  • What you need to know now about CEP and BAM

    Complex event processing and business activity monitoring are increasingly attractive tools for helping businesses manage and respond to business "events" -- high-speed, high-volume information shifts -- better than ever before. This handbook introdu... 

  • Using complex event processing for more intelligent business operations

    Read this e-book for an introduction to complex event processing (CEP). Inside, learn about the role of CEP in intelligent operations, and you'll also get access to a special three-part report on capturing, analyzing and taking action on event data.

About SOA event-driven architecture (EDA) and complex event processing (CEP)

Complex Event Processing (CEP) is the act of processing numerous events, or changes in the configuration of information in a program or computer, that happen throughout an organization, then discovering and analyzing the most important events within the event cloud. In CEP, events trigger actions within the system. This form of implementation is often built using an SOA Event-Driven Architecture (EDA), which is a type of software architecture that helps with the production and detection of events, as well as the reaction to them.
