In my views, StreamInsight is one of the most undiscovered enhancements of SQL Server 2008 R2. StreamInsight is a development platform for targeting complex event processing (CEP), and though this is newly introduced in SQL Server 2008 R2, but CEP is not a new market. CEP is a very well know term in the BI parlance and there are already other players in this game. Some of the reasons for limited awareness / popularity of StreamInsight is that it involves a bit of .NET programming ( LINQ ), applications of this feature is limited and this is not something that masses would use frequently unlike other database development features or business intelligence related features. Also in my present knowledge there is no book available that is dedicated to StreamInsight.
In such cases when reference material available is scarce; articles on blogs and community websites, webcasts, technical presentation by experts, and video recordings of demonstrations are a very effective and economic way to fill up this reference material gap. Nick MacKechnie has shared an exhaustive resource collection of StreamInsight related webcasts, videos, presentations, hands on labs and demos. Though you might not be interested immediately to get your hands-on StreamInsight, but this page is definitely worthy of a place in your bookmarks section. Check out this StreamInsight resource collection from here.
