When Forrester’s first-ever ‘Wave’ on Streaming Analytics came out recently, it was a real wake-up call to capital markets. As you would expect, the report talked about the advantages of Complex Event Processing (CEP) – now well established in trading and risk environments needing ultra-fast response times. CEP engines, such as Software AG’s Apama, enable firms to find and act on patterns in large volumes of fast-moving data for trading algorithms, smart order routing, real-time risk and more. Forrester calls these “perishable insights” – the real-time opportunities and risks that the markets need to act on in micro-seconds.
The new development – one worthy of an entire Forrester Wave – is that while companies still rely on CEP in fast-paced environments, they demand much more from their real-time Big Data applications. And Streaming Analytics is much more – a tightly integrated ecosystem of CEP, in-memory data management, messaging, data visualization and analytics, with richer capabilities than ever.
See what the 66 percent growth in Streaming Analytics usage over the past two years is all about with the free Forrester Wave on Streaming Analytics.
But it’s not all about the Wave.
Over the past year, we’ve been busy integrating Apama, with Software AG’s own ‘ecosystem’ to bring a single comprehensive offering to capital markets, making it easier for everyone – whether buy-side or sell-side, large or small – to build rich, real-time Big Data solutions.
And our efforts have not gone unnoticed. We are proud to be recognized with multiple and consecutive awards from Waters Technology and acclaim from IDC, The Trade and other capital markets commentators for Apama’s track record of innovation and market leadership over more than a decade.

In the next post, we’ll talk in more detail on what Streaming Analytics means to capital markets with some real-world applications for the new ecosystem of CEP, in-memory data management, low-latency messaging tools and data visualization. Stay tuned.
