Why Read This
Forrester evaluated nine complex event processing (CEP) platforms using 114 criteria and found Progress Software and Aleri to be standout Leaders because of their top scores in the event processing features and strategy categories. Solid features and strategy also helped IBM, StreamBase Systems, and TIBCO Software find their way into the Leaders' circle. Coral8, Oracle, and UC4 are Strong Performers: Comparing scores using Forrester's default weightings, these vendors' current offering scores are strong enough for them to become Leaders, but their overall strategies are a step behind. Oracle grazed the Leaders' circle. EsperTech, the only open source option, is also a Strong Performer.
