Did you know that we produce trillions and quintillions of data every day? How do you think that’s processed and how about its tracking? When the apps are developed at a faster pace, it is essential to have a flexible application architecture that can adapt to changes quickly and provide insights instantly.
Earlier, we had point-to-point integration which consumed a lot of time and was tightly coupled which led to the slow synthesis of data and scalability.
Let us know what Event-Driven architecture is all about and how it helps organizations!
It is a software architecture or a model for application designing that helps you to capture, communicate and process the events through an Event-Driven approach. Unlike the traditional request-driven model, which was long and time-consuming, EDA is instant and provides you solutions with deeper insights.
Since Event-Driven is an approach basically and not a language, it can be created in any programming language for designing apps. The Event-Driven architecture has minimal coupling and makes up for a modern and distributed application architecture.
When there is a change in the hardware or the software system, an event occurs. An event can be generated from internal or external inputs. For instance, if it’s from a user it could be from a click of the mouse and if the event is from an external source, it could be a sensor output or anything beyond. The event can be responded to in real-time or as soon as it is received.
To enable a relevant and correct response for the event, an Event-Driven system follows three essential components. To understand it better let’s know them with an example each. Imagine you are ordering an item online using an e-commerce site. Here’s how the entire process works.
As we just read above, Event-Driven architecture is made up of Event Producers, Event Routers and Event Consumers. The Event Producer identifies and senses an event and gets transmitted to an event processing platform through an Event Router. The corresponding response is sent further to the consumers.
Various data streaming platforms can help in publishing, subscribing, storing and processing an event in real-time. While selecting a platform it is important to check for high throughput and scalability.
AVASOFT with their agile integration process and a team of Salesforce experts can help you improve the speed of your deliverables with an Event-Driven Architecture EDA approach. Check out our next blog for knowing when to use Event-Driven architecture and do check the use-case scenarios too!
