What is Complex Event Processing?

What is Complex Event Processing (CEP)?  Read this eight part series from The CEP Blog and find out.

What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 1)

Excerpt:  Complex event processing (CEP) is an emerging network technology that creates actionable, situational knowledge from distributed message-based systems, databases and applications in real time or near real time. CEP can provide an organization with the capability to define, manage and predict events, situations, exceptional conditions, opportunities and threats in complex, heterogeneous networks.

Event Processing Reference Architecture

What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 2)

Excerpt: In a previous blog entry, What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 1), we introduced a few basic event processing concepts and a functional reference architecture for CEP based on the JDL model for multisensor data fusion. One of the most important concept in our reference architecture is the notion of events, which is the topic of this blog entry today.

What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 3)

Excerpt: In an earlier blog entry, What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 1), we introduced a functional reference architecture for event processing. Now, we discuss another important component of distributed CEP architectures, event preprocessing.

What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 4)

Excerpt:  In What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 3), we discussed event preprocessing in event processing applications. Now, in Part 4, we discuss event refinement, also referred to as object refinement or track and trace.

What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 5)

Excerpt: In What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 4), we discussed event refinement, also referred to as object refinement or track and trace. Today, in part 5 of What is Complex Event Processing, we discuss the heart of CEP, situation refinement.

What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 6)

Excerpt: In What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 5), we discussed situation refinement, the functional component of event processing that describes refining multiple event objects in order to estimate and identify business situations and scenarios in real-time. Today, in Part 6 of What is Complex Event Processing, we discuss impact assessment - where detected business situations are compared, correlated, and/or analyzed in “what if” type of scenarios to determine and predict business consequences.

What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 7)

Excerpt:  In What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 6), we discussed impact assessment in event processing applications. Today, we introduce process refinement – the feedback loop, resource management and work flow components of event processing architectures. Business process management (BPM) also is a part of process refinement, depicted in slide 13 of my March 14, 2007 IDC presentation in Lisbon, Portugal

What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 8 )

Excerpt:  In What is Complex Event Processing? (Part 7), we introduced process refinement – the feedback loop, resource management and work flow components of event processing architectures. Today we review another critical area in the functional CEP reference architecture – visualization, which includes both user interfaces and scientific visualizations.
