Tibco Software has launched a new platform for customers to build applications specific to their enterprise.
Tibco Silver will run on cloud infrastructure provided by Amazon. The platform is geared towards customers "who want to make what they do unique", according to Tibco product marketing director Rourke McNamara.
"Customers will be given access to a web site where they can build their own enterprise applications that automatically comply with governance standards and regulations," he said.
Tibco claimed that the resulting application will have built-in support for enterprise content systems such as those supplied by SAP, Oracle and Siebel.
"Since no business application is standalone these days, this integration capability is important," added McNamara.
Tibco plans to extend Silver's support for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud to other cloud platforms, such as Rackspace.
Tibco Silver will also include "self-aware elasticity", so that every application built on the platform will automatically scale to the required load.
"So if users of an application increase by 100, Tibco Silver will increase the number of machines the application is using and scale back if that load decreases," said McNamara.
