An increasing number of sensors are being deployed in business critical environments, systems, and equipments; and stream vast amount of data. The operational efficiency and effectiveness of business processes relies on domain experts' agility in interpreting data into actionable business information. Yet domain experts rarely have technical skills and knowledge on formal data retrieval tools, such as textual query languages, to specify and extract data of interest. In this paper, we report an

OptiqueVQS is valuable also conceptually as an instance of the end-user programming paradigm in pervasive environments aiming to empower end users to orchestrate data and devices distributed across the physical environment.
