Did you know that every large-scale, successful enterprise software has one thing in common? This mascot ensures that the software is able to communicate well with its counterparts, survive load, scale resources, and never let the application go down.
With increasing complexity and demand for highly scalable and robust applications, conventional monolithic architecture is no longer the best choice. After a certain threshold, monolithic architecture tends to hinder application performance and scalability. Moreover, with an enormous codebase, making changes to the tightly coupled, dependent processes in the monolithic architecture drastically increases the impact of single process failure.
Businesses no longer need to bear the burden of expenses tied to dedicated cloud servers during periods of inactivity. Serverless technology has emerged as a practical solution, enabling businesses to allocate developers without the necessity of substantial spending on backend frameworks.
The increasing business complexity and demand for highly scalable applications have brought a paradigm shift in how software applications are engineered. In the past few years, different software architectures are adopted by developers to reduce code complexity, improve fault isolation, and minimize time-to-market.
In today's digital age, where every click, transaction, and interaction matter, how we design software systems has transformed significantly. Think of it this way: picture a smart home system that adjusts the lighting and temperature based on your actions, just like a responsive assistant who understands your needs without you saying a word. This is the essence of Event-Driven Architecture (EDA), a concept that might sound complex but is rooted in a surprisingly simple idea: making technology respond to the real world just like we do.
The shift towards cloud-native architecture has gained significant momentum as organizations worldwide recognize the transformative power of cloud computing. By harnessing the power of cloud computing, businesses can unlock a plethora of benefits, enabling them to thrive in today's evolving technological landscape.
User data and intellectual property in the IT industry have traditionally been protected behind a layer of perimeter security strategies. However, the global movement of development environments to hybrid cloud-based architectures has proven perimeter security measures to be inadequate. Increasingly IT companies are shifting to zero-trust network security measures with the globally recognized motto of "Never trust, always verify".
The unprecedented proliferation of data generated by various digital sources has left businesses grappling with the complexities of managing large volumes of data. According to a report by IDC, the digital universe data is expected to reach 180 zettabytes by 2025. This massive amount of data presents significant challenges for organizations in terms of storage, processing, and analysis.
A large chunk of software development today takes place in cloud-based environments, with cross-organizational networks for resource sharing and data exchange. This opens up the applications and resources to several cyber threats that exploit common vulnerabilities and attack routes. Therefore, solutions for application security also referred to as AppSec, have become a necessary component of the software development lifecycle.
Cloud computing has enabled primary stakeholders in software development to deploy a broad set of resources and services for on-demand usage. Based on scalability, cost, performance, efficiency, and security these stakeholders can choose from a variety of deployment models for making these resources available over the cloud.
