So more consolidation announcements mean its time to update the CEP Market graphic. And an observation that the 10th anniversary of CEP technology is nigh, per some vendors’ start dates. Probably we should really celebrate the first decade of CEP on the anniversary of David Luckham’s book in 2 years.
I had a comment on the “start dates” for solutions in the last iteration… however my excuse is that neither I, nor Google, have good access to this (occasionally sensitive) information. I have tried to set the “start point” for a “CEP offering” as the first customer announcement / sale, except for the solutions which no longer exist (which are simply there for as a historical record). Of course, updates, suggestions and ommisions gratefuly received.
One thing I will try and expand for next time is the *type* of CEP technology used or offered. For example, which of these offer cache, or graphical dashboards, or other techniques? It might also be useful to have a rough idea (where available) of the number of users / market share, which is data usually given to the analyst companies.
