Title:

(Semantic) Complex Event Processing – Reference Architectures and Design Patterns

Abstract:

Detection, prediction and mastery of complex situations are crucial to the competitiveness of networked businesses and the efficiency of dynamic distributed enterprise infrastructures in manifold domains such as Finance/Banking, Logistics, Automotive, Telco, Life Sciences. Complex Event Processing (CEP) is an enabling technology to extract actionable, situated knowledge from large amounts of event data in near real-time. This real-time behaviour is considered as one of the main prerequisites for many highly relevant technology trends such as predictive business, real-time adaptive enterprise or autonomic systems. CEP is now one of the fastest growing segments in (distributed) enterprise middleware software, with products provided by major software vendors and many start-up companies around the world.

The prospect of combining event processing and semantic technologies in the area of Semantic Complex Event Processing (SCEP) is this: Event processing engines will have (1) a description of what is happening in terms of events and (process) states / situations and (2) a plan for the re/actions and processes they can invoke (often leading to follow-up events). Novel rule-based Event Processing Languages (EPLs) for the Web such as Reaction RuleML employ reaction rules, which have evolved from existing rule-based technologies such as production rules and Event-Condition-Action (ECA) rules. They can use SCEP-generated knowledge to derive further decisions and trigger automated reactions. Moreover, EPLs can exploit the declarative expressiveness of semantic rules as a means to specify knowledge in a way that is understandable by 'the business' and is executable by CEP rule engines.

In this talk I will present the EPTS Reference Architecture for Event Processing and its components. I will cover some of the Reference Architecture subfunctions as design patterns against current CEP implementation languages from major vendors such as IBM, Oracle, TIBCO and open source such as Prova. I will also demonstrate their extension towards more complex semantic CEP patterns.

Corporate Semantic Web @ University of Waikato New Zealand

2012-02-09 00:29

Corporate Semantic Web collaborates with University of Waikato in a project on "User Guided Semantic Enrichment". The project is partially funded by the BMBF Unternehmen Region Innoprofile, BMBF Internationales Büro and the Royal Society of New Zealand.

In this project we study the semantic annotation and semantic content enrichment processes in order to improve usability and understandability of semantic annotation tools and methods. This project is a combination of two key approaches - Semantic Web research and user-centered information system design. It uses validated and accepted methodologies from Human Computer Interaction and information system design to evaluate the usability of semantic annotation and editing tools in selected use cases (e.g. tourist information systems).

We presented about Corporate Semantic Web at the Semantic Tech and Business Conference (SemTechBiz 2012), 6-7 February, 2012, Berlin.

Corporate Semantic Web - The Semantic Web Meets the Enterprise
Prof. Dr. Adrian Paschke, Freie Universität Berlin

Nowadays, companies seek more capable approaches for gaining, managing, and utilizing knowledge as well as for automating dynamic services and agile business processes. The Semantic Web offers promising solutions here. The Corporate Semantic Web idea aims at bringing semantic technologies to enterprises. Corporate Semantic Web (CSW) deals with the application of Semantic Web technologies (in particular rules and ontologies) within enterprise settings. It address the technological aspects of engineering and managing semantic enabled IT infrastructure to support (collaborative) workflows, communication, knowledge management, and (business) process management in enterprises. But, it also addresses the pragmatic aspect of actually using Semantic Web technologies in enterprises. This includes learning and training aspects as well as economical considerations - i.e. corporate in the sense of entrepreneurial activities. Incentives need to be provided to encourage in-house adoption and integration of these new Corporate Semantic Web technologies into the existing enterprise information systems, services and business processes. Decision makers on the operational, tactical, and strategic IT management level need to understand the impact of this new technological approach, its adoption costs, and its return on investment.

Want to understand how the semantic web applies to the enterprise arena?
