The idea of complex (aggregate) business events, and the related definitions of concepts, state models and rules, provide a powerful representation tool for business modeling that is also very “easily mapped” to the deployment level - as indeed it must be given that TIBCO BusinessEvents is <span>primarily</span> a deployment platform.</p> <p>Of course, as far as I know, no-one use TIBCO BusinessEvents <strong>just</strong> for business event modeling.</p> <p>Yet.</p> <p>But the merger of “business modeling repository” and “executable event processor” is for sure coming closer. The <a title="Wikipedia reference" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_process_management" target="_blank">BPM</a> folks have been promoting this for a while now - defining business level models that in some cases are then annoted further with execution details to become managed workflows, or with IT annotations to become automated processes. But of course the “process flow” is but one view of the business world, with other views (such as events, states, rules, decisions) often being just as useful.</p> <a href="http://www.addtoany.com/share_save?&linkurl=http%3A%2F%2Ftibcoblogs.com%2Fcep%2F2009%2F10%2F16%2Fbusiness-event-modeling-vs-cep%2F&linkname=Business%20Event%20Modeling%20vs%20CEP"><img src="http://tibcoblogs.com/cep/wp-content/plugins/add-to-any/share_save_120_16.png" width="120" height="16" alt="Share/Save/Bookmark" /></a> <p>Related posts:<ol><li><a href="http://tibcoblogs.com/cep/2009/09/22/epts5-1-business-modeling-for-events-from-sunny-trento/" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link: EPTS5-1: Business Modeling for Events, from sunny Trento">EPTS5-1: Business Modeling for Events, from sunny Trento</a></li><li><a href="http://tibcoblogs.com/cep/2008/06/30/advanced-event-driven-process-modeling/" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link: Advanced, Event-Driven, Process Modeling">Advanced, Event-Driven, Process Modeling</a></li><li><a href="http://tibcoblogs.com/cep/2008/01/24/whats-coming-in-cep-modeling-of-events/" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link: What's coming in CEP: Modeling of Events?">What’s coming in CEP: Modeling of Events?</a></li></ol></p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/ComplexEventProcessing/~4/S21eb5l-BLQ" height="1" width="1" />
