    Hi Tim,

    We would like to invite you to be a guest on our interview series on the subject of Complex Event Processing. See http://www.complexeventspodcast.com.

    The series is a completely objective analysis on the subject of CEP and engages experts on the topic.

    In fact, we just recently completed an interview with David Luckham.

    Specific topics and questions for the interview can be provided in advance. We welcome you to provide questions on which you would like to be engaged.

    I have been reading your blog over the last few months and very much like your honest and straightforward comments, today’s posting a wonderful case-in-point (“…I disagree…CEP is neither a process nor a service…”)

    The interview process typically takes no more than an hour in total. We record the session over the phone. After initially editing, you receive the interview on a private link to review and request any edits you like. We post the interview only after you have listened and given your approval.

    About Voices in Business… We produce topic specific interview series featuring thought leaders in the field sharing their insights and opinions. Examples of some of our other series are: http://www.algotradingpodcast.com, http://www.paymentspodcast.com, http://www.mifidpodcast.com, and http://www.virtualworldsbusinesscast.com.

    Are you available sometime in the next few weeks to do an interview? I certainly hope so.

    Kind regards,

    Vicki Zesses

  2. Thank you for your terrific and informative blog. Ventana Research currently has a primary research program, “Innovating with Operational Intelligence and Complex Event Processing,” open for participation here:

    (or via http://www.ventanaresearch.com)

    The questions in the research survey focus on CEP, use of real-time information and analytics about events, choices made regarding operational BI vs BAM and event-based technology and integration with SOA and BPM. We would be very interested in including the experiences of TheCEPBlog community in our data and analysis.

    We will report on this research in September. Participants in the research will get a report about the results. I’d also be happy to share insights from the research with TheCEPBlog community in other ways.

    Thanks very much for the opportunity to invite this community to participate!
