Except in press release land, the words "unleashed" and SOA – (OK so it is an acronym)- are rarely seen in the same sentence. But conjoined they are in the announcement for Tibco’s latest product "unleashed", Portal Builder 5.
This offers a way to build a service-oriented architecture (SOA) for “information assets” using a unified presentation layer, namely a web portal.
Now for some company pitch: "PortalBuilder 5 ... consumes services and easily integrates non-SOA applications and content to enable composite applications that efficiently deliver targeted, user-centric views to the right people at the right time."
Cost? $200,000 per production server.
More press release, more spec here.
Last week, Piper Jaffrey, the US investment bank published a bullish note on Tibco. It maintained an “outperform” rating on the company, citing the "company's current upside potential and the possibility of a takeover offer", Forbes.com reports. ®
