Complex-event Processing

Complex-event processing (CEP) is a kind of computing in which incoming data about events is distilled into more useful, higher level “complex” event data that provides insight into what is happening. CEP is event-driven because the computation is triggered by the receipt of event data. CEP is used for highly demanding, continuous-intelligence applications that enhance situation awareness and support real-time decisions.
