Business Analytics and CEP

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Analysts at IDC have apparently covered TIBCO as a vendor in the “Business Analytics” market. I would have expected this to be mostly about predictive analytics (eg TIBCO S+) and its overlap with BI (eg TIBCO Spotfire) on the one hand, and real-time analytics and CEP (eg TIBCO BusinessEvents) on the other. But IDC are reported as viewing this as four primary segments: analytic applications, business intelligence tools, data warehousing platform software and spatial information analytics tools.” And clearly TIBCO does not play in data warehousing, and not especially (outside of CEP) in spatial information…

Per the IntelligentEnterprise article on the report: “Vendors 11 through 35 in IDC’s rankings are led in size by SPSS, Omniture, Integraph, Information Builders, ESRI and Sybase. However, in terms of momentum, the leading vendors are Netezza, QlikTech,, Omniture, Sybase, and TIBCO.”
