The rapid and incremental rollout of Coral8âs product innovations is a direct result of the companyâs âcustomer-firstâ policy. Coral8 values customer input and uses it to help shape the direction of its product roadmap, from facilitating business users to analyze and act on real-time information to ensuring its CEP development platform meets the needs of the developer community. Coral8âs CEP Developer Council, which was inaugurated in September 2007, is an important framework by which Coral8 receives feedback from its user base.
âCoral8âs CEP technology is a powerful differentiator in RTIâs real-time middleware offering for high-performance distributed applications,â says David Barnett, VP of Marketing at RTI, a Coral8 customer and OEM partner. âOur joint technological leadership has led to the recent award of a U.S. Air Force contract that provides advanced security protection for distributed systems. We look forward to incorporating the new features of Engine Release 5.2 into our product line.â
Highlights of Coral8 Engine Release 5.2 include:
â¢ Query-enabled Windows â allowing any application to query Coral8 data using industry standard SQL language;
â¢ Event Pattern Matching Enhancements â
o new automated causality reporting enables applications to capture event âaudit trails,â such as forensic trails in fraud detection, complete sets of illicit trader activity, intricate customer behavior patterns, and detailed transaction routings and actions for cost analysis;
