SAS CEO says CEP, open source and cloud have "limited" appeal

Thursday, October 28, 2010

The CEO and co-founder of business intelligence firm SAS Institute, Dr Jim Goodnight, told CBR in an exclusive interview that three seemingly 'hot' areas of BI - complex event processing (CEP), open source BI and BI in the cloud - have limited appeal or use cases in the real world.

Goodnight, who founded SAS in 1976 and has grown it into the largest privately held software firm in the world in the years since, said of CEP: "I would say it's maybe only one or two per cent of applications that would require [CEP]."

It's a view unlikely to be shared by the likes of Progress Software, which has built its entire Responsive Process Management (RPM) vision around the three pillars of its Apama CEP, Actional SOA management and Progress Savvion BPM.
