Mark Palmer, President and COO stated âStreamBase is delighted to partner with leading scientists from Oracle to further CEP standards. As a member of several industry groups we firmly believe in working towards common standards as the market for CEP matures. StreamBaseâs StreamSQL is based on the world standard database language, SQL.â
âTowards A Streaming SQL Standardâ is the result of the nearly two years of research, and will be presented at the Very Large Data Base Conference on August 28 in Auckland, New Zealand.
Representatives from StreamBase and Oracle will discuss integrating the two approaches into one common standard. One of the central observations in the paper was in its characterization of event-based, versus set-based event processing models. For example, StreamBaseâs execution model is event-based, which is useful for deterministic event-by-event data processing, where the outcome of business logic is determined by the temporal order of the data. Oracleâs time-based model processes data in sets â an approach optimized for processing stored event data. A standards-based approach that embraces both models could result in an event processing approach that addresses both real-time and historical event processing in one language.
"Converging on language standards is good for the entire event processing infrastructure, from end-users to vendors to the large ecosystem of streaming data providers and application partners. Standardization makes programming more portable and allows greater development of third-party applications,â said StreamBase co-founder and Chief Architect, Richard Tibbetts, who is co-presenting the paper at the conference. âOur goal is to focus on the expanding business problems CEP solves, and compete on the merits of the CEP platform, rather than differences in programming language."
