Free virtual event organized by Solace features astronaut Chris Hadfield and speakers from Slack, Google, SAP, Gartner, HP, Boomi, AT&T, RBC, Roche, and AWS, among others.

OTTAWA, Canada, March 30, 2021EDA Summit, the first global event devoted to the advancement of event-driven architecture (EDA) in business, will take place virtually from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST on May 19, 2021. Register for free here.

Modern organizations as varied as Netflix and Unilever, SAP and Amazon, LinkedIn and the Federal Aviation Administration rely on real-time event-driven architecture — a software design pattern in which decoupled applications can asynchronously publish and subscribe to events via an event broker — to digitally transform so they can deliver better customer experiences and meet increasingly competitive and volatile business conditions with greater organizational agility and resiliency.

According to a report from Gartner¹, the world’s leading research and advisory company, “EDA is at the very heart of real-time-sensitive digital business. Organizations capture real-world business events in digital form as they happen, by ‘listening’ to event sources like Internet of Things (IoT) devices, mobile applications, ecosystems, and social and business networks.” The report also states that “…a lack of event-driven architecture competency delays organization’s attempts to modernize.”

EDA Summit seeks to accelerate EDA competency by bringing together global business leaders, software architects, and technologists to share insights into the business and technical benefits of EDA, how to overcome implementation challenges, success stories on how modern enterprises are using EDA to underpin their digital transformations, and best practices for planning and managing event-driven journeys.

“We’ve been working with enterprises on event-driven architecture, especially those in capital markets, for nearly two decades,” said Solace CEO Denis King. “The quest to meet rising consumer expectations and develop real-time responsiveness now impacts every industry. EDA’s time has come and we are excited to bring together the world’s leading EDA thinkers to advance the state of the architecture.”
