Similarly a transaction in a company for example a bank where a new loan application or money withdrawal transaction goes thorough many data systems before getting fulfilled. These transactions are stored and used by many departments.
To explore or perform business actions based on the paths these transactions take, unique ids are assigned and event trails are explored.

Events are processed in real time, enriched, business rules are applied and stored in SOLR or Elastic Search stores for exploration.
Transactions, activities can be easily converted to event centric form. Event solution provides a customizable model, which gets filled by business applications or systems and posted to real time bus (Kafka) for further processing.
Event tracking solution provides classes and REST API framework, which could be easily embedded to business applications to collect event data. Framework allows applications to post business activities/transactions as events to real time bus.
