Enables Enterprises to Monitor User Activity in Real-Time to Detect Potential Fraud, Compliance Risks and Identify Cross-Selling and Up-Selling Opportunities

ATLANTA, March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- OpenSpan, Inc., a leader in user process improvement software, today announced it has released support for Oracle Complex Event Processing (CEP). Oracle CEP is a complete solution for building applications to filter, correlate and process events in real-time so that downstream applications, service oriented architectures and event-driven architectures are driven by true, real-time intelligence.

This support enables OpenSpan and Oracle CEP to be used together to monitor user activity in real-time to detect and prevent fraud and compliance risks or identify cross-selling and up-selling opportunities.

OpenSpan's software adds new capabilities to the events that can be correlated and responded to by enabling enterprises to monitor relevant user activity in virtually any application and provide a customized event stream to Oracle CEP in real-time, without the requirement to change any of the original applications. Additionally, OpenSpan can be set up quickly to monitor user events in applications to provide the ability to react to the changing business conditions identified by using Oracle CEP.

"Oracle is seeing a dramatic uptake in the number of diverse use cases for our complex events processing technology," said David Shaffer, vice president, product management, Oracle Fusion Middleware. "OpenSpan's ability to add an event stream of user activity to the streams of data processed by Oracle CEP in real-time, will only further increase the opportunities for enterprises to become more responsive and agile."

"Enterprises today are looking for solutions that can help them discover, measure and improve their business processes to gain a competitive advantage," said Eric Musser, CEO, OpenSpan. "The combination of Oracle's ability to enable real-time correlation and management of disparate events from across an enterprise and OpenSpan's ability to monitor and manage user activity creates an entire set of new opportunities for organizations. Now they can identify and respond in real-time to situations that could previously only be detected after the fact."

Support for Oracle CEP is available now and included in all OpenSpan user process management software. More information and a demonstration are available at
