Research Benefits from Advances in Analytics

SOMERVILLE, Mass., May 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Spotfire, a division of TIBCO Software Inc. (Nasdaq: TIBX), today announced that Christian Marcazzo, Senior Director Life Sciences Analytics, will present 'Applying Next Generation Business Intelligence to Pharma R&D' at the InfoTech for Pharma and Biotech Conference being held May 20 & 21 in Basel, Switzerland. Mr. Marcazzo's presentation will offer participants insight into how they can leverage critical data to speed insights and prompt better business decisions at pharmaceutical organizations.

For the past ten years, Spotfire's software has been used to enable decision making at all of the top 25 pharmaceutical companies. In his presentation, Marcazzo will explain how the newest generation of the Spotfire platform offers research groups new and powerful workflows that can accelerate the entire screening operation including high-throughput screening, secondary screening, and high-content screening.

"This is the first release of the Spotfire platform which we are recommending for applications in Screening," said Marcazzo. "With the curve-fitting and curve-drawing capabilities, we've developed what I believe will be game changing for analysis of plate based screening data; in particular when looking at dose response screens."

The TIBCO Spotfire(R) enterprise analytics platform allows users to leverage standard interfaces and Business Intelligence (BI) data to create user experiences that speed insights and prompt better business decisions. This type of speed and flexibility is difficult to achieve quickly with traditional BI solutions. The latest release also provides an enhanced set of application programming interfaces (APIs) to allow partners and customers to build analytics applications for any business process. These APIs make it easier for companies to create a seamlessly integrated user experience, by customizing the user interface and even developing new data visualizations for the TIBCO Spotfire(R) Web Player. Security improvements provide better integration to existing infrastructure for internal and external use over the web.

The conference will be at the Radisson SAS Hotel Basel. Mr. Marcazzo will present on Wednesday, May 21st at 12:30 (local time).
