The science and technology of event processing is the best answer we have to keeping pace with the explosion of critical event data in our enterprises today, and automating management decisions based upon their implications in milliseconds. This presentation will analyze the various dimensions of event processing applications and draw conclusions about future developments in event processing and its potential to integrate disparate IT spaces. This presentation will: trace how event processing has developed from its early beginnings in networks and event driven simulation to its present surprisingly broad application space describe specific examples of how simple event analytics could have prevented recent calamities in enterprise operations and cyber security. survey the present uses of event processing in commerce, pure science, critical infrastructure and military operations outline how event processing can be applied to the challenges created by the growing pervasiveness of IT and increasing demand for analytics and real-time operational intelligence.
