Informatica Announces Updated Complex Event Processing Release

Advancing its position in the complex event processing (CEP) category, Informatica Corporation, a provider of enterprise data integration software, yesterday announced the availability of Informatica RulePoint 5.1. With the new release, RulePoint, which enables enterprises to rapidly detect, immediately analyze and intelligently respond to data-driven events, adds enhancements such as rapid user onboarding, support for broader customer environments, lower latency processing through change data capture, higher performance event enrichment, extended geospatial capabilities, and the ability to attach optional metadata.

"We continue to extend the functionality and value of Informatica RulePoint in parallel with integrating its differentiated CEP capabilities with the industry-leading Informatica Platform," states Mike Appelbaum, vice president and general manager, Complex Event Processing, Informatica. "The synergy between CEP and enterprise data integration plays out across numerous use cases and is a major factor in enabling enterprises to become truly data-driven. By providing the greatest business visibility around events across the extended enterprise, Informatica looks to establish a leadership position in this market."

The new release adds support for IBM DB2, Oracle 11g R1, Firefox 3.6 and Java 1.6; and in support of rapid user onboarding, allows non-technical users to easily specify simple alerts and complex rules across multiple, diverse data sources such as real-time message queues, databases, click streams, telemetry feeds and control systems.

Informatica RulePoint 5.1 also introduces the ability to capture only new data and micro-data changes within SQL databases as they happen for more rapid response to events; while SQL Analytic Result Set Caching and Web Services Result Set Caching serve to increase system performance and reduce the load on external databases and web services when event enrichment is triggered.

GeoOutsideArea and Multi-Dimensional Arrays provide additional geospatial functionality for geo-aware event processing, and, in the new release, metadata properties can be configured for each data source and attached to the event, including source of the data, data location, whether the data has been verified or not.
