Tibco

I got a quick update on TIBCO Spotfire recently having last been updated on TIBCO Spotfire 6.5. Since then TIBCO has acquired Jaspersoft and created their TIBCO Analytics group. In addition TIBCO has been taken private though no organizational or business strategy changes have resulted. The various analytic products continue to be fairly independent though [...]

Brian McDonough has been writing (with Dan Vesset, Steve Hendrick, Henry Morris and others) on Decision Management at IDC for many years and he has recently published an IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Decision Management Software Platform 2014 Vendor Assessment. The report has an IDC MarketScape figure, IDC’s opinion on the Decision Management market, process and software as well as some [...]

TIBCO Spotfire 6.5 (announced last month) has new capabilities around easier access to data, location analytics and R. To support effective data discovery and visualization, TIBCO believes it is essential to allow users easy access to analytics against the increasingly wide range of data sources that are available. It’s not enough that the visualization tools [...]

First Look: Tibco Spotfire 6

I got an update from Tibco recently having last heard from them when I got an update on Spotfire 4. Since then they have partnered with Attivio for supporting unstructured data (4.5), added a new in-memory engine and support for in-database analytics as well as native support for R – the Tibco Enterprise Runtime for [...]

First Look – Spotfire 4.0

I got a quick update on Spotfire 4.0 recently (announced today – I last reviewed Spotfire in February). This release was aimed primarily at getting analytics to a wider audience through analytic dashboards and social collaboration. As we all know, many people work with others in different locations and time zones. This requires strong context [...]

Bill Gassman spoke on the role of Business Intelligence – BI – in process improvement. Bill means “big BI” – everything to do with intelligence about your business, the discipline of BI and analytics, not just a “BI” product. The road to intelligent operations he says has “haves” and “have nots” – some have BI [...]

CEP and Decision Management

Paul Vincent of Tibco presented to the OMG Decision Modeling Notation day on the impact of event processing and real-time event handling on decision management. In particular the increasing need for true real-time, almost snap decisions. Tibco sees demand for these kinds of decisions across banking and trading, supply chains, telecommunications and more. Paul used [...]

First Look – Tibco Spotfire

I got an update from TIBCO Spotfire recently, with my usual focus on operational decisions. Spotfire aim at what they call the analysis gap. Their customers typically have applications that are tailored and customized but too expensive to change, reporting that is widely distributed but inefficient (prompting users to use additional tools when needs change) [...]

The nice folks over at IDC let me take a look at IDC – Worldwide Application Development and Deployment: 2010 Predictions. I have a somewhat narrow focus (Decision Management) so only two are really in my zone. First, #10: 10. Decisioning Products Will Be Unified to Deliver a Decision Management Platform This is obviously right [...]

I am one of the featured speakers in the forthcoming Tibco series on Using Events to Add Real-Time Intelligence. It’s an online event with webinars, “booths”, and real Tibco people available to answer questions. You can register for it here.

I got a briefing this week from my friends at Tibco about their Service Performance Manager product released a couple of months ago. The product is a big step along the road to what some call “autonomic computing” in that it provides dynamic and automated monitoring and correction of service levels in a service-oriented world. [...]

Just saw the announcement that Tibco is buying Insightful. Insightful has a range of data mining tools build on the open source R algorithms as well as some proprietary pieces. This means that Tibco now has a BPM environment, a rules/event processing one, Spotfire for visualization and data mining/predictive analytics development and deployment. In theory [...]

Ken Vollmer kicked off the last day of the event with a view from the field – a survey on BPM that Forrester did at the end of 2007. The theme is that “BPM has already achieved mainstream status inside of most enterprises but we still have a long way to go to achieve the [...]

At least it’s blog cannot. I saw this post by my old friend Paul Vincent – Business rule execution: stateless/transactional, stateful/monitoring, or both? and tried to comment on it. Sadly the Tibco blog can’t add 6 and 2 and so rejected my comment (the sum was spam protection). So here’s my comment: I am not [...]

This morning I watched and listen to two old friends of mine – Wayne Eckerson of TDWI and Dan Graham of Teradata as they gave a webinar on “Approaches to operational BI” (PDF of slides, Webinar Recording). Wayne and Dan did a nice tag team discussing the principles involved and giving some Teradata-specific examples. Wayne [...]
