In the scope of SocEDA, services communicate using events. It is one particular aspect of monitoring. Focusing on business event monitoring, requires focusing first on the concept of monitoring.
Monitoring is the action of supervising activities in progress to ensure they are on-course and on-schedule in meeting the objectives and performance targets.
The monitoring in SocEDA is based on supervising business events. It does not include enforcement (i.e. taking decisions while following-up the monitoring of business events). It graphically reports business events notifications and evolutions to end-users and has no influence over the overall operation of the platform. At this point, we consider the business event monitoring.
Business Events Monitoring is a means of filtering the tsunami of information about business events that pours through the company every day by recognizing those data points that are most important to particular persons or workgroups.
(complex) Business Events are deduced from one or several technical event(s) through rules-based complex event processing, thus providing a higher level of abstraction.
