Event-Driven Architecture

An event-driven architecture is a concept of triggering events in a publisher-subscriber relationship to effect change in a system.  More traditional architectures would rely on information being inserted into a database with downstream processes polling tables for those updates.  In an event-driven architecture, changes would be put on a queue by publishers and subscribers would act on those events in a near real-time fashion.
