Marc Adler: Analytics are an Integral Part of the CEP Stack

In Recent Buyouts, Marc Adler of Citigroup blogs “Despite what the various pundits of the CEP world say, I still think that analytics are an integral part of the CEP stack.”

Mark also says something else I agree with, “… [TIBCO] Business Events [ … is …] a more workflow-oriented product, something that you would NOT use to pump Level2 quotes through and create algo apps.”

Kudos to Marc!  Very insightful. Keep on blogging!

    Funnily enough, Marc’s original comment on TIBCO CEP applied to TIBCO BusinessWorks – which of course *is* an event orchestration tool (similar to workflow). Not sure if I would relate BusinessEvents to “workflow” though, as it has *no* orchestration mechanism (outside of the state model, being primarily about events and rules), and *no* manual user management… versus something like iProcess and the WfMC definitions. But then again, it *can* be used for event-driven process modelling …

    Hi Paul,

    I am sure Marc knows the difference betweeen TIBCO BusinessEvents and TIBCO BusinessWorks. As you know well, blogging can take a lot of time and Marc simply made a typo.

    Since workflow is rule-based and TIBCO’s BE is rule-based, it is natural for folks to tag BE as orchestration-oriented. This is also congruent with how BE have been used with a number of TIBCO customers.

    Yours faithfully, Tim

    <> Do you mean “in the sense that any orchestration can be broken down to, and therefore represented as, a set of rules”? If so, I concur, but note that in model-driven engineering, orchestrations are not conventionally considered (or implemented as) “rule based”.
