Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO StreamBase

Our primary focus is trading automation. We rely on Spotfire Streaming for rapid development of real time event driven systems, providing tailored solutions to internal and external clients.


  • Rapid development of real time, event driven systems, solving many concurrency problems by design.
  • Drag and drop development interface is intuitive.
  • Robust run time. We have not had a single incident where a deployed Spotfire Streaming application has fallen over of its own accord.
  • Easy integration with any other system though well defined APIs.


  • 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 Spotfire Streaming development environment is built in Eclipse, which is not everyone's cup of tea.
  • Positive. Spotfire Streaming has allowed us to leverage the time of a small development team greatly, due to the rapid development cycle it lends itself to.
Around 2010 a handful of vendors launched Complex Event Processing frameworks, of which Spotfire Streaming was one. Between competitors such as Coral8, Apama CEP and the open source EsperTech, we liked the well thought out way Spotfire Streaming implemented the CEP paradigm, the robustness of the runtime, the easy of use of the drag-and-drop development environment and the easy extensibility provided by the APIs.
Real time, event driven system development.
