Thesis – Enterprise-Grade Event Mesh For Real-time integration

thesis subject has an emphasis on researching integration related topics. You’ll look into how new technologies are impacting current integration patterns and architectures. You’ll have a dedicated senior architect who will guide you during your assignment. 


Your Role


The last couple of years enterprises embraced cloud technologies. PaaS offerings enabled them to build more engaging apps more efficiently. By doing so, they not only enhanced the customer experience, but it also introduced them to Event-Driven Architectures.

You will investigate a next phase enterprises can undertake towards a truly real-time digital organization: Seamlessly connecting all their applications and services using event mesh technology.

Next to the first cloud success stories, an enterprise has a lot of other systems, data stores, apps, and services. And they all need to work together. It is the combination of all these systems that creates the company’s added value. These systems are typically scattered across private data centers, public clouds, partner’s data centers, IoT systems, etc. And on each of them, different development teams need to be able to work independently from one another.

E.g. an insurance company has an on-premise CRM system, a SaaS HR services, an IoT Platform, a custom developed insurance policy management platform, some mobile applications hosted on different public clouds. And a partner provided AI-driven forecasting systems. A lot of crucial systems.

By creating a working Event mesh platform you’ll showcase an environment where any change in any system propagates towards all the relevant systems in real-time.

E.g. a policy change in a mainframe of a privately managed data center is notified to all relevant customers via their preferred mobile channel. And the impact of the change is directly visible by the insurance management team in a mobile app.
