Predictive Analytics meets event stream processing

RapidMinder screenshotCEP systems have long been toted as providing “real time analytics”, usually through the application of event pattern recognition (using temporal or boolean logic) against event streams… Meanwhile at the other end of the spectrum, predictive analytics tools have been plying their computations against various data / Big Data sources in order to provide analytics in less than “real time”.

Now one of the analytics vendors has come out with a packaged solution for executing analytical models against event streams, applying their analytics tooling to an Apache Storm infrastructure. RapidMiner Streams appears to have beaten SAS and FICO to the punch on this packaging, with SAS especially interesting due to their own, new streaming engine (SAS Event Stream Processing Engine).

Thanks to Roy Schulte for the heads-up on this release.
