TIBCO Streaming

Taking data from various sources including files, databases, web services, applying some complex rules, transforming, aggregating and producing a result. This is what SB does best.
- If one needs connectivity to special services as secured databases or web services, building interactive web apps, those are probably tasks that shall be addressed with different tools.

TIBCO Streaming

  • Processing events in real-time with real low latency and high throughput.
  • 100% visual program language, which can be extended by common languages like Java, Python and .NET.
  • Reduced time to prototype, create an application and deployment, which reduces the software lifecycle.
  • Real robust engine and server. Barely heard of customers having issues in production.

Cons

Confluent Platform

  • Cloud service might need more granular configuration.

TIBCO Streaming

  • Not all problems are suited to the event driven paradigm.
  • As the complexity of an application grows, finding your way around code in the GUI takes some getting used to.
  • The StreamBase development environment is built in Eclipse, which is not everyone's cup of tea.

The support from the Confluent platform is great and satisfying. We have been working with Confluent for more than a year now. They sent out resident architects to help us set up Confluent cluster on our cloud and help us troubleshoot problems we have encountered. Overall, it has been a great experience working with the Confluent Platform.

Alternatives Considered

Confluent Platform

We chose to use the Confluent Platform because they provide enterprise-grade customer service support. Whenever we have trouble setting up or using the service, we can create a ticket for them and it will be resolved pretty fast. Kafka is the open-source software that comes without warranty.

We are using Dataflow (by Google).The development time in StreamBase is definitely shorter because its GUI based. Dataflow handles late arrivals after the window closes, not sure StreamBase can do that. Dataflow can run GCP as a managed service which is why we chose that tool for our new product.

TIBCO Streaming

  • While we haven't specifically integrated StreamBase into our product development, it has allowed us to see the benefits of real-time streaming data.
  • We have much more visibility into how our longer term roadmap will look and what we should focus on.
