Event-driven architecture: Process events in a responsive manner

Event-driven architectures (EDA) are widely used in distributed systems to process events in real time and enable independent communication between applications and components. As experts in event-driven architecture, we develop scalable IT infrastructures for our customers, thereby ensuring greater flexibility.

Event-driven architecture offers

  • Lean and efficient connections of software components
  • fewer dependencies through decoupling
  • event-driven approach

Work more efficiently with event-driven architecture and the right technologies

Additional technologies are required to ensure that real-time processing and data transfer via EDA run smoothly. As experts with many years of experience in the field of event-driven architecture, we first analyze the requirements of our customers. This allows us to see whether we already have the appropriate technologies in our IT stack. No matter how special the application is: We will find the right solution.

IT training

In our IT training courses we offer, among other things: special in-depth knowledge of Apache Kafka in order to optimally apply event processing via EDA.

Do you need more flexibility? EDA is the solution

Event-driven architecture gives companies an optimal fit for their systems. By having components active only when they need to respond to a specific event, overall system performance also increases - Scale to Zero. Other benefits of EDA also include:

Easier maintenance

Due to the mutual independence, developments and maintenance work on individual applications and components can be carried out more quickly.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does event-driven architecture mean?

Event-driven architecture (EDA) is a software architecture pattern that works with the generation and consumption of events. These are used for communication between different services and components and increase the independence of web applications.

Event-driven Architecture vs. Microservices

The difference between the two approaches lies in the asynchronicity: Microservices solve the problem of monolithic applications. Instead of providing all services via one server, microservices provide a solution through multiple context-specific applications. This makes the service resilient, scalable and agile. Event-driven architecture uses microservices primarily for communication between different services. EDA decouples the producer and the consumer and uses microservices for the production and consumption of events with which data is transmitted. Microservices, on the other hand, represent a modern service-oriented architecture that solves the problems of large monolithic servers in an independent way and lets teams work individually on the context-specific services.

For which environments is event-driven architecture suitable?

An event-driven architecture is a good choice for companies with extensive domain complexity. The terminology remains the same as that used in the company. In this way, processes remain traceable and the core competence teams can take care of specific areas.

What are the challenges of event-driven architecture?

When implementing an event-driven architecture, it is important to keep an eye on the existing company and data protection guidelines and to take them into account during implementation. In addition, our IT developers attach great importance to working with clean data from third-party systems so that processes and architectures run error-free.

How is event-driven architecture integrated into IT systems?

The integration of event-driven architecture is a well-known procedure for experienced software architects like Acosom. Our IT experts are able to get an overview of existing IT environments and develop the required interfaces in a very short time, so that EDA can be properly anchored in a company’s IT infrastructure.
