要点

  1. イベント・ストリーム・プロセッシングは、無線および有線のトランスミッションを活用し、 複数のソースから最大で毎秒 100 万件のストリーミング・イベント/トランザクションを処 理します。送受信はリアルタイムに行われ、レイテンシ(遅延)はマイクロ秒レベルの低さ です。ほぼすべての業界と市場において、イベント・ストリーム・プロセッシングの活用は 拡大し続けており、関心も高まっています。イベント・ストリーム・プロセッシングは、継 続的なリアルタイムのストリーミング・アナリティクスに活用されています。
  2. イベント・ストリーム・プロセッシングは、意思決定能力の強化を目的としたデータ活用を 促進します。構造化データと非構造化データをどちらも活用し、「データが移動中」(スト リーミング/流れている間)に意思決定を行えるようにします。イベント・ストリーム・プ ロセッシングをコネクテッド・カー・テクノロジーに適用することで、イベントや異常、課 題、懸念すべき状況をリアルタイムに検知し、ほぼリアルタイムに対応できるようになりま す。
  3. コネクテッド・カーのイニシアチブを成功させるためには、政府機関、サプライヤ、サード パーティ・サービス・ベンダー、アフターマーケット・デバイス、テクノロジー企業、自動 車メーカー、そしてそのバリューチェーンを含むビジネス環境全体の連携と協調が必要です。 このシステムは拡張可能で、かつ複数のプラットフォームに対応しなければなりません。
