What is TIBCO Cloud™ Data Streams?

TIBCO Cloud Data Streams is a hosted web service that allows you to create data streams in the cloud. Data Streams are managed windows of event data from a streaming data source that become available for analysis in applications, like TIBCO Spotfire. Want to see how data in motion looks like in Spotfire? Check out our Demo Gallery! For example, Streaming Car Data or Real-time Flight Tracker demo.

How is TIBCO Cloud™ Data Streams differentiated from the competition?

For enterprises who want to easily use streaming data into their business intelligence platforms, who want to consume, in-motion, continuously-generated data for the purpose of analysis and want Business operations/domain experts, Software development experts to:

Unlike traditional BI platforms, our TIBCO Cloud Data Streams allows advanced analysis with live, streaming data. All visualizations are dynamically interactive, reflecting real-time analysis and predictions directly on event streams. Can have historical and streaming data at the same time from multiple traditional and streaming data sources. Currently, traditional BI platforms require major coding and development to make a dashboard real-time. With TIBCO Cloud Data Streams, now users can connect natively with those sources with a wizard-driven platform that requires zero code.

Open source Streaming Platforms are geared towards developers and this causes that the real-time data rarely gets to business analysts or business operations. TIBCO Cloud Data Streams is designed to facilitate streaming data to the business user, as it makes it super easy to connect natively to streaming data sources, it is in the cloud, and connects seamlessly with Spotfire, in minutes instead of months or even years.
