TIBCO Software Inc. has announced that TIBCO StreamBase®, the company's streaming data analytics platform, has been recognized as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Streaming Analytics Platforms, Q3 2014 from Forrester Research, Inc.
Big Data Streaming Analytics allow a business to process and act on massive amounts of information while it's still moving, as opposed to waiting for data to come to rest in a data warehouse or Hadoop. The technology is being used increasingly as new sources of data become common, such as streaming sensor data from the Internet of Things, streaming social media data like Twitter, and streaming mobile information from apps.
According to Forrester, "The velocity of business demands streaming analytics", with a 66% increase in the use of streaming analytics in the past two years. Products in the report were rated on a number of criteria to evaluate current offerings, strategy, and market presence. TIBCO achieved the highest possible score for Implementation Support and Ability to Execute.
"TIBCO offers the most comprehensive platform for processing and acting on live and historical data," said Mark Palmer, vice president and general manager, event processing, TIBCO. "This includes TIBCO BusinessEvents for developing complex business rules, TIBCO StreamBase for streaming analytics, and TIBCO StreamBase LiveView Data Mart, the only data mart in the industry specifically designed to be a real-time analytics platform enabling users to visualize information in motion, rather than at rest."
