The EPCenter eliminates the need for custom programming, can be driven by any web accessible data and allows organizations to set up sense and respond applications in hours or days rather than months.

"In addition to traditional dashboard type interface, we've added a twitter publishing capability so you can continue to get important updates when you can't have eye's on a dashboard." said David Hicks, CEO for DataComplex. "With the EPCenter you can also add sense and respond to your micro-blog to augment a social marketing program. For instance, automatically letting your customers know if a service is out, or forwarding a request for service upgrade to a customer service representative."

Using a graphical interface, business data can quickly be configured for use as a data stream and processed using EsperTech's event processing language. Queries can be set up to create simple alerts or sophisticated patterns can be employed to spot opportunities. When a query matches, the result can be delivered via email alerts, a twitter messaging system, graphical widgets incorporated into a companies web site, or even viewed on google maps or google earth.

The epcenter is a valuable information tool for companies that need to monitor data that shapes how they price products, manage inventories, and monitor business processes. Companies can use the epcenter platform to build their own event driven solutions or they can us DataComplex's support services to create custom solutions. "One of the solutions we've targeted is price monitoring for property management companies" says marketing director Michele Nestel. "These companies have varied inventory by features, type, location, and size. Pricing fluctuates according to market conditions, scarcity, and season, so the epcenter is the perfect tool for monitoring competitive pricing, availability, and other business metrics allowing a manager to set optimum pricing on a daily, weekly or monthly basis."
