SAP® Event Stream Processor enables you to create and run your own complex event processing applications to derive continuous intelligence from streaming event data in real time. Using raw data from external sources, Event Stream Processor can identify the actionable pieces of information out of the flood of data, and redeposit the relevant information wherever necessary, such as an SAP HANA table.
SAP Event Stream Processor is a form of complex event processing (CEP), a technique for analyzing information about events, in real time, for situational awareness. When vast numbers of event messages are flooding in, it is difficult to see the big picture. With Event Stream Processor, you can analyze events as they stream in and identify emerging threats and opportunities as they happen. The ESP server filters, aggregates, and summarizes data to enable better decision making based on more complete and timely information.
ESP is not an end-user application, but an enabling technology that provides tools that make it easy to develop and deploy both simple and complex projects. It provides a highly scalable runtime environment in which to deploy those projects.
As an engine for an event-driven architecture (EDA), Event Stream Processor can absorb, aggregate, correlate, and analyze events to produce new high-level events that can trigger responses, and high-level information that shows the current state of the business. SAP Event Stream Processor:
