Jump into the benefits of event-driven architecture and discover how it benefits IT engineers and the organization as a whole.

The Top 3 Benefits of Event-Driven Architecture

Gartner describes event-driven architecture (EDA) as, “a design paradigm in which a software component executes in response to receiving one or more event notifications.” To put it simply, EDA enables a type of workflow that triggers tasks in response to real-time events. Consider the following example where a social media platform needs to verify a user’s age before the user can move forward and create their profile. 👇

Discover how serverless event-driven architecture can help you save hours of time on even the most headache-inducing problems.

A Complete Overview of Serverless Event-Driven Architecture [eBook]

As an IT engineer, you know just how much time you lose per day on repetitive administrative tasks. It’s frustrating, isn’t it? As a matter of fact, most IT engineers spend 32% of their day on non-value-add, repetitive, menial tasks. These time-consuming duties slow down productivity and only add to an engineer's already hefty workload, often causing burnout. Imagine how much time you could save by automating these tasks while eliminating the need for server maintenance. It sounds too good to be true, right? Luckily, this is entirely possible with serverless event-driven architecture and workflows. 😎

Discover how to instantly boost your team’s productivity by empowering your DevOps through serverless orchestration.

Serverless Orchestration: A Key Component in the Future of DevOps

Have you ever stopped to imagine how much less effective your business would be without DevOps? Think of how many streamlined processes would take nearly double the time for your team to complete! 😩 When considering just how crucial DevOps is, it may not shock you to learn that by 2026, the DevOps market will exceed $20 billion, with a CAGR of 24.7% from 2019 to 2026. With such a massive increase in only seven years, you might wonder what’s continuing to drive this rapid investment as we look to the future — and the explanation lies in serverless orchestration.

Sick of spending hours working on eliminating your technical debt? Learn how to prevent the pile up.

Got Technical Debt? Here’s What You Can Do to Keep it From Piling Up

We’ve all been there: an issue crops up at work, and it’s easier (and, in the moment, less stressful) to go with the quicker solution despite its obvious setbacks. Months later, you’re looking at the solution you chose and thinking, “Why on Earth didn’t I just take the time to do it right the first time?!” For IT engineers, these quickly patched problems often snowball into technical debt. Your quickly coded solution results in further bugs or lagging functionality that you have to go back and fix, eating into hours of time you could spend on more productive tasks — like iterating on new product features. Not to mention, the longer the debt accumulates, the more money it could cost your organization to fix.

Engineers have been flocking to cloud native solutions more and more — so what makes cloud native so appealing?

5 Reasons Engineers are Shifting to Cloud Native

Cloud native platforms have grown leaps and bounds over the past few years — with no signs of slowing down. According to Gartner, by 2025, over 95% of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud native platforms, increasing by 30% from 2021. Cloud native computing offers an easier approach to designing, constructing, and operating workflows that thrive within the cloud structure. These cloud native solutions take advantage of the scalability, elasticity, resiliency, and flexibility of the cloud, making cloud native an absolute dream for engineers. When creating and maintaining your workflows is so easy, it’s no wonder engineers are flocking to cloud native solutions! Let’s dive into just a few of the reasons engineers are shifting to cloud native:

While it may appear that serverless architecture is in decline, we couldn’t disagree more. Discover why.

Is Serverless Architecture Fading Out? Not So Fast

Serverless architecture allows software engineers to build and run workflows without the headache of infrastructure management, saving hours of time per project. With a serverless architecture, you don’t need to worry about purchasing or managing backend servers. So, why did the number of serverless developers decline by 3% from 2020 to 2021? The answer, in short: many engineers believe serverless architecture has little flexibility, making it difficult to adopt. The last thing you want is for your serverless solutions to make you feel locked in a box. After all, IT engineering and development is a creative pursuit at its core. 🎨

Discover how event-driven workflows can help you automate your password rotation process, boost productivity, and enhance efficiency.

Password Rotation Simplified: Why Event-Driven Workflows are the Key to Increasing Efficiency

Throughout the workday, most IT engineers spend 32% of their time on non-value-add activities. Administrative duties, such as meetings or operational tasks, take up meaningful time that IT engineers should spend on innovation, design, or development. What’s one task that requires too much of your time and effort? Let us guess… password rotation. 🤢 Be honest—you cringe every time you get pinged to change the passwords of your 100+ API integrations as each of the 30 or 60-day time period rolls around, right? We get it. Luckily, there’s a solution.

Uncover the reasons IT engineers are adopting Knative and discover what this growing adoption means for the cloud native industry.

The Future of Knative and What it Means for the Cloud Native Community

According to CNCF, Knative is an industry favorite non-hosted, serverless platform with a 27% adoption rate. Are we surprised? Hardly. Even major corporations, including IBM, RedHat, VMware, and SAP, are implementing the software into their daily infrastructure management. Knative provides IT engineers with the ability to run serverless workloads on Kubernetes clusters. This accelerates the time to build and orchestrate containers with Kubernetes (K8s) and makes the entire process more efficient. Think about Knative as the hot sauce to cloud native — it just makes everything better! 😉
