The results of an industry-first survey on event-driven architecture (EDA), shedding light on how organizations are striving to incorporate real-time data and event-driven architecture into their IT landscape.

Led by independent research firm Coleman Parkes, the global survey of 840 respondents, in roles ranging from C-Suite to IT architecture, discovered: 

  • The majority of organizations, 85%, recognize the critical business value in adopting EDA
  • Adoption is still ‘early days’, as only 13% claim to have achieved full EDA maturity
  • The IT department is bought in, but more work needs to be done with business leadership

Gartner® asserts “as the mastery of EDA is essential to digital business, and achieving this mastery is a multistep process, application leaders — still lacking a plan of action for strategic use of EDA — must begin now.” *
