CEP/EP Reference Customers 2005-2007

On November 8th 2007, after compiling a list of CEP/EP reference customers from the open literature and public press releases, I issued a call for CEP reference customers in the Yahoo! CEP-Interest Group and on the professional networking site LinkedIn. During the past 7 weeks I provided an opportunity for all concerned to view and respond to my public worksheet.

Here are the results of the “CEP/EP Reference Customers Survey” for 2005-2007:

Apama 5
TIBCO 5
StreamBase 4
AptSoft 4
Coral8 2
Aleri 2
Agent Logic 1
BEA 1
Total CEP/EP Reference Customers (2005-2007) 25
~~~
Looking only at 2007, the total CEP/EP reference customers available in the public domain were as follows:
~~~
Apama 4
StreamBase 4
TIBCO 2
AptSoft 2
Coral8 2
Aleri 2
Agent Logic 1
BEA 1
Total CEP/EP Reference Customers (2007) 18
~~~
The criteria for inclusion in the survey were based on the following marketing and sales criteria (purely marketing criteria, not technical):
~~~
– Must be a (CEP/EP) software vendor;
– Must be an end user / customer;
– Must NOT be a partnership or OEM announcement;
– Must mention complex event processing (CEP) or event processing (EP) in the public statement; and,
– Reference must be available on the Internet and in English
~~~
Based on the results of this public survey, comments received, and experiences with the actual products by end users, I plan to followup with The CEP Blog Event Processing Awards for 2007.

Please stay tuned!
