Pretty much every sector of commerce is event-driven these days. Time and information are the two driving sources of competitive advantage. As a result managers of event-driven enterprises are becoming increasingly stressed as “time to manufacture,” “time to supply,” “time to do anything” shrinks, while simultaneously the information tsunami rolls over them.
BAM takes on the task of providing a platform to help make management sense of the information in an enterprise’s event cloud. In doing so – in raising the visibility of events (both single and complex) in a business context – BAM ups the ante on the event processing and complex event management infrastructure, making it significantly more critical for companies to invest in the information driven through their CEP layer.
In this seminar, we will discuss BAM as a potential killer app for the event processing arena.
