Event-Driven Architecture


An Event-Driven Architecture is more than just a set of microservices. Event Streams should represent the central nervous system, providing the bulk of communication between all components in the platform. Unfortunately, many projects stall long before they reach this point. Teams start by building an initial set of microservices but expanding beyond that to the rest of the system can be a real challenge. Transitioning from Event-Driven Microservices to an Event-Driven Architecture requires treating events like a product. However, the biggest challenge will be convincing the people around you that this is the right solution.
