UC4 Named a Strong Performer in Complex Event Processing Platforms by Independent Research Firm

Complex Event Processing to Drive Intelligent Service Automation

BELLEVUE, WA and VIENNA, AUSTRIA--(Marketwire - August 4, 2009) - UC4 Software, a leading provider of workload automation and IT process optimization solutions, today announced it was among the select companies that independent research firm Forrester Research, Inc. invited to participate in its August 2009 report, "The Forrester Wave™: Complex Event Processing Platforms, Q3 2009." In this evaluation, UC4 was cited as a strong performer for its complex event processing platform. UC4 received a top score for its business end-user tools.

The report evaluated the solutions of nine complex event processing (CEP) vendors across several categories, including the quality of its current offering, company strategy, and market presence. UC4 was judged alongside several of the largest global enterprise technology providers, receiving a top score for several of the evaluation criteria, including business end-user tools, services and systems integrators.

This announcement comes shortly after UC4's acquisition of SENACTIVE, the award-winning leader in complex event-driven business process modelling technology. The acquisition underscores UC4's vision that real-time monitoring and analysis of complex event patterns to enable intelligent decision making will be critical to organizations needing to automate IT processes that traverse on-premise, virtualized and cloud computing platforms.

"This report and the UC4 evaluation reflects the strategic value that CEP technology can bring to customers as they strive to automate jobs, processes, applications and services that span hybrid computing environments, said Vincent Stueger, UC4 chief technology officer. "At UC4 we are building the industry's first Intelligent Service Automation solution that will support companies in an on-line on-time world, allowing them to sense and respond in real time to complex, interdependent events to optimize their IT resources."

The Forrester report reviewed two UC4 products: UC4 Decision and UC4 Insight. UC4 Decision is a powerful complex event processing tool that can process thousands of events per second based on pre-defined process models to deliver real-time intelligence to optimize IT infrastructure and service delivery. UC4 Insight is an award winning pattern mapping and advanced visualization tool that intuitively displays event patterns to enable rapid reaction and corrective action.

According to the report, "Forrester defines a CEP platform as software infrastructure that can detect patterns of events (and expected events that didn't occur) by filtering, correlating, contextualizing, and analyzing data captured from disparate live data sources to respond as defined using the platform's development tools." The report also states, "While a CEP platform can be used to develop a standalone event-driven application, CEP platforms are also often part of a larger business process."
