This partnership addresses a specific market need: enterprises are looking to simplify integration.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (PRWEB) April 30, 2013

Liferay, Inc., a recognized leader in the enterprise portal market, today announced a multi-phase partnership with TIBCO Software Inc. that will deliver significant benefits to enterprises at significantly competitive prices. Available Q3 2013 for purchase from Liferay is a series of Liferay enterprise Connectivity Adapters (eC Adapters) that leverage TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks™ to simplify integration of Liferay Portal with multiple systems.

"Liferay Portal is a sophisticated, enterprise-ready platform that combines well with our innovative TIBCO solutions,” said Tom Laffey, Executive Vice President of Products at TIBCO. “We anticipate both ecosystems to benefit from our aligned strategies to solve important issues for our customers, and within the industry."

Following the availability of the Liferay eC Adapters, Liferay’s partner ecosystem will be able to leverage the same cost advantages for developing turnkey business solutions that integrate into backend systems using the ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks™ adapters and plugins. Each solution will contain a portal-based application that can connect through ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks to backend systems, providing a complete solution at a significant price advantage.

"This partnership addresses a specific market need: enterprises are looking to simplify integration, but direct integration, even if between two leading solution providers, does not follow architectural best practices —this partnership brings customers an independent, open architecture, so they can retain flexibility in their long-term IT decisions," said Paul Hinz, Chief Marketing Officer at Liferay, Inc. "Liferay’s customers and community will value the leading capabilities of TIBCO’s solutions and TIBCO’s customers will appreciate Liferay’s portal features and community strength."

The Liferay eC Adapters will be available in Q3 2013. The two companies also plan to offer additional support packages and sales support for joint efforts in the future.
