WSO2 Director of Research to Present Session on Implementing Scalable Real-time Analytics at Strata + Hadoop World 2015

Session will examine how to achieve scalable real-time analytics with SQL-like declarative queries using a CEP server in combination with a stream processing system like Apache Storm

Mountain View, CA – February 12, 2015 – Increasingly, organizations rely on real-time analysis of data from the Web, mobile, and Internet of Things to gain more useful insight into developments as they happen. At Strata + Hadoop World 2015, WSO2 Director of Research Srinath Perera, Ph.D. will present a session on how to implement scalable real-time analytics using a complex event processing (CEP) server and an Apache Storm stream processing system.

WSO2 is an Exabyte Sponsor of the Strata + Hadoop World conference, which will run February 17–20, 2015 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA.

Achieving Scalable Real-time Analytics Via CEP and Stream Processing

The session, "Scalable Real-time Analytics with Declarative SQL-like Complex Event Processing Scripts," will be held 2:20–3:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 19, 2015, in room 210 D/H.

Historically, complex event processing has focused on ultra fast response times and execution on one or few nodes while stream processing systems focus on large-scale execution. In this session, Srinath will discuss how developers can combine these capabilities.

Srinath will begin by examining how CEP languages handle real-time analytics by providing SQL-like declarative queries and high-level operators—such as time windows, stream joining, and temporal patterns—that enable users to write complex queries in a few lines. He then will discuss a scalable CEP engine that not only lets users write their queries using a declarative SQL-like CEP query language, but also allows them to execute those queries using a graph of CEP nodes deployed on top of Apache Storm, providing the best of both worlds.

Approaches for Analyzing Data in Real-time

The WSO2 booth (#1025) at Strata + Hadoop World will have experts in data analytics and the cloud to provide three workshop-style demonstrations of how WSO2 is enabling real-time analysis of big data with the high-performance, massively scalable, and 100% open source WSO2 Complex Event Processor (WSO2 CEP).

  • Demonstration #1 examines how creating queries in WSO2 CEP, such as speed limit, proximity and geo-fencing, can be used for a traffic application that sends alerts to users about traffic conditions via Twitter.
  • Demonstration#2 looks at how queries in WSO2 can be used in an application to predict train and bus arrivals, as well as provide updates on a range of traffic conditions.
  • Demonstration #3 reviews a CEP use case for tracking and processing data from a soccer match while achieving throughput in excess of 100,000 events per second through the use of WSO2 CEP and MapReduce-based technologies.

WSO2 CEP is part of the WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform. As with all WSO2 Carbon products, WSO2 CEP is built on the same fully componentized, OSGI-compliant code base, and it is fully multi-tenant and cloud-ready. This means IT professionals can write an application once and deploy it on the same middleware on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment.
