While this complexity is impressive, it tends to demonstrate why CEP is, today, more hype than reality.
I can hear the team at Techrotech in my mind, “Yea! Greg purchased Coral8 for our CEP solutions yesterday! Holy Cow!! Let’s go out and learn 60 topics in depth so we can become experts in using and deploying Coral8!”
So, let’s say you are intelligent and can master a subject in a single weeks time (if you have nothing else to do), so you can become a Coral8 expert in only one year if you don’t have a day job!!
I don’t know about you, but the way Mark describes their product, Coral8 sounds more like a lab tool for the engineering department of Caltech or Stanford than a tool for everyday business users. Mark concludes his post;
Not too scary, is it? – Mark Tsimelzon, President & CTO, Coral8
Hmmmm. I think I’ll ask the software team at Techrotech to write some event processing applications in C since we have a strong team of C programmers coming off another project next week…. then again, I heard some Java programmers will be free in two weeks ….
