Event Processing in Big Data: Creating Fast Data

January 15, 2013

Big Data has been getting a lot of attention recently. Not only is this a very interesting subject by itself, but I am finding it ever so more important to me as there is a direct relationship between Big Data and Event Processing (CEP). So much so, that I have written an article describing how event processing can be used to speed up, or rather, provide a real-time answer to Big Data queries. In other words, how one can combine event processing technology, which is inherently real-time, with Big Data technology, which is generally batch-oriented, to come with a new Fast Data platform, that is not only deep, but also fast.

The article is part of the first issue of the new technical magazine Real-Time Business Insights: Event Processing in Action.

Let me also take the opportunity to say that I gladly accepted a position as one of the editors for the magazine, alongside several other prestigious experts in the industry and academia. Please, feel free to download it, and send me feedback, and new ideas.

We are looking for new articles to be promoted in the following issues!
