Tapping into life – An Introduction to Stream Analytics by Jose Rodrigues

clip_image001Welcome to a new stream (no pun intended) on Red Mavericks articles. This time, we’ll be doing an introduction on Oracle’s new Stream Analytics.

We’ll be guiding you through this new, and very cool, product showing what it is and what it can do to leverage this largely untapped resource which is event stream analysis. In fact, streams are everywhere and are becoming more and more open and accessible. If you “wiretap” these, listen to them and understand the behavioral patterns , you can build extremely valuable applications that will help you deliver more to your customers.

It’s a whole new ball game. I hope you find this interesting.

What is Oracle Stream Analytics?

Oracle Stream Analytics (previously Oracle Stream Explorer) is, in fact, an application builder platform, focused on applications that process events coming from the most various systems, internal or external to the organization, thus enabling Business Insight information and deriving relevant data from these events.

It works using an Event Processing Engine to perform Fast Data Analysis over a large number of events that typically appear in a given timeframe.

It also provides a run-time platform that will allow you to run and manage the applications you built.

It’s not a new Oracle Event Processor. It uses OEP as the underlying Event Processing Engine (you can also use Apache Spark as a processing engine, if you prefer. More on this in other articles)

The real power in Oracle Stream Analytics is, curiously, in its UI. As an application builder, it went to great lengths to keep the UI really easy to use. The result is, in my view, very well achieved, with enough simplicity to allow that Business Users, provided they have a bit of technical knowledge, can actually build  applications on their own or with little help from the IT.

Stream Analytics (OSA): the new Oracle Stream Explorer by Guido Schmutz

clip_image002

A few days ago, Oracle released the new version of Oracle Stream Explorer and renamed it to Oracle Stream Analytics (OSA). This new version is an impressive release with over 15 new major features! It really deserves the name change.

Enhanced Patterns Library

The existing patterns have been enhanced substantially  now including Spatial, Statistical, General industry and Anomaly detection through streaming machine learning.

New Geo-spatial pattern

This pattern can be used to analyze streams containing geo-location data and determine how events relate to pre-defined geo-fences in your maps.

Integrated Expression Builder

The Expression Builder allows to add calculated/derived fields on the Live Output Stream of an exploration, an important step towards the “streaming Excel sheet” idea of Oracle Stream Analytics.

It provides the ability to apply and insert mathematical and statistical calculations into the active live output stream. Once a new expression has been defined and validated, a column will be added next to the column of relevance. This new column can then be used in subsequent filters and explorations.

Stream Analytics platform

clip_image002

 

Stream Analytics platform provides a compelling combination of an easy-to-use visual façade to rapidly create and dynamically change Real Time Streaming Analytics (Fast Data) applications, together with a comprehensive run-time platform to manage and execute these solutions. Completely abstracting the entire development and deployment processes, it simplifies the rapid creation of event driven applications for any type of real time business solution, enabling the Enterprise to really immerse itself in next generation real time applications, with times to market of minutes, rather than days or weeks.
Oracle Stream Analytics embraces an industry focus approach with features to leverage preexisting patterns of well known event processing implementations, the definition of Streams that represent the connection to the most popular protocols and methodologies, References which allow immediate joining of streaming data to relational databases and Explorations that provide a stunning visual representation of real time disparate event data flows providing customers with insightful data interrogation in real-time so that downstream applications, service oriented architectures and event-driven architectures are driven by true, real-time intelligence.
Oracle Stream Analytics provides organizations with a complete “top-down” solution for designing, defining, developing and implementing Event Stream Processing applications that not only meet business requirements but perform to the highest levels of the enterprise expectation. Built on the latest industry-standards including ANSI SQL, Java, Spring DM and OSGi, the Oracle Stream Analytics Event Processing runtime component provides an open architecture for sourcing, processing, and publishing complex events throughout the enterprise.  Now together with this ease-of-use web tooling and a visual development environment, as well as standard Java-based tooling, this ensures that your IT and line of business teams can be developing event-driven applications without the hurdle of specialized training or unique skill-set investment.
