Posted on 03/01/09 14 Comments

Recently Peter Lin was kind enough to stop by and post this comment to our post, CEP Software Saves the Universe! Here’s my [Peter Lin's] bias perspective as a user and developer of expert system shell[s].

The Genesis of Complex Event Processing: Asymmetric Capabilities

Posted on 09/29/08 No Comments

More often than not, folks working in the field of complex event processing do not truly understand CEP.   We often see the same folks try to position and mischaracterize CEP as business process orchestration, business process management, event-driven architecture or even an evolution of service-oriented architecture.    Well-intended, this mischaracterization of CEP is often for sales [...]

Today I will discuss a general approach to model air traffic control (ATC) using our CEP/EP reference architecture which is an application of the mature JDL multisensor data fusion model. ATC is an excellent working example of complex event processing.   Radar and GPS provide the basic sensory information to accurately track and trace the position of each aircraft [...]

The Kum Bai Ya of Event Processing

Posted on 09/01/08 3 Comments

Kindred spirit Marc Adler mentions being a bit ”turned off” by the sniping back-and-forth in the CEP/EP blog-o-sphere.  This was exactly how I felt in early 2006 when folks were sniping back and forth about SQL standards and event stream processing (ESP).  A group of vendors had created some stream processing engines and all were in “power positioning” mode with the acronyms “ESP” and ”CEP”, hoping to ride [...]

A post in  Technology content of current CEP products? reminds me of why I rarely, if ever, agree with anything that comes out of Aleri’s marketing team.   To fair to Jeff, it is not only Aleri but others, who continually misdefine business process management (BPM) as CEP. Jeff uses the example, “Smart Order Routing” as an example [...]

On CEP as a Discipline

Posted on 08/05/08 No Comments

In  CEP as a Discipline,  David Luckham wrote:  “Actually, it is fair to say that some of CEP can be found in other disciplines. Event processing has been going on in one form or another, for the past 50 years. Simulation, Networking, Active DBs, Middleware. { …. } CEP has only just begun. The foundations [...]

The Magical ATM Card and SMS Message in Thailand

Posted on 08/03/08 1 Comment

It was not too long ago that I penned Keyloggers: Why Banks Need Two-Factor Authentication. In that post, I briefly mentioned how a number of banks in Thailand use inexpensive SMS-based two-factor authentication (2FA) with one-time password (OTP) to authenticate transactions. One of my favorite banks in Thailand is K-Bank. With K-Bank I can simply [...]
