Vivek Ranadivé
Vice Chairman

Vivek Ranadivé founded TIBCO in 1997 with the vision of bringing real-time technology into the mainstream. His acclaimed New York Times business bestseller The Power of Now: How Winning Companies Sense and Respond to Change Using Real-time Technology (1999) has been widely used in academia and been the subject of numerous interviews. His subsequent book, The Power to Predict (2006), shows the impact of predictive business on mainstream companies from Procter & Gamble to Harrah’s and reveals how companies can break new ground in their quest to anticipate customers’ needs, create new opportunities, and predict and sidestep unwelcome surprises.

Ranadivé has appeared as a featured expert on real-time computing on CNBC and in publications such as The Economist, Fast Company, and Red Herring. He has consistently been recognized as a visionary for the future of business integration, securing him a place in InfoWorld’s 2002 Top Ten Technology Innovators. Ranadivé was recognized by Ernst & Young as a 2002 Software Entrepreneur of the Year. In 2008, he was named the South Asian CEO of the Year by SAMBAA. He was also featured in “Annals of Innovation: How David Beats Goliath,” a New Yorker article by Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point and Outliers, as an example of innovators who win by “breaking the rules.”

Prior to founding TIBCO, Ranadivé was president and founder of a UNIX consulting company. Previously, he held management and engineering positions with Ford Motor Company, M/A-Com Linkabit, and Fortune Systems. He is a frequent presenter on such topics as the future of integration, enabling real-time business, and unleashing the power of information across enterprises to become more competitive. Ranadivé earned an MBA from Harvard Business School, where he was a Baker Scholar. He received both a Master’s and Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
