Across the Financial Services Industry, business processing environments are becoming more complex, while, at the same time the need for more automated processing functions has become critical from a competitive perspective. Complex Event Processing (CEP) is an emerging technology for building and managing information systems. The goal of CEP is to enable event information flowing through business processes to be discovered, and understood in terms of the overall impact to the business.

Reducing cost and risk are the key factors ultimately driving the need for change in the management and monitoring of business processes. And, are quickly becoming prerequisites for companies seeking to optimize business processes, reduce operational costs, and gain real-time visibility.

In this session, David Luckham (inventor of CEP), IBM and Bristol Technology will discuss not only the concepts behind CEP, but also will dive into real customer examples of how IBM’s CEP technology is being used in many Financial Services organizations, today. And, how using technology such as TransactionVision®, can address the key issues of reducing risks and costs associated with monitoring business processes.
