PALO ALTO, Calif., April 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TIBCO Software Inc. today announced that TIBCO ActiveMatrix(TM), a single platform for managing heterogeneous service-oriented architectures (SOAs), has been named the Product of the Year in the Assembly and Integration category in the 2007 Product of the Year Awards. Presented by the editors of TechTarget's Application Development Media Group, these awards recognize the best SOA and Web service products brought to market between December 1, 2006 and November 30, 2007.

"TIBCO [ActiveMatrix] has pushed the envelope with grid architecture here," said one member of the judging panel. "It definitely helps in terms of achieving technology independence and it gives users a service platform that should be easier to scale. Most times you see 'platforms' that lack any central organizing technology. This has it and it should enable users to deploy the functionality they need only when they need it."

The Product of the Year awards were judged by the editorial staff, in conjunction with a team of users, industry experts, analysts and consultants. Winners were selected for their ability to demonstrate excellence across a host of criteria, including innovation, performance, functionality and value, as well as ease of use and ease of integration into existing environments. A total of nine Gold medal winners were chosen across eight award categories.

"TIBCO's ActiveMatrix platform helps users with SOA's inherent complexity by offering the most comprehensive suite of SOA integration, composite application development and SOA service management products available on the market today," said Rourke McNamara, director of product marketing for SOA at TIBCO Software Inc. "We are pleased that TIBCO ActiveMatrix has been honored for its innovation in the area of service assembly and integration."

ActiveMatrix(TM) includes capabilities for service integration, composite application development and governance under a single platform to better manage heterogeneous service oriented architectures (SOAs). The latest release, TIBCO ActiveMatrix 2.0, can enable customers to achieve up to 50 percent greater productivity and lower cost of ownership compared to alternative approaches.
