TIBCO's new CTO to drive 'technological excellence' in APAC & Japan

20 Jan 17

TIBCO has named Robert Merlicek as the new chief technology officer for the Asia Pacific & Japan regions.

In this new role, Merlicek will provide leadership and coordination in the implementation of TIBCO’s technology vision in APJ, and will be based in Australia.

He will also work with Australian and Asian customers on their journey to transform their organisations to digital, data-driven environments.

Matt Quinn, executive vice president, products & technology, and CTO, TIBCO, says that Merlicek is an outstanding business executive and strategist who has over 25 years of experience in technology architecting and implementation.

“Robert’s expertise across the telecommunications, finance, and logistics sector is particularly critical in helping our Asia Pacific customers benefit from TIBCO’s technology prowess, enabling them to turn insights into action,” explains Quinn.

Prior to joining the TIBCO team, Merlicek’s most recent role was director of strategic solutions. It was there that he led the team on all Eventing and Fast Data platforms in APJ, with a focus on utilising TIBCO’s unique Complex Event Processing capabilities.

Previously, Merlicek also headed TIBCO’s APJ Global Communication Practice, where he worked with telecommunications organisations to deliver complex deployments of big data initiatives and platforms to customers globally.

“I look forward to building on TIBCO’s leadership position in driving technological excellence,” says Merlicek.

“As more companies in Asia and Australia embrace digital platforms, business leaders are taking a more active role in analytics and information projects. However, becoming digital is still a massive challenge for most organisations who find it difficult to transform that vision into a reality,” he explains.

“At TIBCO, we are committed to helping our customers realise the full value of interconnecting everything and augmenting their intelligence with data, transforming their business into a fully digital enterprise.”
