Even Robin Bloor can get snookered once in a while

Robin Bloor is one of the best analysts around — which doesn’t say much about his eponymous firm, since he no longer works there, but I digress. Even so, he evidently got snookered by a Truviso spokesperson, as evidenced by this article.

Apparently, Truviso convinced him that other CEP firms execute one query at a time, while Truviso executes a bunch of queries at once. Well, the latter part of that is presumably true, but it’s hardly the big differentiatior for Truviso Robin would have one believe. That’s what everybody else — StreamBase, Coral8, Progress Apama, et al. — do too. I wouldn’t be surprised if Truviso had a somewhat different architecture for doing it (each vendor describes its approach in rather different language), or even if this were a particular focus and strongpoint of theirs. But fundamentally, all the CEP vendors are doing the same thing.
