Tibco Software acquires event processing specialist StreamBase Systems

Tibco's acquisition of StreamBase Systems will allow it to add streaming capabilities to its event-processing portfolio

Tibco Software has added streaming capabilities to its event-processing portfolio with the acquisition of StreamBase Systems.

The move will strengthen Tibco's real-time data analytics offering, particularly for financial applications, the company said Tuesday, allowing it to provide an event-based alternative to batch-centric big data architectures.

StreamBase software is already used in low-latency algorithmic trading, real-time risk management, and in other capital markets applications, Tibco said.

The acquired software will sit in Tibco's event-processing portfolio alongside Tibco BusinessEvents, which can capture, model, manage event streams. Tibco has already incorporated StreamBase's offering into the products listed on its website.

Tibco is seeking two main things with its acquisition strategy: technology and domain expertise, said Tibco CTO Matt Quin in a video interview posted to the company's website.

"We're looking for great technology, ... technology and assets that can really deliver that edge," he said. In addition, the company is seeking domain expertise.

StreamBase matches both criteria, he said: "It's a really important acquisition for Tibco. ... StreamBase is really focused in capital markets."

The entire StreamBase team will join Tibco, the acquired company's CEO Mark Palmer said in a posting to the StreamBase blog.

Neither company provided financial details of the deal.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
