Bring your own code: How to simplify customizing event correlation software

code2.pngExtensibility and customization are key capabilities that every enterprise software should offer. As is so often the case, there is no one size fits all enterprise software solution, because your business process will always differ from any “standard”—that’s what gives you a competitive edge.
