Acquisitions of CEP technologies


Two acquisitions of CEP (Complex Event Processing) technology companies were announced a couple of weeks ago. Both were a bit surprising to me. It caught my attention because the core of our AutoPilot solution and the reason we win against our competitors is our internally developed CEP engine that helps us provide proactive monitoring to our customers.

For the past 10 years Tibco claimed to be the thought leader in CEP, which is the core of their Business Event Processing (BEP) offering. It looks like StreamBase, which used to be the only pure play CEP company, had a better technology, announced Big Data integration and had more traction than Tibco in capital markets.

Software AG claims to have a CEP engine as part of their WebMethods Business Events offering yet acquired Apama from Progress. Certainly Progress does not have any vision of CEP in their future plans.

Interesting, isn’t it?
