TIBCO EBX, a new way to manage, govern, and share your data assets

Your business teams need to manage and share a vast number of data assets—master data, reference data, conformed dimensions, hierarchies, and meta data. The dynamism and sophistication of your data means business teams can no longer rely upon simple office automation tools or outdated data management tools to manage these assets. They need TIBCO EBX.

TIBCO EBX makes it easier to manage your data assets. Custom applications and purpose-built MDM solutions are hard to change while EBX is flexible and agile. EBX uses a unique what-you-model-is-what-you-get design approach: with applications generated on the fly and fully configurable. This eliminates the need for long, costly, and endless development projects. And EBX includes all the enterprise-class capabilities you need to create data-driven applications. Data stewardship, workflow, data quality and data integration are built right in.

Master Data

Products | Customers | Suppliers | Locations | Assets | Employees

Reference Data

Geographies | Chart of Account | Industry Codes | Standards | Hierarchies


Business terms | Taxonomies | Policies | Entitlements | Critical Data Elements

Configure your data management applications

With EBX, you use a model-driven approach to design data management applications. Then configure only the features you need. Model-driven design simplifies change management. Updates require configuration changes, not coding.

Support all enterprise data-driven use cases

Business processes come in multiple flavors. Operational business processes knit together the activities of the organization to create value. Analytical processes evaluate the performance of operations. And, governance processes control analytical and operational processes to ensure compliance with policies, regulations and laws. While each process type has different aims, their one commonality: data assets power them all.


Business team and system collaboration depends on accurate data assets. Creating, governing and distributing that operational data—customers, products, suppliers, reference data—is where EBX comes in.


EBX supports every facet of your governance program with a process-driven, governance repository to capture all your critical data elements, business terms, policies, rules and responsibilities.


Accurate BI and reporting require enterprise-wide agreement on dimensions, attributes and hierarchies. Business intelligence and big data teams govern their analytical reference data with EBX.

Drive adoption by your user community

Business Users

EBX delivers an intuitive, self-service experience to your business teams. Business users can view, search, author, edit and approve changes in a workflow-driven, collaborative user interface.

Data Stewards

With EBX, data stewards can easily discern the quality of their data and take action. They have access to sophisticated capabilities for governance, matching, profiling, cleansing, workflow monitoring, data quality analytics and audit trails.


With EBX, you can adapt your application on the fly, without long and costly development projects. Project teams have full control over data models, workflow models, business rules, UI configuration and data services.

What if Enterprise Data Management could fit in your pocket?

Introducing TIBCO EBX GO, a native iOS and Android app to access, manage and govern your data assets on the go.

Every successful data management program requires user adoption. When everyone has access to easy to use, intuitive data management capabilities, they actively contribute to improving the quality of data assets. Whether it's searching, correcting, or enriching data assets; or even participating in workflows--managing has to be as easy as sending an email or a social update. Learn more about EBX GO.

Run TIBCO EBX on the platform of your choice

Core technologies

In 2000, a group of software engineers came together to revolutionize the way organizations manage, govern, and share their data assets. They evaluated existing data management solutions and found them severely lacking. Determined to build a superior solution, they created the innovative technologies that power EBX today. And to ensure that the solution could be widely adopted, they embraced industry standards such as Java, SQL, and XML. The resulting platform delivers the flexibility and scalability you need to manage all of your data assets.

Semantic Data Store

EBX Semantic Data Store combines the flexibility of NoSQL and graph databases with the safety and consistency of SQL databases. EBX is deployed on an RDBMS (Oracle®, MS® SQL Server®, PostgreSQL® and more are supported) but provides its own object-oriented persistence layer. EBX Semantic Data Store relies on a rich data modeling language, that goes beyond the limitations of traditional relational algebra, to define complex objects and relationships. It features temporal data management for fine-grained version control and audit, and spatial data management for adapting data values to contexts through inheritance.

Data-driven Application Metamodels

EBX defines and operates a complete set of metamodels to build data management applications. It combines semantic data models, business rules definition, workflow models, data quality rules and KPIs, and UI configuration in a set of linked metamodels. This ensures great flexibility for designing and maintaining applications.

Model-driven Engine

The EBX engine generates entire data management applications from the underlying models. When you publish a change in any model—data, workflow, business rule, policy—the EBX engine versions and validates the changes and generates the user and system interfaces immediately.

In-Memory Engine

At runtime, the EBX In-memory Engine delivers high performance for complex, interactive processes, such as: on-screen maintenance of large hierarchies (million+ nodes), structured or fuzzy searching, inline match/merge, or real time validation.

D3: Distributed Architecture

D3 supports federated deployment of EBX. It ensures transactional synchronization between a master instance and slave instances. Use cases include: real time distribution clusters, geographical federation of data stores, and federated governance of global/regional/local data assets.
