1134491018.jpgSAS Event Stream Processing is at the heart of the SAS IoT software suite. SAS ESP is a streaming analytics platform in which users can design applications to process, cleanse, prepare, and apply advanced analytics to data as it is created and before it ever lands in storage.


In the world of IoT, one of the challenges is to bring together data from various sources to create a bigger picture that will give the user a more complete understanding of the assets being monitored. Much of the data in an IoT application is in the form of sensor data, which for a single sensor, is of limited utility. It is therefore the goal of the IoT practitioner to enrich the data stream as much as possible by bringing different sources of data together.


A great way to enrich a data stream is to make use of web based resources. For example, if a shipment of food is being tracked, live weather data can be of great use to determine if the food is at risk of spoiling. Another example could be an application involving financial transactions which would benefit from being joined with live currency exchange data. The possibilities are endless given how many APIs are out there.


In this video tutorial, I show you how to use the URL Connector for a fun application. We will use the API from the LIGO Collaboration, which is an observatory that detects the gravitational waves from collisions of black holes and other extremely powerful gravitational events that happen all throughout the visible universe. This API allows the user to get the data from the latest LIGO events as they happen.


So, kick back and let the stars get in your eyes as I walk you through this powerful and cool feature of SAS Event Stream Processing.

Whether you're already using SAS Event Stream Processing or thinking about it, this is where you can connect with your peers, ask questions and find resources.
