Nice article on What is Big Data. Raises the question of Streaming Processing vs Complex Event Processing, and predicts that the term CEP will pass away in favor of Streaming Processing. While I might use Stream Processing instead of Streaming, or better yet, Real Time Analytic Processing (RTAP) it shows that the CEP vendors haven't captured the mindshare in the industry. Streams is at the forefront of a new computing paradigm. With over double the number of new customers in 2011 as in 2010, Streams had great growth last year, and is posed for even greater growth in 2012, with many new use cases, references and assets available to accelerate growth.
