Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS)

Posted on 01/01/09 1 Comment

Does Amazon SQS and other “messaging as a service” applications mean that companies can start to think about reducing their ongoing expenses of licensed or hosted messaging systems? According to Amazon, Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) offers a reliable, highly scalable, hosted queue for storing messages as they travel between computers. By using Amazon […]

The Enemy of CEP is CEP Vendors

Posted on 11/01/08 No Comments

Recently I have been reading so many laughable posts by CEP software vendors, it makes me want to cry! Vendors are still confusing CEP and EDA.  Vendors are touting CEP as BRMS.   There is so much CEP misinformation on the netwaves that it pains me to read my Google alerts these days! I was planning […]

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 […]

CEP is Not Low Latency Messaging, EAI or ESB

Posted on 09/03/08 3 Comments

In respose to CEP is Not BPM, BAM, BRE, BRMS or SOA, fellow blogger Mark Palmer posts, Smart Order Routing and CEP – Made for Each Other.   Mark does a good job describing his perspective on smart order routing (SOR), yet his counterpoint that SOR is “complex event processing” is quite unconvincing. I agree with Mark that SOR is […]

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 […]

The Bot Hunter: An Event Processing Challenge (Bot or Not)

Posted on 08/15/08 1 Comment

Recently we penned The Attack of the Spiders from the Clouds where we mentioned how cloud computing infrastructures can be used to stage malicous or accidential network attacks. Today I challenge our CEP/ESP/EP vendors (or SIs) to create the following solution to detect and block rogue bots on Apache web sites.   I will install and […]

Object Refinement in CEP: Tracking Temperatures

Posted on 08/07/08 No Comments

Our colleagues at Apama share an interesting use case, tracking the body temperature of someone walking in their recent press release. This use case is a clear example of a subfunction of complex event processing, folks in the multi-sensor data fusion field (and here at The CEP Blog) refer to as event (object) refinement, sometimes called “track and trace.” The reason we call this […]
