Continuous Intelligence with Complex Event Processing - A Technical White Paper
The SAP Sybase Event Stream Processor (ESP) is a high-performance complex event processing platform designed to make it easy for firms to implement continuous intelligence solutions. SAP Sybase ESP 5.0 is the latest version of our CEP product line, building on the success of its predecessors, the Aleri Streaming Platform and the Coral8 engine (later known as Sybase CEP). It is a comprehensive platform for rapid application development and deployment, with a scalable high-performance CEP engine that applies continuous queries to streams of incoming events in real-time, producing insight from raw data continuously and immediately. This white paper is divided into two main sections: the first is an introduction to Complex Event Processing and how it is used; the second focuses on the SAP Sybase Event Stream Processor and its architecture and features.
