Tibco Software is focusing on latency and performance in an upgrade to its Tibco Rendezvous messaging software.
Rendezvous 8 lowers latency down to small milliseconds in the publishing of messages. "We're reducing the latency by up to 30%," says Jeff Kristick, Tibco vice president of marketing.
With Rendezvous 8, the company is looking to meet the needs of customers in SOA or in applications like financial services.
IDC analyst Maureen Fleming says "[Rendezvous 8.0] will help Tibco re-capture the performance leadership position in the market for event-driven middleware, which is critical for the company's long-term success.
"Message-oriented middleware has been around for a long time, and Tibco, for all intents and purposes, invented this type of middleware," she says.
