Part IV: Beyond the Basics > From Live Data to Real-time Insight and Action Usi...

Chapter 19. From Live Data to Real-time Insight and Action Using Complex Event Processing and Business Activity Monitoring

What good is data if you cannot extract information from it? And only when you can turn the information into meaningful conclusions and relevant actions will it be truly useful and understood. Our objective with IT in general is to better run our business—more cost effective, with higher quality, and faster throughput. SOA aims to help with that and explicitly add the ability to quickly adapt to changing requirements, which we have dubbed business agility. Data about the business processes and the components that constitute and execute these processes is needed, not only to measure whether we meet our objectives, but also to improve, adjust, and even intervene.

This chapter is about understanding the ongoing events in our organizations in general, and more specifically our IT systems and the SOA applications in particular. And doing something with that understanding—be it redesigning a process at a tactical level, changing systems parameters or business logic on a more day-to-day pace, making snap decisions, or taking immediate action under exceptional circumstances.
