The technical approaches of CEP are part of the NextBI “speed layer”. CEP handles a high amount of simultane occuring events. The whole spectrum of occuring events are flatted and a decision will be extracted (in “near” realtime). The extraction of a decision is equal to that what the real time approaches of NextBI intend. Take multiple channels of information, combine it with specific context (like current geographical location, weather and so on) and find a best matching solution. Like the intelligent search of web search engines. Take the information of all in the internet web sites (typically batch jobs) and bring it together with real time information.
