The Power of Data to Do Good #TIBCO4Good

Data is the transformative fuel that is changing the global economy. Partnering with TIBCO has allowed data-savvy businesses to lead in their respective industries and transform their strategies, cultures, and capabilities. But it’s not just businesses that are facing complex data challenges. Many of the world’s most pressing societal, educational, and scientific issues also depend on the ability to harness the power of data in order to gain insights, make smarter decisions, and implement the systems, applications, and processes that create change on a human scale.
TIBCO4Good applies the same technologies, strategies, and leadership deployed for business to the most pressing societal issues we face across the globe. TIBCO4Good is a way to come together as a community and harness data “for good.” Because nearly every complex challenge our planet and societies are facing is rooted in vast streams and reservoirs of data and confounded by the complexity of difficult-to-make decisions.
A great example of this initiative at work can be seen in the recent efforts by TIBCO’s data science team, led by Michael O’Connell, to create a Visual Analytics Hub to bring a data-centric approach to visualizing the deeper implications of the COVID-19 pandemic and build a fact-based understanding of reproduction, growth, and healthcare resources.
TIBCO + Conan Swag for Partners in Health
On a lighter note, as a part of #TIBCO4GOOD, TIBCO has kicked off a new project, inspired by the “Zoombombing” of our newest team member, Conan O’Brien. Conan crashed a recent TIBCO conference call and asked our CEO Dan Streetman, “Could I at least get a TIBCO sweatshirt out of this? We all know you have like fifty in the trunk of your car.”
Well, Conan—and everyone else eying Dan’s snazzy TIBCO jacket—now you too can purchase “TIBCO + Conan” branded apparel at www.tibcoswag.com. TIBCO will donate all proceeds from items purchased, up to a total of $50,000 to Partners in Health (PIH), a social justice organization supporting emergency response during the COVID-19 crisis, as highlighted by Conan.
Anyone around the world can shop the site and help support Partners in Health (PIH) as they mobilize high-impact programs to control the spread of COVID-19 and ensure that the most vulnerable receive access to dignified care. Learn more about how PIH is helping with COVID-19 emergency response here.
We’ll be back soon with more updates on new and upcoming TIBCO4Good Initiatives and how you can get involved. For more information on the program and the work that we’re doing, head to https://www.tibco.com/tibco4good.
