- Deliver a standardised technology platform across different business units
TIBCO Software Inc, a global leader in integration, API management, and analytics, together with XL Axiata, a leading mobile telecommunications services operator in Indonesia, announced a strategic alliance with the objective of strengthening the data science project, a pilot initiative of XL Axiata.
As one of Tibco’s customers in Asia, XL Axiata understands that this new collaboration will allow them to equip their data scientists with the tools they need to work effectively and provide them with the most innovative techniques and technologies to address pressing issues at hand.
In addition to offering its robust analytics solutions like Tibco Data Science, this growing partnership will also embrace the potential for cloud technology in specific deployment areas of the data science project.
“Enterprises have recognised the importance of data analytics from the business perspective. It shapes and transforms the way they engage with their customers to remain competitive,” said Melissa Ries, general manager, Asia Pacific and Japan, Tibco.
“This is true especially for developing countries like Indonesia, which is one of the fastest growing consumer markets in the world.”
Ries added, “Working with XL Axiata, we believe that the data scientists of XL Axiata will be equipped with the right tools to help them adapt to the rising demand for accurate data analysis. Ultimately, we want to enhance the way they work by allowing them to tap into the processing power of learning trends, and to utilise Artificial Intelligence (AI) in data analysis.”
“We are confident that joining forces with Tibco will deliver a standardised technology platform across different business units,” said Keri Oetarto, group head, information technology, XL Axiata.
“We believe that Tibco’s seasoned experience will help us build our capabilities in data science. This collaboration will also allow us to ensure our data scientists remain well aware of today’s wave of digital growth in the regional and global landscape.”
XL Axiata’s data scientists will be provided with an advanced computational engine and development environment for widely used statistical language supported by R, Python, and other related languages.
This initiative will empower these users to implement the technology more efficiently, especially the language and libraries, in an environment within the broader enterprise-wide infrastructure.
In addition to the collaboration with XL Axiata, Tibco has been working with various companies from different industries in the region, such as educational institutions, to support their digital journey.
