Event-driven architecture (EDA) provides an ideal framework and model for designing software applications. At its core is the occurrence of an event, or a change in the state of a software/hardware component. These events may be triggered by internal or external factors, such as user activity in your system, or by an action in a linked network. When an event occurs, it can set off a reaction that follows your specified rules and workflow to achieve a range of objectives.
Gartner estimates event-sourced, real-time situational awareness will be a vital factor in 80% of digital business solutions by 2020, and that over 75% of new business ecosystems will need support for event processing.
The reason is clear: companies are struggling with the current state of affairs—and if you’re one of them, Event-Driven Architecture (EDA) can address a lot of the issues you face.
It’s common to feel like you’re juggling complex IT challenges in your organization. Traditional architectures simply can’t handle performance in real time, or at scale. Though big data is revolutionizing the way we do everything, it’s a double-edged sword. The more data companies generate, the harder it is to manage.
Large quantities of data slow down less agile systems that can’t handle the workloads or use cases. Time series databases aren’t well-suited for relational modeling use cases, for example. A document database might have a superb structure, but doesn’t perform as well when it comes to parsing analytics.
Even applications that look great on the surface often have wobbly infrastructure performance capabilities that hamper your progress. Today’s companies rely on flexible, globally-integrated, cloud-native applications running 24/7 with 99.999% uptimes.
Many challenges can be solved by moving to EDA systems. Benefits of an event-driven approach include:
The goal of processing in an event-driven environment is to enable your system to identify critical events based on patterns, opportunities, and threats, and to respond to them either before they occur or immediately afterward.
