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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
