A New CEP/EDA Book
Past week I have been reading a new book on CEP/EDA:
"Event Processing – Designing IT Systems for Agile Companies" by K. Mani Chandy and Roy Schulte
It approaches both EDA and CEP from the conceptual and business angle. Although I have just read a couple of chapters I can say that it’s a good read for anyone interested in CEP.
There seems to be no or very little technical detail in the book. It’s more about the ideas behind CEP and tries to explain the business case for CEP. The first chapters gives and answer to "why event processing?" and "why now?"
As there are no books at all about the new era CEP this is a welcome addition. Plus it’s written by two people that have a place in the CEP Hall of Fame. Even though Luckham’s Power of Events kicked off the CEP area, a lot have happened since that book. This neo-CEP needs new books as the ideas have matured and now weunderstand better where CEP fits into the big picture.
So get it and read it. It’s easy to read as there is not technical details. For more technical book you’ll need to wait for Opher’s book.
