IDG’s 2019 CIO 100 List Recognizes TIBCO and Partner Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport
TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration, API management, and analytics, today announced its innovative work with partner Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport has been recognized in the 2019 CIO 100 awards. The prestigious 32nd annual award program recognizes global organizations that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in IT. Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport was recognized for its work with TIBCO leveraging their analytics solutions in data visualization, predictive analytics, and AI, which helps the five-time FIA Formula One™ World Constructors’ Champions make critical, real-time strategic decisions that can impact race results.
One of the most successful Formula One teams in recent history, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport turned to TIBCO and its data science experts in 2017 for a solution that could help the team quickly analyze massive amounts of data for operational excellence – such as 50,000 data points per racecar, per second – both at the factory and during races. Using the TIBCO® Connected Intelligence platform, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport was able to discover patterns, increase efficiency, and better understand how external factors such as weather or competition would impact race results to gain a competitive advantage.
“We’re incredibly proud to have worked closely with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport to help improve the team’s performance through data and predictive analytics. Being named to the CIO 100 list is an impressive achievement, and we congratulate the members of both the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport and TIBCO teams who worked tirelessly to implement data-driven decisions that could make an impact on their performance,” said Matt Quinn, chief operating officer, TIBCO. “This recognition affirms how both TIBCO’s expertise in analytics and AI and the Formula One™ Champions’ forward-thinking approach to integrating technology can propel a team to victory.”
“Across the business landscape, companies everywhere recognize the vital role that an innovative, value-driven approach to information technology plays in their success,” said Maryfran Johnson, executive director, CIO Programs, IDG. “This year’s CIO 100 winning companies are inspiring examples of how IT leadership, business collaboration, and digital transformation will drive future growth.”

About the CIO 100 Awards
The annual CIO 100 Awards celebrate 100 organizations and the teams within them that are using IT in innovative ways to deliver business value, whether by creating competitive advantage, optimizing business processes, enabling growth or improving relationships with customers. The award is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence. Recipients are selected through a three-step process. First, companies fill out an online application form detailing an innovative IT and business initiative. Next, a team of external judges (many of them former CIOs) reviews the applications in depth, looking for leading-edge IT practices and measurable results. Finally, CIO editors review the judges’ recommendations and select the final 100.
