Event-driven architecture (short: EDA) is a software architecture in which the interaction of the individual software elements is based on control by events. Here, the term “event” refers to an occurrence which has a significant consequence with regard to the interaction of hardware and software. This type of software architecture forms the programming framework for creating and recognizing events, as well as using the events themselves and the reactions triggered by the events.Why this is interesting for a Chief Digital Officer (CDO)?
As a Chief Digital Officer (CDO) it is elementary to manage the digital architecture.
