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.
They deal with organizations like Allstate, which have massive size and scale, with 750 services. People are moving away from the older ways of doing things -- from the siloed applications, the siloed business unit way of doing things -- to the SOA, services-based way of doing things, you don’t ignore the new complexities you are introducing.
SOA is helping the companies reuse services. They are making services available, so that that functionality, that code, doesn’t need to be rewritten time and time again. In doing so the company reduces the amount of work, the cost of building new applications, of building new functionality for a business organization.
