‘Complex event processing’ techniques from financial services added to energy trading package.

Chicago-based Aleri has teamed with OILspace of Houston to add Aleri’s complex event processing technology to its energy supply chain, risk, and trade management applications. OILspace’s flagship products are the OILwatch energy portal Aspect TradeFlo, an online trading solution. Complex event processing (CEP) involves real-time analysis and decision support leveraging real-time and historical data.
