Complex Event Processing (CEP) based applications are becoming increasingly important. These types of applications are characterized by high event data rates, standing queries, and millisecond latency requirements that make it impractical to persist the data in a database before it is processed. You find requirements for these types of applications in quite a few vertical markets: financial trading, manufacturing, health care etc.

In this session we will look at a new technology from Microsoft which covers these requirements; StreamInsight. We will look in-depth how StreamInsight allows us to build these types of applications and also see the main components of StreamInsight.
