StreamBase LiveView – Sales Desk Real-Time Selling?
So first up, StreamBase is I suppose the last of the original CEP companies to remain independent of the large software houses life Sybase, Microsoft, Oracle etc. It’s latest offering, LiveView, looks interesting primarily due to the business intelligence (BI) and alerting functionality coupled with the clear financial focus. LiveView UX could do with some improvement, but then I suppose StreamBase is not selling UX :) The in-memory features remind me a little of QuartetFS ActivePivot.
This blog posting by Mark (CEO StreamBase) nicely touches on the BI opportunity that LiveView or similar offer to the sales desk who’s clients are leveraging the Single Bank Platform (SBP) of sell-side Bank X.
