Celequest 2.0 is an integrated software suite for building and
deploying business activity monitoring (BAM) solutions across the
enterprise. The solution consists of a server, modeler, dashboard and a
Celequest 2.0 offers real-time visibility, action and results to
business users across the enterprise. The software focuses on current
activities and monitors key business events and relates those events to
historical or contextual information from data warehouses or
operational systems in real time, alerting users to exception
conditions as they occur. Celequest software can alert users of
critical business events and real-time metrics so that action can be
taken as the events occur, instead of after the fact. Some of the business
events it monitors are:
- An increase in call volume in a call center
- Changes in investment positions
- Inventory levels falling below a certain threshold
- A drop in demand forecast
- An increase in product returns
"While traditional business intelligence software enables companies to
analyze what has happened historically in a business, these
technologies are inherently incapable of providing real-time visibility
and insight into what is currently happening," said Diaz Nesamoney,
founder and CEO of Celequest. "Celequest recognized that existing
technologies cannot be retrofitted to solve this problem; therefore a
fundamentally new architectural approach to business intelligence was
needed to enable the real-time enterprise. We built Celequest 2.0 from
the ground up to address the unique challenges of BAM."
The components of Celequest 2.0 include:
- Celequest 2.0 Activity Server: Delivers patent-pending "streaming"
database technology that materializes and caches real-time temporal
views of events and integrates historical context data. The Activity
Server utilizes an Adaptive Modeling Engine that executes business
rules, manages exception conditions, and enables dynamic event
modeling, including time-series analysis.
- Scenario Modeler: Enables business users to model complex
analytical scenarios dynamically and evaluate them in real time with a
Microsoft Excel-like interface.
- Activity Dashboard: Provides business users with visibility into
real-time metrics and alerts and allows users to acknowledge and
- Application Workbench: Creates baseline business views and data
models that provide a real-time representation of business activity;
this information is then correlated with contextual information to
provide a meaningful picture of the activity.
Brocade Communications Systems Inc. is using Celequest as a prototype
for its engineering team who needs to monitor quality and run modeling
tests. "The software is designed to allow business users to set up
rules to determine when certain metrics have crossed thresholds, thus
alerting quality teams to problems before they seriously impact
production," said Jim Cates, Chief Information Officer of Brocade
Communications Systems Inc. "The efficiencies enabled by these
capabilities could provide a sizeable return on investment for
Celequest is certified to run on the SolarisTM Operating System
(Solaris OS), Linux, Microsoft Windows 2000, HP-UX and AIX and supports
WebLogic, WebSphere and JBoss application servers.
