About AutoPilot M6

AutoPilot M6 includes advanced, virtualized Complex Event Processing (CEP) capabilities, integrated Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) support, integration with industry standard security management systems including LDAP and Kerberos,. The AutoPilot M6 CEP enables high speed, high volume, time- based rules processing ensuring high availability and peak performance for complex business critical applications in both traditional integrated and service oriented architecture (SOA) environments.

The CEP engine that forms the core of AutoPilot M6 combines real-time rules engine processing with unique time-based trend recognition and predictive problem prevention capabilities. In addition, AutoPilot for M6 can collect, aggregate, filter and correlate metrics and events from infrastructure systems with data from external sources such as RSS and news feeds and even email messages, which enables sophisticated transaction processing applications such as algorithmic trading for banks and brokerage firms.
