Optimizing Responsiveness through Complex Event Processing
Register Now July 21, 2009
Cambridge, Massachusetts
Today's applications and computing environments absorb huge volumes of mission-critical data. Information continuously flows from widely disparate business systems -- and can include far ranging devices such as RFID, GIS/GPS and telematics. Current solutions provide “past tense” results from this data which limits the ability to act in real-time. By capturing and correlating events from multiple sources as they occur, visibility and response becomes real-time and immediate actions can be taken – before it’s too late. When important events arise, do you have the infrastructure in place to respond? Can you precisely deliver the kinds of service your customers expect?

Already proven in computing-intensive industries, Complex Event Processing (CEP) has emerged as a way for businesses of all kinds to monitor fast moving data streams, rapidly seek out patterns of significance, and quickly respond with results. In fact, businesses that create "event-driven" solutions gain a competitive advantage by responding to changes, opportunities and threats as they happen.

  • How are businesses successfully implementing Complex Event Processing?
  • What trends in varied industries like telecommunications, transportation, logistics, energy, and capital markets indicate how all industries can benefit?
  • Where have these businesses found operational efficiencies acting in real-time?
  • What lessons have they learned that can help you?

10:30–11:00 a.m. Visionary Presentation
David Olson, Director, Progress Apama
  Originally mission–critical in capital markets, the concept of complex event processing (CEP) has emerged as a game–changer for other industries. For example, in manufacturing industries, CEP can help measure and correct sources of waste that are draining profits, such as potential pauses on the assembly line due to missing parts or an assembly task that requires more time than was anticipated when the process was originally designed. And that's just one of many industry–specific examples. In this session, hear how CEP is making a key operational difference in numerous environments.
