Recently, there have been two developments related to standards:
- The event processing manifesto work includes a chapter that surveyed related standards and recommended some action items. It has been presented within the EPTS virtual symposium last month by Paul Vincent.
- OMG has renewed its call to express interest in work towards a standard on Event meta-modeling and profile (in essence: event structure).
Standards have a potential to give a big push to the area (this has happened in other areas); the grand challenge presented in the event processing manifesto, the "event fabric" in an internet scale requires the existence of standards as a prerequisite, however there need to be a shorter term business motivation to make it fly.
