We use TIBCO BusinessWorks here at FedEx for enterprise monitoring and reporting of historical and real-time business performance. That statement accurately represents the BW usage in my immediate group. Other teams in my department (FedEx Services) use BW to provide services to other applications across the enterprise. Expounding on its use in my group, BW realizes our business rules. The first application I used it for, as an example, examined 13 months of raw, historical shipment data from a TeraData database. Hovering in the billions of rows worth of data, handing it straight to Spotfire was a moot point. This is where I used BW to apply business rules on and continuously aggregate the data into more condensed, meaningful Oracle tables.
