Event Processing and RFID (RFID Journal)
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) provides real-time data pinpointing the
exact location of goods and assets for use in analysis or management applications.
Or to put it another way: RFID fits the Event Processing model like a glove.
RFID Journal has recognized this and points out additional benefits like lower
TCO, faster development time, increased functionality and more.
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) technology is mostly used for
factories and the like, where it's a system comprising of a multitude of sensors
that continuously report back to a central point. This automated supply of status
updates allow a CEP system monitor and manage a geographically dispersed process.

for their future offerings. Is the SOA-CEP marriage the big trend of 2008? Read
ZDNet blogger Joe McKendrick's arguments here and judge for yourself.
Event Processing systems tend to be real-time systems, prioritizing speed regardless
of system load. Learn more about the basics of real-time computing here.
Programming: Introduction, Tutorial, History (Stephen Ferg)
