  • Apply a machine-learning model to the batch analytics pipeline, and then use the resulting predictive analytics with the complex event processor (CEP) pipeline.
  • Conduct analytics at the edge to facilitate the detection of important trends or aberrations and significantly reduce network traffic to improve performance.
  • Ensure high performance and availability in IoT applications where reliably rapid response is critical.
  • Realize development and deployment flexibility on-premise and in the cloud.
