TIBCO Acquires Spotfire, Adding BI to SOA

Spotfire's business intelligence is a logical step for TIBCO as it moves up the stack: It recently unveiled complex event processing (CEP) and business process modeling products, and has always been a major player in BPM and business activity monitoring (BAM) software. However, all these higher-level products are dependent on the underlying infrastructure, which in most cases means SOA. To see the full benefits, customers will need to make sure they have SOA in place first, whether from TIBCO or one of its competitors.
