Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

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. ®
