Three Ways to Derive Information From Event Streams

Per Gartner, “Event stream processing is becoming a major part of business analytics.”

Every large company has hundreds of event streams continuously flowing through its networks, but most companies capture only a fraction of their information value because they lack systematic architecture guidelines.

We believe this report by Gartner looks to help Data and Analytics leaders understand the need to employ three specific application styles to derive business intelligence from event streams.


“The information in event streams can be of enormous value to many kinds of business decisions related to customer support, fraud detection, supply chain management, resource scheduling, machine maintenance, marketing and pricing.”

This Gartner report covers how to:

  • Use continuous intelligence to support situation awareness and real-time, sense-and-respond business processes
  • Use on-demand intelligence with a combination of real-time event data and historical data for time-sensitive, interactive operational decisions
  • Use on-demand intelligence with historical data to support reports and interactive queries, and to build analytical models
