Tibco sharpens mobile apps for its Tibbr enterprise social software

The product now runs on the new BlackBerry 10 OS devices

Tibco is revamping and extending the mobile access to its Tibbr enterprise social networking software, adding support for more smartphones and tablets, and upgrading its mobile user interfaces and functionality.

Tibbr, which has iOS, Android and BlackBerry applications, is broadening its support for newer BlackBerry devices -- the Z10 and Q10 smartphones and the Playbook tablets.

It is also overhauling its mobile applications in a variety of ways, such as sharpening their understanding of usage patterns to shorten the number of steps required for users to access information.

The mobile applications will also factor in more data from users' enterprise social connections in order to proactively surface and bring to their attention people, posts, documents, links and other content that Tibbr determines is relevant to them.

In addition, the mobile applications have been re-designed to make it easier for users to shift from viewing information in Tibbr to acting on that information in the appropriate third-party business application, like a CRM suite or an accounting software.

With the Android app upgrade, it'll now be possible to run Tibbr on any and all Android smartphones and tablets.

However, the company isn't yet providing an application for Windows Phone OS smartphones nor for Windows RT and Windows 8 tablets, although those users can access a mobile-optimized version of Tibbr from their Windows devices' browsers.

"It's a BYOD world," said Ram Menon, Tibco's president of social computing. "So our focus is on mobile ubiquity."

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
