TIBCO Software (, a global leader of enterprise integration and analytics software, and the TIBCO LABS™ ( innovation team are excited to announce this IoT and sustainability hackathon!

IoT and sustainability are broad subjects, offering plenty of opportunities for technology innovation and creativity. So, for this hackathon, we have kept the boundaries small to make sure the ideas are big! The requirement is to propose projects that address one or more environmental challenges we face across the globe today using Project AIR.

From enhancing energy efficiency and reducing global emissions to making cities “smarter,” the Internet of Things (IoT) and sustainability are natural partners, so please focus your submissions on this combination. Be creative, and remember that while submissions can target suggestions such as those that follow, you can also propose other ideas; these are just a few thoughts to get you going.

Ready to get started? Let’s start hacking and solve some of our toughest environmental challenges!
