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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
