TIBCO Rides the Forrester Wave


TIBCO continues to lead the industry as a top performer in business integration technologies, according to The Forrester Wave. Read about how TIBCO is empowering businesses to refine their business processes for better efficiency and lower costs.

Much like Gartner’s ubquitous hype cycle, the Forrester wave has come to be recognized as a key leading indicator of new and established technologies that the IT world can trust and count on. Given the ever-popular rise of SOA, BPM, and other business integration-related disciplines, more and more businesses are looking to the horizon for while technologies in these disciplines can give them the best value and performance needed to improve business processes. While more and more new technologies are appearing in the marketplace, it seems that TIBCO continues to deliver the results that businesses are looking for in a comprehensive business solution, according to a recent Forrester Wave report.

The Forrester Wave is more than just an audit of what’s hot and what’s not in IT. In fact, the findings are based on a 109-point criteria that takes into account a wide range specific variables, in order to provide a level playing for all viable, mainstream technologies out there n the market today. Ken Vollmer, who spearheaded the report, has this to say:

“In Forrester’s 109-criteria evaluation of both commercial and open source enterprise service bus (ESB) vendors, we found that Software AG, Tibco Software (Tibco), Oracle, and Progress Software are Leaders because of their broad functionality across the architecture, orchestration, mediation, connection, and change and control areas of this evaluation.”

The report goes on to illustrate that Forrester considers an ESB’s ability to provide maximum Integration Capability in a small package to be a critical feature in what makes a suite of services like TIBCO so viable for a wide range of different businesses.

In an e-mail to their partners and potential clients, TIBCO recently highlighted being chosen as part of Forrester’s ESB Wave, adding that: “With TIBCO ActiveMatrix Service Bus as your foundation, you can easily extend your SOA investment to include Composite Applications, SOA Governance, Process Orchestration, and BPM as your needs grow.” TIBCO‘s marketing pitch also illuminates how ActiveMatrix Service Bus not only gives companies a lot of power and functionality in one complete package, but also has the scalability to grow with the business over time, thus extending the life cycle of the tools and the overall value of the investment from an SOA perspective.
