What is Microsoft StreamInsight and its usefulness

Its’ a compliments with SQL Server, is a powerful platform that you can develop and deploy complex event processing(CEP) applications. It’s high-throughput stream processing architecture and the Microsoft .NET framework-based development platform enable you to quickly implement robust and highly efficient event processing applications.

Analyze and correlate data incrementally while the data is in-flight — that is, without first storing it–yielding very low latency. Aggregate seemingly unrelated events from multiple sources and perform highly complex analyses over time.

StreamBase, Oracle CEP, ESPER(Open source), Tibco business events and few others

Some practical scenrions you can think of for this framework,
1) Real time risk monitoring- Continously monitor market conditions or manage risk across traders/desk or forward to further wf
2) Per-Trade compliance – Monitor trades as they are about to happen, apply compliance rules or forward to wf
3) Real time web analytics -continous analysis fo user behavior in the website, aggregate
4) Smart power grids- gather supplier/consumer behavior info, analyze demand vs supply and match on the fly
5) Algorithmic trading – react to patterns in financial market data, automated trading rules..

Final note: A practical example is, let say there is a cycle race happening and the top 10 bikers name and position keep changing every minute, on top of this you man require to prepare report on this standing data not stored in db or query over live data…
