- TIBCO Scribe Insight Adapter for Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Don’t you love learning the ins and outs of a product only for it to go away? Very helpful.
Crestwood will continue to offer support regardless of the TIBCO support window closing and there are great long-term alternatives that we can help to evaluate for your business. For instance, TIBCO Cloud Integration or SmartConnect are great alternatives. It is best to speak with a Crestwood Client Account Manager to help guide your decision making.
In the short-term, Crestwood is offering an Extended Support program for TIBCO Scribe. By converting a perpetual license into a TIBCO Cloud Integration subscription, end users will have access and be entitled to Extended Support for TIBCO Scribe Insight v7.9.5 through November 30th, 2023.
The countdown to November is on so there’s no time to waste. The timeline for an upgrade is typically 4-6 weeks depending on the client’s availability for testing. The test phase is the biggest variable in how long it takes to make sure all areas are functioning well so schedule time in advance and a Client Account Manager and we’ll guide you through the process.
