Mountain View, CA – April 4, 2016 – WSO2 today announced that it has been cited by Forrester Research, Inc., as a strong performer in The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Streaming Analytics, Q1 2016 report1 published, March 30, 2016. The report’s findings were based on a 26-criteria evaluation of the 15 companies that Forrester has identified as leading vendors in the streaming analytics market. The report is available from Forrester at https://www.forrester.com/report/The+Forrester+Wave+Big+Data+Streaming+Analytics+Q1+2016/-/E-RES129023 (subscription or purchase required for access).

The Forrester report states, “Streaming analytics are critical to building contextual insights for Internet of Things, mobile, Web, and enterprise applications.” The report goes on to observe that, “Application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals should not dismiss streaming analytics as a form of ‘traditional analytics’ used for postmortem analysis. Far from it—streaming analytics analyzes data right now, when it can be analyzed and put to good use to make applications of all kinds contextual and smarter.”

Report’s Evaluation of WSO2 Complex Event Processor

In its evaluation of WSO2, which was based on WSO2 Complex Event Processor 4.0, the Forrester report notes, “WSO2 is an open source middleware provider that includes a full spectrum of architected-as-one components such as application servers, message brokers, enterprise service bus, and many others. Its streaming analytics solution follows the complex event processor architectural approach, so it provides very low-latency analytics. Enterprises that already use WSO2 middleware can add CEP seamlessly. Enterprises looking for a full middleware stack that includes streaming analytics will find a place for WSO2 on their shortlist as well.”

“The huge amount of data generated from the Internet of Things, mobile devices, and Web apps hold valuable keys to serving customers better, creating new business and revenue models, driving greater efficiency, and ensuring robust security,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2 founder, CEO and chief architect. “We are excited to be identified by Forrester as a strong performer in its Big Data Streaming Analytics Wave report. We believe that it validates our commitment to democratizing access to real-time insights by combining high performance and a small footprint for analytics at the edge with our open source WSO2 CEP product.”
