Event-Driven Business Process Management
Event-Driven Business Process Management (EDBPM) is a combination of actually two different disciplines: Business Process Management (BPM) and Complex Event Processing (CEP). Complex Event Processing (CEP,) is a discipline that deals with event-driven behavior. It is an emerging technology for obtaining relevant situational knowledge from distributed systems in real-time or almost real-time by selection, aggregation, and event abstraction for generating higher level complex events of interest. The common understanding behind BPM is that each company's unique way of doing business is captured in its business processes.
