PerkinElmer and Tibco Software have entered into an exclusive strategic relationship. Under the terms of the agreement, PerkinElmer has licensed the exclusive, worldwide rights to the Tibco Spotfire software platform in certain scientific research and development markets, including basic and preclinical development applications in life sciences as well as R&D, quality assurance and quality control applications in chemical, petrochemical, environmental, food and drink, and academia.
Combining the depth of PerkinElmer’s domain knowledge and solutions with the analytical capabilities of Tibco Spotfire will provide what the companies state will be a broader, richer set of analytical solutions for the research market. As a result, PerkinElmer will take responsibility for growing and servicing the Tibco Spotfire business in these markets.
‘How scientists capture and visualise their data through the Tibco Spotfire platform is fundamental to how scientists conduct their work. Spotfire is a critical data analysis tool for the R&D community and complements PerkinElmer’s informatics offering by adding search and data visualisation, which are among the most pressing business requirements of life sciences, diagnostics and environmental laboratories, worldwide,’ said Mike Stapleton, general manager of Informatics at PerkinElmer.
‘Through this strategic relationship, we are very excited to offer scientists a complete package of data generation, data management as well as data analysis and visualisation to better harness information for more informed insights and decisions. The interoperability of PerkinElmer’s E-Notebook with the Tibco Spotfire platform puts all information in one place for our customers.’
