Application: System and method of dynamically filtering data (Patent ID: US20230344773A1)

The patent filed by SAP SE describes techniques for dynamically filtering data streams in a cloud computing environment. The method involves obtaining metrics of the environment, determining filtering rules based on these metrics, and configuring a filter adapter to apply the filtering operation to data transmissions between a data source and a data consumer. The metrics can include information about the data consumer, network, and data source, and the filtering rule can involve compressing data, filtering out portions, or blocking transmissions based on priority levels computed from the metrics.

The patent claims detail a computer-implemented method and system for implementing the described techniques, including obtaining metrics, determining filtering rules, and configuring filter adapters. The claims also cover various aspects such as the type of data sources (software application, data lake, IoT component), multiple data sources transmitting to a single consumer, metrics of the network, and different types of data filtering operations. Additionally, the claims address the computation of priority levels, identification of data consumers, and pushing filtering rules to the filter adapter. The patent aims to provide a dynamic and efficient way to filter data streams in a cloud computing environment based on real-time metrics and priorities.
