Event-Driven Architecture (EDA) is the latest step in the evolution of microservices and serverless technologies. In an event-driven architecture, systems emit and process events in a loosely-coupled fashion. These environments promote asynchronous communication and adaptability.
In your initial post, briefly describe the concept of an event-driven architecture and explain two benefits that modern organizations can realize if the adopt this architecture.
Respond substantively to at least two other students’ posts. In your peer responses, please compare the benefit(s) that others in the class have suggested for adopting EDA to your own list. Discuss the significance of the benefits mentioned in your classmate’s initial post in the context of microservices in the cloud.
