PALO ALTO, Calif., May 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TIBCO Software Inc. today announced that it has been named one of START-IT Magazine's "Hottest Companies of 2008," an annual listing that recognizes software and technology providers for innovative solutions targeting the manufacturing industry. Selected by the START-IT editors, winners were singled out for their revenue growth, important client wins, and significant events and accomplishments during the past year.

"The companies who have been named 'hot' this year are among the leading-edge technology providers within manufacturing.

The 25 winning companies this year are having a great impact on the manufacturing space as they strive to provide the most complete, innovative technology possible to their customers."

TIBCO reached a number of milestones impacting the manufacturing industry in 2007. TIBCO added a host of new enhancements to its flagship MDM solution, TIBCO Collaborative Information Manager(TM), enabling manufacturers to more effectively leverage critical information across the supply chain. TIBCO CIM provides a single platform to manage core assets such as product information and to automate critical processes such as new product introduction. Further, the TIBCO solution integrates seamlessly into a service-oriented architecture.

It offers an industry-first: cross-domain relationship capabilities for greater control and visibility of information, giving users improved ability to model and enforce key relationships, such as between products and vendors or products and geographies. This is vital to engaging in strategic activities such as optimizing a distribution network or strategic sourcing. In the last year, TIBCO has expanded its manufacturing customer base outside of its traditional Consumer Packaged Goods and Retail verticals to other areas, including Energy, Telecomm Equipment, Electronic Parts, Durables and Tools.
