While messaging and eventing architectures have been a part of business commerce for decades now, generally accepted interfaces and protocols have not. However, that picture is changing rapidly, and the next decade will be marked, in part, by the rapid rise of event-driven integration, or “flow architectures”.

What does this future mean for the way businesses gain value from real-time information, and how might our current world evolve to meet that opportunity? How might the world look once standard event protocols and interfaces dominate digital systems integration?

Based on James Urquhart’s book, “Flow Architectures: The Future of Streaming and Event-Driven Integration”, this EDA Summit 2021 talk attempts to answer those questions, as well as lay out a case for why your business should be thinking “event first” today.
