Introducing streamed information processing into mainstream IT

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0337469/Introducing-streamed-information-processing-into-mainstream-IT.html

Introduction

The aim of processing streamed information is to enable the organization to respond by tuning its processes, policies, and rules to suit the changed environment, either overall or on a case-by-case basis. The technology required is notably different from current mainstream IT, yet it has to be able to influence the way in which regular business transactions are conducted.

Features and benefits

Understand the potential of streamed information and the types of business scenarios that could benefit from its exploitation.

Understand the technology requirements for realtime streamed processing, and how this differs from the current mainstream IT architecture.

Understand why complex event processing (CEP) is just the one of the requirements in a holistic view of streamed information processing.

Understand how vendors are approaching the evolving market, and what it will mean for the vendor ecosystem.

Highlights

The exploitation of streamed data is already mainstream in some financial services sectors and is now becoming cost-effective in other industries. The technology required differs from traditional transaction-oriented IT and will pose skills and integration challenges, but increasingly the competitive landscape makes evaluation highly recommended.

Your key questions answered

What types of business scenario could benefit from the availability of streamed information processing?

How do the technology requirements of streamed processing differ from traditional transaction-oriented IT?

How can streamed processing technology be integrated into established transaction-based IT environments?

Key messages

MANY INDUSTRY SECTORS CAN BENEFIT FROM PROCESSING STREAMED INFORMATION

Complex event processing has spawned a more general approach to streamed information

Location-aware devices provide rich information sources

Security-based technologies will have spin-offs for other industries

THE TRADITIONAL PARADIGM IS NOT SUITABLE

IT systems can no longer exhibit black-box behavior

Abstraction of the data stream from the processing logic will be a requirement

STREAMED INFORMATION PROCESSING HAS TO BE INTEGRATED WITH TRADITIONAL IT SYSTEMS

Analyzing streamed data is only part of the picture

Service-level abstraction will enable integration while limiting dependence

Vendors have taken different priorities for addressing the requirements of streamed processing
