA) using an integrated data services platform.

As a collaborative user-friendly application TIBCO Collaborative Information Manager empowers business users to maintain and manage the information critical to their functions.
