Complex Event Processing Defined

Complex event processing (CEP) is technology used for querying data before storing it within a database.

CEP is also known as event, stream or event stream processing. CEP helps to aggregate different information and identifies and analyzes cause-and-effect relationships among events in real time. 

Major application areas for (CEP) include:

  • Business Activity Monitoring – aimed at identifying problems and opportunities in early stages by monitoring business processes and other critical resources.
  • Sensor Networks –  used for monitoring of industrial facilities. These are usually derived from raw numerical measurements.
  • Market Data  – such as stock or commodity prices; they need to be derived from several events.
