A number of Enterprise and Government use cases involve overwhelming numbers of events that have to be analyzed in real time. Some examples: [1] Telecom customer care has gotten to the point where it needs proactive customer management so that it can direct users and avoid expensive contacts call center. [2] Banks and credit card companies need to make split second decisions with regard to allowing debit or credit card payments, based on the history of a customer and current real-time events and contexts. [3] The Intelligence Community processes millions and millions of incoming messages and observations on a daily basis and needs to predict malicious events and aberrant human behavior far enough in advance so that appropriate action can be taken.
