The View From Tibco Now: Loud Clothes & Fast Cars

SAN DIEGO -- Tibco Now -- Tibco is looking to a future tying together multiple enterprise clouds, building on a 30-year history bridging on-premises ERP systems.

At its user conference here in San Diego, Tibco Software Inc. (Nasdaq: TIBX) outlined a vision for integrating data in the cloud, in the Internet of Things and on-premises, and turning that data into insights that businesses can take action on. (See Tibco Boosts Intelligence Cloud With Analytics & Messaging.)

Customers including United Airlines and Mercedes described how they're using Tibco to deliver business value. We'll tell you about what they had to say in coming weeks, starting with United today. (See How United Airlines Uses Data to Take Pain out of Flight Delays.)

As usual, your Enterprise Cloud News correspondent was on the scene with his trusty iPhone. Here's some of what we saw:

Brad Topliff, Tibco director of innovation, certainly has an innovative fashion sense. The $99 outfit is called Science Faction, from Oppo Suits.

Re: Science Faction Kq4ym, as far as we know, directors of innovation attending conferences wear them, which is pretty cool.

Re: Science Faction Brad, as director of innovation you need to be innovative. This is not always true, but in your case you are doing a good job. This may set an example for industry events’ ettiquette. I think these events are special for wearing or doing something that bends the rules. Because, why not? Interesting for me means that is worth of attention because is different. I always use the word ”interesting” in a positive way. Of course, other people have a different meaning for the word. :D I really think wearing the Science Faction suit was a great idea. I hope you had lots of fun as well.

Re: Science Faction Bargain price! I haven't seen such stylish attire. I could see the ties selling well.

Re: Science Faction Now those were showstopping suits. At $99 what a bargain to create a bit of attention. It would be interesting to know just who buys them and where they're worn. Who knows maybe we'll be seeing a trend in everyday businesswear in print suits for under a hundred bucks?

Re: Science Faction (Susan) I guess interesting is in the eye of the beholder, but bending rules is pretty fun. I’m fortunate that TIBCO gives me the space to explore the fun side of innovation. The enterprise space is necessarily technical but even (or maybe especially) the really smart people love a good laugh.

Re: Science Faction (Joe) Check out shinesty.com. They sell Opposuits but recently started their own line where the jacket and pants are sold separately. I haven’t tried them to see if they fit as well as Opposuits but I like their branding.

Re: Science Faction Not for everyday wear, but I think they are fun for the industry events if you want to make a statement, for example. I imagine the Science Faction suit was a great and effortless conversation starter. I also checked the Website, and to my disappoitment the suits available for women are more in the Halloweeny - Christmassy line. Nothing like the Science Faction suit in a dress version. As for sizing issue you mention, I am sure they can provide with different options, if you contact them.

Re: Science Faction It's a neat outfit indeed!

I checked out the website. Cool stuff, but for everyday wear, though, this and the others on the website might be a little much. I think I'd prefer to mix and match with solid colors.

...except I just checked out the sizing, and everything seems to favor skinny, tall people with big chests -- and they don't seem to allow picking one size for the jacket and another for the pants.

Oh, well.

Contrast Was the ”Boss man” a reference to ”perhaps he was wearing a Boss suit?”

Science Faction Two things came to mind first after seeing the director of innovation in the Science Faction suit: Grimlins, and if Einstein would have worn this suit. :D This is the coolest fun suit I have seen. I would have liked to see the same in a dress version, but there is none. I was wondering about his personality. He looks like an interesting person to meet, someone who likes to brake the rules kind of person? Definitely the best picture to start the slideshow.
