Complex Event Processing (CEP) has a developed specific meaning in financial services and other industries where
a significant and strategic fraction of the business information arrives as a high-speed stream of data. In this case,
Complex Event Processing is the ability to analyze streams of data, identify significant events, and translate noise into
actionable results. These events are often a combination of multiple data points occurring in a specific sequence and
within a given time window. The process of identifying these events is complex, and the results are valuable.
