TIBCO unveiled a series of products and services that target service performance management, and that leverage the insights that managed complex events processing [CEP] provides. These complex events processing and service performance management find common ground -- to help provide a new level of insurance against failure for SOA and for enterprise IT architects.
This latest release adds BusinessWorks, which is available either in standalone mode or as a container hosted in the ActiveMatrix infrastructure, and Service Bus, a new lightweight enterprise service bus [ESB], that helps integrate services while using content or context-based routing.
Myriad unpredictable demands are being placed on enterprise application services as Service Oriented Architecture [SOA] grows in use. The way TIBCO handles far-flung deployment infrastructure adapt and the disparate components perform so that complex business services meet their expectations in the real world will be a judge of how successful the company will be in the real world.
TIBCO faces strong competitions from larger software companies, such as International Business Machines (IBM), Microsoft (MSFT), Oracle (ORCL), and SAP AG (SAP). It also competes with smaller software vendors of its size, that have similar product lines, such as BEA Systems (BEAS) and Sybase (SY).
