Vitria Technology Inc’s about to ship software called Agiliti which can execute instructions based upon event data integrated from multiple application and database sources running atop its Velociti publish-and-subscribe event delivery infrastructure. Agiliti, previously code-named Ice, includes a graphical programming tool for writing the instructions or business processes which can be amended on the fly. Agiliti works in conjunction with real-time event interfaces or connectors which convert database, application or messaging information into a format which can run on Velociti’s Corba architecture. Mountain View, California-based Vitria offers connectors for Oracle, Informix, SQL Server, IBM MQSeries, Microsoft Falcon, Oracle AQ and SAP R/3. In addition, each can publish or subscribe to event data via the connectors. Up on Unix and NT servers, prices go from $35,000 for a single server license. Vitria counts FedEx (package tracking) and Charles Schwab (order management) as its poster boy accounts and says a typical installation costs between one and several hundred thousand dollars. Vitria says Agiliti and Velociti can integrate processes faster and more cheaply than other solutions from the likes of Tibco, Neon, Active Software or CrossRoads. Additional application connectors – which are priced separately from Agiliti – and services are on their way plus the ‘Martini’ decision support system which can analyse event data. Martini is due next year along with an Agiliti management system which will ship in the first quarter of next year. Vitria’s just won $9.5m first round venture capital to beef up its distribution and marketing. To date it’s been privately funded by its founders who made their money selling Tibco to Reuters. It’s currently at around 45 employees and claims to be profitable. It claims it’s negotiating bundling deals with more than one vendor. Velociti is written in C++, everything else is Java-based. Vitria’s integrating Agiliti with NetDynamics Inc’s application development and deployment system and Visigenic Software Inc’s object request broker.
