AjaxWorld Magazine has posted an interesting post about TIBCO working closely with Microsoft. I find this quite interesting as TIBCO is usually thought to be more of a Java shop.
Below is an excerpt from the post.
TIBCO announced that the company is working closely with Microsoft to make it easier for customers to use their respective technologies together – giving them more power and flexibility over their service-oriented architectures.
The new technology integration and support announcements are focused on:
* TIBCO and Microsoft Windows Communication Foundation – enables Microsoft .NET Framework services and applications to easily communicate using TIBCO’s Enterprise Message Service platform, giving these applications a degree of reliability and scalability not previously possible.
* TIBCO’s selection of Microsoft Silverlight for Rich Internet Application development – Delivers the best experience for customers that have large-scale deployment and scalability requirements and complements what can be done using AJAX.
These announcements are the first wave of commitments focused on making it easier for customers to take advantage of their existing IT investments in software from Microsoft and TIBCO.
“We want to help customers make the most of their existing technology investments and provide them with the tools and infrastructure to continue to innovate," said Burley Kawasaki, director of the Connected Systems Division at Microsoft Corp. “By working with TIBCO to enhance interoperability with Windows Communication Foundation, we will make it easier for developers to create services across platforms.”

While much of this may be marketing speak it is interesting to see them "embrace" Microsoft at least to a degree.
