- Paradigm shifts can’t happen if there are too many barriers; have the entry barriers for "event processing" already been removed? ;
- Paradigm shifts are more likely to happen when adopters decide they need a whole new avenue of applications; they are less likely to happen as a way of re-engineering existing systems. For example the German population will reach 1:2 old: young ratio by 2020 so this requires a paradigm shift of healthcare models. Can we identify new avenues of relevant applications?
- Paradigm shifts usually happen as a result of some external change, not just because of innate strengths of the technology itself. Can we identify such external changes?
- Standardization is not necessary for a paradigm shift, but good, appropriate standards (de facto or otherwise) certainly help
Another question is to where in essence is the "paradigm shift" - is it the decoupled "event-driven" paradigm ? is it the "complex event processing", i.e. ability to find patterns on multiple events? is it the entire processing framework as the Oracle's Blog claim?
